What are cookies?
There are two distinct types of cookies – the ones we use on www.InStitches.co.ke (called first party cookies) and the ones companies we work with use (we call these third-party cookies). Need to reword this a bit, as I presume Google Analytics will be used? Please advise.
To order products on www.InStitches.co.ke you need to have first party cookies enabled. If you don’t wish to enable cookies, you’ll still be able to browse the site and use it for research purposes.
These cookies keep track of your movement from one page to another so that you do not get asked for the same information twice. Our shopping basket uses these cookies to remember your selections so that when you proceed to the checkout we know what you have in your shopping basket. These cookies are also to manage your login details and to make sure your logged in areas are secure. Functionality cookies may be used to recognise you when you return to the website. This will enable us to personalise content for you, greet you by name and remember your online preferences.
The analytics service used by our website use the following Cookies:

At times, In Stitches would like to use testimonials from customers to demonstrate the quality of the services and fashions provided. Permission to do so will always be sought. If a customer has given us prior consent to use a testimonial for our promotion purposes they will always have the right to change their mind and ask us to desist.
SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY
Communication, engagement and actions taken through external social media platforms that this website and its owners participate on, are custom to the terms and conditions as well as the privacy policies held with each social media platform respectively.
Users are advised to use social media platforms wisely and communicate / engage upon them with due care and caution in regard to their own privacy and personal details. We will never ask for personal or sensitive information through social media platforms.
This website may use social sharing buttons which help share web content directly from web pages to the social media platform in question. Users are advised before using such social sharing buttons that they do so at their own discretion, and note that the social media platform may track and save your request to share a web page respectively through your social media platform account.
SHORTENED LINKS IN SOCIAL MEDIA
This website and its owners, through their social media platform accounts, may share web links to relevant web pages. By default some social media platforms shorten lengthy urls (web addresses). They will look something like this: https://bit.ly/2zsJUKT
Users are advised to take caution and good judgement before clicking any shortened urls published on social media platforms by this website and its owners. Despite the best efforts to ensure only genuine urls are published, many social media platforms are prone to spam and hacking and therefore this website and its owners cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any shortened links.
