What are Cookies?
Cookies are pieces of computer code that allow small amounts of information to be passed from your internet browser to our web server. They allow websites to recognise your PC, mobile, tablet or another device as you browse. For more detailed information about how cookies work, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
Cookies will never contain your name, address, telephone number or payment details. And, to confirm, will never disclose your personal details to any third parties, without consent.
Cookies serve many functions. Some examples are that they allow us to remember whether you are logged in to the site, to remember what items you had in your shopping basket and to serve content tailored specifically for you. Cookies are used with our marketing partners to present you with appropriate offers and advertising as you browse other sites on the internet, based on the products you looked at while on our site. Cookies also allow us to work alongside our web analytics partner, Coremetrics, to see how you like to use our websites, which pages or special functions you prefer and help us to make them better. This helps us to continually improve our service.
Turning off Cookies
Most web browsers will provide the option to turn off, or disallow cookies. How you do this depends on the web browser you're using. Instructions for disallowing cookies can usually be found in the browser's 'Help' menu. Note that it is common with most transactional websites, refusing cookies via your web browser will mean that you are unable to make a purchase. You will also find that the functionality of many other websites and services will be affected.
