Viva! websites use two kinds of cookies:

  1. Site Cookies – Site cookies help provide you with a better website experience, such as ensuring that you can make payments to us online, and that we don’t show too many pop-up messages. These cookies don’t collect any personal information about you, but you can block them if you choose to.
  2. Third Party Cookies – These are cookies that websites other than the one you are visiting place on your device to track your behaviour. They help Viva! learn how people use our websites so we can improve them for you, as well as allowing you to connect to social media (such as when you ‘like’ our pages on Facebook), but they may also mean that other sites are able to track your activity. We don’t have any control over the data collected via third party cookies, but you can block them if you choose to.
  3. Viva! Shop – Our shop is hosted on Shopify who use user-input, performance, advertising, social, content and functional cookies. These are used to tailor your online experience to your preferences, to help keep the site (and your activity on it) secure, to ensure a smooth user experience and advertise to you. Shopify may track how you use the Viva! Shop and other sites to provide personalised advertising across the web using automated decision making. If you would like to opt out of this, we recommend changing your browser settings or using an adblocker. To view more information on tracking and cookies, or opting out, visit
