How We Use Cookies on Our Website

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer or other device which we can access when you visit our site. Some cookies are essential to the way this site works, for example to distinguish you from other users of our site and to store information to enable you to use our site effectively or to order items.

Certain cookies are temporary and are automatically deleted from your computer or device when you leave this site or close your browser. These are called 'session cookies', and since this type of cookie is essential to carry out actions which you've asked the site to do, such as adding items to your basket and checking out, we will use these without explicitly asking your permission. Other types of cookie are not automatically deleted when you close your browser. These are called 'persistent cookies', and can be used to store information between your browsing sessions, such as your preferred settings on a website, or the items that you added to your basket on your last visit. By law, we are required to ask your permission before storing non-essential cookies on your computer.

This website uses cookies for the following purposes:

  • To remember your language and country preferences on the site.
  • To remember what you put in your basket on your last visit, so that we can keep your basket contents for you if you didn't already buy them.
  • To track customer behaviour such as the pages visited when you accessed our website, and the rate of basket abandonment. This helps us to improve the site and your browsing experience. This tracking information is processed by a third party but isn't linked to any of your personal details and doesn't identify you as an individual.

The tables below contain details of the cookies we use and why. The data we collect and record via cookies are completely anonymous and will never contain any of your personal details.
