Cookie Policy

A summary on cookies, and how Chromatica Home uses cookies.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser.

They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences. Depending on the duration they are stored on the browser, there are either ‘session cookies’ (stored only while you browse the site) or ‘persistent cookies’ (stored even after you have left – e.g., one year). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in.

There are different types of cookies, depending on the sources that install them. Cookies  set by the website you are visiting are called ‘first-party cookies’. The cookies set by other websites who run content on said site are known as ‘third-party cookies’, such as the cookies that Facebook places if somebody ‘likes’ one of the posts on the site you are visiting.

Both websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as ‘web beacons’, or ‘pixels’. These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. If you disable cookies, the web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.

Types of cookies we use

We use cookies for a number of different purposes. Some cookies are necessary for technical reasons; some enable a personalized experience for both visitors and registered users; and some allow the display of advertising from selected third party networks. Some of these cookies may be set when a page is loaded, or when a visitor takes a particular action (clicking the ‘like’ or ‘follow’ button on a post, for example).

Essential: These are the cookies that are strictly necessary for our website to perform basic functions. These include, for example, those that enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart or perform account related functions.

Functionality: These cookies are used to recognize you when you return to our website. They enable us to personalize our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences, such as account name, language, and region. 

Analytics: These cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors as well as how the visitors move around our website when they are using it. These are set by trusted third party networks (e.g. Google Analytics) to track details such as the number of unique visitors, and pageviews to help improve the user experience, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

Advertising: We make use of different third party applications and services to enhance the experience of website visitors. These may include social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter (through the use of sharing buttons), or embedded content from YouTube and Vimeo.

What some of our customers have to say

Patricia R.

Could not be happier with the result, the sellers were very reactive and provided me with a digital preview which led to a lamp shade that is the perfect match (fit and design) for my refurbished vintage lamp. Was a bit pricey but have to admit, worth every cent! If I could rate 6 stars, I would!!

Wow, what a product. I am always excited to find stores which offer exceptional quality with service to match. I am very happy with my lampshade. It tied the room together. The price is well suited for the product. I wouldn’t pay less for the caliber of this lampshade. If I need a lampshade in the future, I will be returning to this shop for my business.

Love the color of the pillow. Makes my living room have a pop of color. The colors are the same in person as they are in the picture. I bought 5 different types of pillows from Chromatica and they all make talking pieces in my home. 100% recommend buying.

I ordered 5 different designs to mix-and-match in my newly renovated family room and I love them! They arrived on time as specified. At first, I couldn’t decide which designs to choose as I liked them all. The colors are better than I expected and they are rich and vibrant. The fabric is sturdy and soft to the touch but the best part is that the covers are machine washable. Now I want to renovate the rest of the house so I can buy more!

Love my new tote! The print quality is beautiful with vivid colors. It’s made with a strong yet soft material that looks to be very durable. Can’t wait to use it on my upcoming trip – or any day for that matter!

Finally, I found the perfect lampshade. I purchased a lamp from a secondhand store a couple of years ago and then struggled to find a lampshade that both fit and covered the lamp’s long neck. I had tried a few off the shelf options, but none of them worked with the lamp. Carene and Carlos understood what I wanted, and by simply providing them with specific measurements they were able to make a high-quality, stylish lampshade

I forgot to mention that the shop was very helpful as they created a mock-up of the designs so I could visualize them together. That really helped in my decision-making process.
