What are cookies
Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”).
Both websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer/any device in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.
Our cookies don't hold personal information such as your name. They simply let us find information once you're logged in or help link your browsing information to you and your personal information when you choose to register for a service or newsletter.
To do this we sometimes use persistent cookies. We take looking after your personal information seriously – we're always monitoring and improving how we protect it.
We've put our cookies into the following categories, to make it easier for you to understand why we need them:
Strictly necessary – these are used to help make our website work efficiently;

Functionality – these help to enhance your experience by doing things like remembering choices you make and provide a more enhanced, personal features; and
First party cookies originate from the same domain as the website you’re currently visiting www.barcindia.co.in. Third party cookies originate from a domain that’s different to the website being visited. For example, when you visit our website, we may link to another company's website – like our Facebook or Twitter account, or a video from our YouTube page.
So, when you 'Like' or 'Tweet' an item from our website, these sites may sometimes put cookies on your computer. We don't control how they use their cookies, so we suggest you check their website to see how they're using them and how you can manage them.
