    Exclamation Bluepark Cookie Information

    It has been requested that we post some information about how Bluepark uses cookies.

    The answer is that we use them as sparingly as possible, there are only two cookies created by the Bluepark system:

    PHPSESSID

    (Contains a PHP "session ID", expires when the browser is closed)

    session

    (Contains a PHP "session ID", can also contain an email address and encrypted password, expires after one year)

    The "PHPSESSID" cookie is required so that the site can recognise the same user clicking from page to page. Without it, every page would be treated as the first visit to the site, and anything added to the shopping basket would be instantly forgotten. Online shopping would, therefore, be impossible.

    The "session" cookie is intended for the user's convenience, Bluepark creates this with a copy of the initial session ID so that they can be classed as "returning" and the contents of their shopping basket will still be available. If the user signs in with an email address and password, these login details are are also saved so that they can remain logged in when returning (the password is encrypted). If the user signs out, their login details are removed from the cookie.

    Any other cookies are created by 3rd party scripts such as Google Analytics.

    I've moved this to the public area so that it's more visible.

    Put your forum login details into your BP admin in users -> admin manager (select you) - > forum username / forum password.

    Once done you will see a new thread section on the BP forum called

    Can somebody please explain - if a user decides to disallow cookies, does this mean their purchase process will be hindered or that they will not be able to complete the purchase at all?

    Thanks
