What are Cookies?

In the web world, cookies are tiny text files stored on your computer when you visit certain web pages. At Reiss.com we use cookies to keep track of what you have in your basket, and to remember you when you come back to us.
Cookies must be enabled to place an order with us. If you don't know if cookies are enabled on your computer, head over to our Managing Cookies section below for help. If you disable your cookies, you will be able to browse our site, but won't be able to make a purchase. You'll find that most web browsers already have cookies enabled, but, simply go to our Managing Cookies section below if you need help turning them on.
Don't worry about cookies - they can't harm your computer. And the cookies we create don't store sensitive information such as credit card details. We do use encrypted information gathered from them, but this is just to help improve your shopping experience. For example, they help us to identify and resolve errors, or select relevant related products to tempt you with.
Cookies don't just come from us; we have relationships with carefully-selected and monitored suppliers who may also set cookies during your visit for remarketing purposes. This basically means they will show you suggestions based on what you are interested in from shopping with us. If you'd like to opt out of these cookies, visit here for help.
The reason we're running through this cookie information is to comply with recent legislation, and to be open and honest about your privacy when using our website. We take the matter of cookies very seriously, and are working on a number of other privacy and cookie-related improvements.

However, if you wish to restrict, block or delete cookies from Reiss.com, or any other website, you will need to disable cookies in your browser. Each browser is different, so check the 'Help' menu of your particular browser (or your mobile phone's handset manual) to learn how to adjust your cookie preferences.

Below is a list of the 1st party cookies we use, and what we use them for:

  • session_id - Used to register the Current session ID
  • user_region - Used to determine the relevent region version of the site to display.
  • country_code - Country code of where the user is located, and used by GeoIP to redirect to the correct region.
