Anonymous analytics cookies:

Every time someone visits our website, software provided by another organization generates an ‘anonymous analytics cookie’.
These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before.

Unless you are signed into thecandyshop.ro we cannot use these cookies to identify individuals. We use them to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page. If you are logged in, we will also know the details you gave to us for this, such as your user-name and email address.
