What is a cookie? Basically, it’s a piece of tracking software which allows you to use all the features of an online retail website, like adding products to your shopping basket. Meanwhile, the online retailer is able to identify and track your activity, but only on their website. Not anywhere else.
We make use of both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies. We use the session cookies to keep track of you while you navigate the website. Meanwhile, the persistent cookies enable our website to recognise you when you visit. So if you left something in your shopping basket last time you visited, it should still be there waiting for you when you return.
Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser.
Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.
Our advertisers and payment services providers may also send you cookies to track your online activity. But once again, this will only track your activity on their websites and our website.
Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. However, this will often have a negative impact on the usability of many websites, including ours.
Where you submit personal information for publication on our website, we will only ever publish and use that information in accordance with the license you grant to us.
Similarly we will not, without your express consent, share your personal information with any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.
