Cookie Policy

Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’).

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or what’s in your shopping basket.

Cookies set by this website (first-party cookies) are used primarily to store items in your basket. Third-party cookies are used to provide us with web analytics to help us improve our store.

By using this website we assume that you are happy to receive all cookies. Listed below are the different types of cookies that we use on this website:

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are set by the website you are visiting and they can only be read by that site. We use these to store the items in your basket whilst you are browsing.

Session cookies

Session Cookies are stored only temporarily during a browsing session and are deleted from the user’s device when the browser is closed.

Persistent cookies

This type of cookie is saved on your computer for a fixed period and is not deleted when the browser is closed. We use this type of cookie to remember the contents of your basket, so the next time you visit us you can still see which items you were interested in without having to browse for them again. We remember baskets for up to two days.

Third party cookies

Third party cookies are set by a different organisation to the owner of the website you are visiting. For example, the website might use a third party analytics company who will set their own cookie to perform this service. The website you are visiting may also contain content embedded from, for example YouTube or Flickr, and these sites may set their own cookies. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor. All information collected is aggregated and therefore anonymous; it is only used to improve how the website works.

Web browser cookies

If you don’t want to receive cookies, you can modify your browser so that it notifies you when cookies are sent to it or you can refuse cookies altogether. You can also delete cookies that have already been set.

If you wish to restrict or block web browser cookies which are set on your device then you can do this through your browser settings; the Help function within your browser should tell you how. Alternatively, you may wish to visit www.aboutcookies.org, which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of desktop browsers.

Our website does work without cookies, but you will lose some features and functionality if you choose to disable cookies.
