Cookie Usage

Our website uses cookies.  A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that are placed on your computer, tablet or mobile device when you visit a website and distinguish you from other users of the site. 

We use cookies in order to keep track of what you have in your shopping basket, to identify when you return to our site and to remember your last filtering choice.  We may also use ‘analytical’ cookies, for example, to count the number of visitors to the site and see how they move around the site when using it.  They are used to provide you with a good experience when you browse, allow us to improve our site and to optimise our marketing campaigns. 

We may use advertising and third party cookies, web beacons and other storage technologies to collect or receive information from our website and elsewhere on the Internet.  These are used to measure, optimise and build target audiences for our advertising campaigns.  We also share information about your use of our site with our trusted social media, advertising and analytics partners.  

Please also refer to our privacy policy for more information about how we use your data.

About Cookies

 The length of time a cookie will stay on your device depends on whether it is a ‘session’ cookie or a ‘persistent’ cookie.  Session cookies usually stay on your device until you stop browsing.  Persistent cookies are stored on your device in between browser sessions and stay until they expire or are deleted.

First party cookies are placed on your device by the website you visit.  Third party cookies are placed on your device by a domain other than the one being visited by you.

Depending on their function, there are four categories of cookies: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies and marketing cookies.

Strictly necessary cookies
– these are essential to enable you to move around the website and use its features.  Without these some services such as shopping baskets cannot be provided.

Performance cookies
– these collect information about how a website is used, for example which pages visitors use most often and if they get error messages from web pages.  These cookies don’t save information that would identify the visitor; the information is aggregated and therefore anonymous.  They are used to improve the performance of the site and the user experience.

Functional cookies
- these allow the website to remember choices made and entered by the user (such as user name, language or location).  The information collected by these cookies may be anonymised and cannot track your browsing activities on other websites.

Marketing cookies
– these cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests.  They are also used to limit the amount of times you see an advert and they help to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns.  These cookies remember whether you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers.

Google Analytics & Advertising Features

We may use Google Analytics Advertising features including:

Remarketing with Google Analytics:  This feature is used for on-line advertising.  Google and other third parties may show our advertisements on sites across the internet.  They may also use cookies to serve advertisements based on your previous visits to our website.

Google Display Network Impression Reporting:  This feature lets us create all types of advertisements e.g.image and video, and place these ads on websites relevant to what we are selling and show those ads to the people who are likely to be most interested.

Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting:  This feature collects anonymous data (e.g. age, gender, interests) and is used for optimising our website and marketing campaigns.  

The information collected by these cookies will not personally identify users to our website.  We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifying information from any source.

Facebook Analytics & Advertising Features

We may use the Facebook pixel on our website.  The Facebook pixel is a tracking code which allows us to measure and optimise our advertising campaigns served on Facebook.  We may also use the Facebook pixel to create retargeting advertisements and build audiences for our advertising campaigns served on Facebook to ensure that our adverts are seen by users who are likely to be most interested.  You can opt-out of the Facebook advertising features by changing your settings in Facebook here.

Web Beacons

We may embed web beacons in our marketing emails which we send out using MailChimp.  Web beacons are small transparent image files which are used to track your journey around a single website or collection of websites.  We use them in our marketing emails so that we may track your receipt of our emails, how often you view our adverts and which website pages you visit.  Web beacons are activated each time you open a marketing email or access a page on our website which contains a web beacon.  You can access the MailChimp privacy policy here.

Please note that we are not responsible for content on other sites.
