Forces War Records Cookie Policy

Last updated: January 2022

This Cookie policy describes how we use cookies and other similar technologies in connection with the services on the Forces War Records (“FWR”) site ( website). Any capitalised term used and not otherwise defined below has the meaning assigned to it in our Privacy Policy.  

What is a Cookie?

Cookies are small text files, stored in your browser or on your hard drive, that allow us to differentiate between you and all our other visitors. Most sites you visit use Cookies to improve your online experience—and we are no different. They help site providers with things like remembering a user’s login details, storing site preferences and understanding how a user interacts with a site.

Does FWR use Cookies on the site?

Yes. We use Cookies in accordance with our Privacy Policy to:

  • ensure that our services function properly;

  • detect and prevent fraud;

  • understand how visitors use and engage with our site;

  • set your preferences;

  • deliver relevant advertising; and

  • analyze and improve services.

Who sets Cookies when I use the services?

There are two main types of Cookies that can be set:

  • First party Cookies: these Cookies are placed by us on the FWR site directly when you use our services. First party Cookies may include Cookies from service providers.

  • Third party Cookies: these Cookies do not belong to FWR. They are owned by other companies, like Google or Facebook, and are used for site analytics and advertising purposes. See further details below on how to manage these Cookies. Third-party Cookies will be providing a service to us or a function to us but we cannot control how those third-party Cookies are used.

There are many benefits to using Cookies. For example, every time you visit our site we can log you in automatically, and remember your preferences. Plus, we can keep you logged in as you move around the site and give you a personal experience.


What cookies does FWR use

Category of Cookie



These Cookies are essential for the operation of our services. These Cookies do things like ensure that your password works and you stay logged in when you move between pages on the site and help the site to remember details like what is in your shopping cart or how far you are through an order. Necessary Cookies cannot be removed or turned off.

We use those Cookies in a number of different ways, including:

  • Authentication – To remember your login state so you don’t have to log in as you navigate through our websites.

  • Fraud Prevention and Detection – Cookies and similar technologies that we deploy through our website help us learn things about computers and web browsers used to access the services. This information helps us monitor for and detect potentially harmful or illegal use of our services.

  • Security – To protect your data from unauthorized access.


These Cookies allow our site to operate at its best and remember your preferences when you have an account with us (such as your username, language or the region you are in). They also help us to understand how our site is used so that we can measure and improve its performance.


Analytics Cookies help us understand how users interact with our services. We use those Cookies to analyse and improve our services. Cookies help us understand how people reach our site and they give us insights into improvements or enhancements we need to make to our services.

We use them to improve how our site works, understand what interests our users, and measure content effectiveness.


Advertising Cookies are used to better understand your interests and show you ads from FWR and our third-party advertising partners that are more relevant to you. Advertising Cookies may be used to share data with advertisers (also referred to as online behavioral advertising) so that the ads you see are more relevant to you, including from our partners, and allow you to share certain pages with social networks.

These Cookies limit the number of times you see an advertisement. We work with third parties who do this for us and we may, in limited circumstances, also place ads around our related brands’ sites.

What Cookies does FWR use?

The FWR cookie table lists the Cookies used on the site.  Please note that the names of Cookies, pixels and other technologies may change over time and we will update our resources when that happens.

How do I manage my Cookies?

Please note: If you change your browser settings to block all Cookies, or if you switch off certain Cookies, you may not be able to access some or all parts of our site and the site may not work as intended.

In addition, if you delete, block or otherwise restrict Cookies, or if you use a different device or internet browser, you will need to renew your preferences again.

Generally, you can find out more about Cookies and get advice discovering what Cookies have been set and how you can manage and delete them at

Do-Not-Track Disclosure
