Cookie Policy

 

Our site uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our site. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our site, provide you with a personalised, tailored experience and also allows us to improve our customer journey.

By continuing to use our site you agree to our use of cookies.

What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a small file of data which our site places on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies allow our site to respond to you as an individual and let us tailor our site to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about you.

How We Use Cookies

We use cookies to help us provide you with a better site. For instance, cookies are used to remember your preferences on sites you visit often, to remember your user ID and the contents of your shopping basket, and to help you navigate between pages more efficiently.

We use ‘essential cookies’ that must be set (for example so you can use the shopping basket, move between pages of our site or complete a purchase) and ‘analytical cookies’ to help track and improve the performance of the site.

Our site uses persistent and session cookies:

  • Persistent cookies allow a site to recognize users when they return to a site and keep certain information on user preferences. Persistent cookies provide convenient and rapid access to familiar objects, which enhances the user experience. These cookies stay on a computer until they are deleted by the user.
  • Session cookies allow a site to carry over information from one page to another so that a user does not have to re-enter information. These cookies delete themselves at the end of the session or at a certain time.

You can find more information about the individual cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them in the table below:
