Cookies and our Online Store

You may have noticed our new online store looks different – that’s because it is! We’ve made it easier to add items to your shopping cart from anywhere on the Digital Check website, but in order to do that, your browser needs to have cookies enabled. Use the links below to learn how this works and get specific instructions to correct the issue on the most common browsers.

What are cookies? Why does the online store use them?

In simple terms, cookies are tiny snippets of information that a website stores on your computer. That helps the site “remember” your computer so it can keep track of you as you move from page to page. When you add an item to your shopping cart in our online store, a cookie is used so that our store can match your computer to the right order when you check out. If your browser is blocking cookies, our checkout app won’t be able to “see” you, and your shopping cart will appear empty when you click the checkout button.

What are third-party cookies and how are they different?

Third-party cookies are cookies that pass information to a website other than the one you are on. For example, the checkout process for our online store is handled by netsuite.com – so the cookies are helping to “hand off” information between digitalcheck.com and netsuite.com.

On other sites, third-party cookies are commonly associated with advertising and even malware, so some browsers (and plugins) may block them by default, even if other cookies are allowed. The third-party cookies on digitalcheck.com are not used for any purpose other than to control the online store.

I used to be able to use your online store without cookies. Why can’t I now?

Our old web store actually used cookies also; just not third-party cookies. Our entire online store used to be hosted at netsuite.com, so the cookies originated from the same site. Our new online ordering process was intended to make it easier to buy items directly from our main website, but the tradeoff is that third-party cookies become necessary for the checkout process. We are currently working on solutions for this issue and thank you for your patience.
