Information Collected by Cookies
We use cookies on the Bottle Your Brand Website. In case you're wondering why we keep baked goods on our website, a cookie is a small text file on your computer which our website sends to your computer to allow our website to store some of your information. Bottle Your Brand's cookies do not collect or store personally identifiable information. Rather, the cookie stores a token which uniquely identifies a particular user at a particular time. That token is then linked to the user information in our secured databases. You can always reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to display a message when a cookie is being sent.
