The browser then returns the cookie to the web server, recognising that you have visited the site before and coordinates your access on that website. If you visit our website again the cookie enables the server to recognise that you have visited before and helps co-ordinate your access to different pages on our website.  We may use cookies to monitor use of the website and to serve you better when you return to it.

Advertising and Third-Parties

Should you leave our site, irrespective if you have clicked on any advertising from our website or email communications, our Policy no longer applies. You are then bound by the privacy policy of the subsequent site.  It is in your best interest to review these.

We take no responsibility of any consequences arriving from such subsequent sites.

Business Transactions

If ownership or management of South City Shopping Centre, or of the website or any of its portions changes, your personal information may be transferred to the new owner or manager, so the website can continue operations with the then-current privacy policies still applicable, without requiring your further consent.
