Cookie Policy

What are cookies? : Cookies are small text files that contain data and are stored on your device when you visit a website.

Some cookies on this site are essential, and the site won't work as expected without them. For example : many people can be using this website at the same time. The server needs to keep track of which shopping basket belongs to who - it would get very confusing if the shopping baskets were to get muddled up!

Tracking cookies : In order to keep this website up-to-date, relevant and easy to use, we use Google Analytics services to understand how visitors use the site. For example, we can see which parts of a website are the most and least popular, so we can concentrate website content accordingly.

Google Analytics is a service that is designed and operated by Google on our behalf. This works by using small invisible images known as “web beacons” or “tracking pixels” that may be included in the website. These web beacons are anonymous and do not contain or collect any information, which means we cannot identify you personally. They are used to count the number of times something has been requested by a user.Google Analytics may also use cookies and/or other similar technologies to make the information collected by web beacons more useful. When you are viewing a website, a cookie is stored on your device and it can only be retrieved by the website that gave it to you.

Blocking / deleting cookies : If you disable cookies in your browser you will be able to look at products on this site, but you will not be able to add anything to your shopping cart... not good if you want to purchase something!

However, there are various ways that you can control and manage your cookies :

1/ Cookies in your website browser :

Website browsers allow you to accept cookies from certain websites and/or delete any cookies that have already been set. If you would like to learn more about how to manage cookies in your website browser, please see the 'managing cookies in your browser' section below.

Please remember that changing these settings will affect all websites that you visit, unless you choose to block cookies from particular websites.

2/ Google Analytics cookies :

It is possible to opt out of having your anonymous information shared with Google Analytics. Please remember that by not allowing Google Analytics to use cookies, this will stop us (and many other site administrators) from being able to learn what users like or don’t like about the websites you visit and how we can make them better.
