What are cookies?
What sort of cookies do we use, and why?
Strictly necessary and performance related cookies
You may have noticed that when you’ve been away from our site and come back for another visit, anything you may have placed in your shopping bag is still there, or if you have logged in before we remember your name, this is because when you left our site earlier a cookie was stored on your computer which remembers this information.
In order to remember what you’ve done as you jump from page to page, we use a ‘first party’ cookie which deletes itself after you leave the site; For example if you add a lovely product to your shopping bag and clicked on the checkout to pay, without this cookie we wouldn’t be able to remember what you’d added on the previous page meaning you wouldn’t be able to buy anything!
We use the following strictly necessary & performance related cookies:
|Customer||This cookie is sent to you the moment you leave and stores your customer ID. This means that anything you’ve added to your basket will still be there when you return to the site (handy).|
|Session||This cookie lasts for the duration of your visit and is erased when you close your browser. It tracks your movement within the site which means that you don’t have to re-enter information you may have already given on a previous page. Without this cookie, anything you may have added to your shopping bag would be lost when you visited another page on the site.|
|Google Analytics||This allows us to compile general (not personal) anonymous user activity such as number of visitors, time on site, number of pages viewed, new/returning visitor ratios etc. This information can only be viewed by us and we use it to continually monitor the performance of the website and improve your user experience.|
Whilst you are on our website, we use various tools to interact with you - for example writing product reviews, asking questions about our products or sharing your favourites on social media networks.
Social Media Sharing: These cookies apply when you 'like' one of our products or share it on a social network like Facebook or Twitter
