We would like to inform you of the use of cookies on the website.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a simple text file containing a small amount of data which is downloaded to your computer when you visit a website.

Most websites you visit will use cookies and tracking technologies to enable them to “remember” you and help them to arrange their content and layout to your particular preferences and improve your user experience. For example, when you go back to a website to purchase items again, data such as your name and email address may be automatically filled in, which will help to make your interaction with a website faster and easier. If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it won’t recognise you and it won’t be able to keep you logged in or remember what’s in your shopping basket.

A cookie is downloaded by the server of the website you have visited and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser and will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the website name.

A ‘session cookie’ is used for the duration of one visit to a website and is deleted from your computer when the browser is closed. A persistent cookie is used when you visit a website repeatedly (and the website would like to remember your preferences for your next visit) and is saved on your computer for a fixed period (usually a year or longer).

Some websites will also use cookies to enable them to target their advertising or marketing messages based on information such as your location and the types of searches that you do.

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) which can only be read by that site, or they may be set by other websites which run content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’). Third party cookies are set by a different organisation to the owner of the website you are visiting.

How the website uses cookies

The website uses a session cookie to remember settings and help you move around the site and use certain features more effectively, such as accessing secure areas of the shop.

These are non-persistent session cookies which are deleted after you leave the website. These cookies do not retain sensitive information such as contact details or payment information.

We do not use advertising cookies. Any adverts placed on the website by external companies remain on set pages of the website, and are not based on your preferences or how you navigate around the website.
