Why do we use cookies?

Cookies are used for a variety of reasons, from making a website function more efficiently, to recognising a user’s device and tailoring that user’s experience to fit prior preferences.

In some of our email messages, we may use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the DistributionNOW website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page of our website. We track the click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to receive these communications, we do provide an unsubscribe link on all email communications that you can manage your subscription.

What cookies do we use?
