Through this website you can buy physical color wheels. To track the contents of the shopping cart, we use 'local storage', an HTML5 technique that allows websites to store data on the user's computer. We only store product information, for example to know which products and quantities are added. As a result, no personal information is stored via this method.
Storing the contents of the shopping cart is an essential part of an online store. If you don't complete the order and return to this website at a later time, the contents of your shopping cart will be displayed immediately thanks to local storage so that you do not have to add the products again. If you want to delete this data from your computer, you can do so by emptying the memory of your browser. In addition, the contents of the shopping cart will be automatically deleted as soon as you have successfully completed the order.
