Cookies

We need to share our new cookie recipe with you. As part of our initiative to comply with recent legislation changes, and to make sure we're clear about your privacy when using our website, we've developed clearer information on cookies and how we use them.

What are cookies?

We like cookies here at Urban Outfitters, and we're not just talking about the sugary kind. As well as being the name for a sweet treat, the term cookies also refers to tiny text files stored on your computer when you visit certain web pages. We use these important pieces of information to remember who you are when you come back and visit, keep track of what you have in your basket and tailor our website exactly to your needs.

Cookies & how they affect you

Completely harmless to your computer, cookies don't store personally identifiable information such as name, address or payment details, but they do provide us with encrypted information to help improve your experience of the site. For example, they help us to identify errors, suggest related products you may like when browsing and allow you to connect with social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. We do use other "third party" cookies who may also set cookies during your visit to be used for retargeting purposes. You always have the option of disabling cookies, but your browsing experience will be compromised.

Cookies can be defined into four types of cookies: Strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functionality cookies, targeting or advertising cookies. A list of all the cookies used on the Website by category is set out below.
