Cookie Notice

A cookie is a small text file which is placed onto your computer (or other electronic device) when you access our website. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.

We use the following cookies:

  • Essential cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart or make use of payment services.
  • Analytics cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily and therefore improving the overall experience.
  • Functional cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences.
  • Personalisation cookies. These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and marketing and advertising campaigns more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

Use of cookies

The information we obtain from our use of cookies will not usually contain your personal data. Although we may obtain information about your computer [or other electronic device] such as your IP address, your browser and/or other internet log information, this will not usually identify you personally. In certain circumstances we may collect personal information about you—but only where you voluntarily provide it (eg by completing an online order, where you purchase goods or services from us.)

In most cases we will need your consent in order to use cookies on this website. The exception is where the cookie is essential in order for us to provide you with a service you have requested (to enable you to put items in your shopping basket and use our check-out process).
