Cookie Policy

This site uses cookies – small text files that are placed on your machine to help the site provide a better user experience. In general, cookies are used to retain user preferences, store information for things like shopping baskets, and provide anonymised tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics. As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better. However, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or taking a look at the About Cookies website which offers guidance for all modern browsers

So, here is more of a breakdown!

1 – Our website uses cookies

2 – A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to your browser and then stored there. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a new page from the server, or you take an action such as adding an item to your basket.

3 – Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser until a set expiry date. A persistent cookie can, however, be deleted by a user at any point. A session cookie will expire at the end of your user session i.e. when you close your browser.

4 – Cookies do not typically contain information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

5 – We use both session and persistent cookies to make your user experience more useful

6 – Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. However, doing so will mean that we will be unable to operate simple functions such as the cart and checkout. To explain this, a session cookie would store information in your browser about which item you added to your basket. Therefore, when you click on a different page we are able to remember what item you added to your cart so you can then go on and checkout.

7 – Blocking all cookies will have a detrimental impact on the usability of many websites.

8 – Deleting cookies will also have a negative impact on the usability of many websites.

9 – Cookies are your friends.
