Use of Cookies

The Jouleassets.com website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server.

For example, if you personalize Jouleassets.com pages, or register with Jouleassets.com site or services, a cookie helps Jouleassets.com to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Jouleassets.com website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Jouleassets.com features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Joule Assets services or websites you visit.
