Don’t worry if you don’t know too much about cookies, below we give you a summary of what they are, how they’re needed and what you can do to manage them.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files placed on your computer or mobile device. They’re used to store information about your visit and improve your browsing experience.
Cookies are used by us so that our website can remember what you have done whilst browsing as an example, remembering what product you have added to the basket in order to make a purchase.
Cookies are also used to provide you with targeted marketing, such as information about our products or services that we think you might be interested in.
The cookies we use on our website fall into four categories:
These cookies are essential for our website to work properly, the information they gather about you is not used for marketing purposes or remembering where you’ve been on the internet. They are used during the checkout process, which needs to store information temporarily in a ‘session’ regarding the products you are interested in – including number of products, what they are and their price etc. Without these session cookies, our checkout wouldn’t work properly. Session cookies are only stored for the duration of your visit to a website and are deleted from your device when you close your browser. Cookies are also used to remember you when you log-in.
These cookies anonymously collect information about how you use our website so we can understand how our website is performing and make improvements that could improve your experience.
These cookies are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, such as greeting you by name and remembering your preferences.
These cookies are used to tailor marketing to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the performance of the advertising campaign. They remember that you have visited a website and this information may be shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Although these cookies can track your visits to other websites, they do not store any personally identifiable information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience advertisements less relevant to you and your interests.
