Cookies are small text files placed on your computer by websites. They provide useful information, which helps in all sorts of ways. For you, it means you can use the site more efficiently. They also make sure you receive the most relevant information. For us, cookies help us to analyse how our customers interact with our sites so we can make improvements.
We don't record any personal information you provide during an on-site purchase or any other process
We use three types of cookies on our websites
- Session cookies that are deleted after each visit.
- Persistent cookies that remain in place across multiple visits to our sites.
- Third party cookies that are used by other services: Facebook, Twitter, Google, MySpace and Paypal.
Some of these cookies are essential and some are non-essential.
Here’s a list of essential cookies and how we use them:
These enable you to carry out some essential functions on our sites, such as maintaining log in details for the session or a transaction. They also help by minimising the need to transfer information across the internet. They are not stored on your computer and they expire when you terminate your browser session.
These enable us to recognise repeat visitors to the site. By matching an anonymous, randomly generated identifier, we're able to record specific browsing information such as how you arrive at the site, the pages you view, options you select, and the path you take through the site. By monitoring this information we’re able to make improvements to our sites.
We use Google Analytics's software to analyse page use, page interactions and the routes our customers take through our sites. These are known as 'web metrics'. We don't record any personal information you provide during an on-site purchase or any other process.
The __cfduid cookie is used to identify individual clients behind a shared IP address and apply security settings on a per-client basis. More info.
Some cookies are non-essential
These cookies are usually supplied by our business partners and help us to filter out irrelevant messages or pop-ups and to make sure that we only send you information that’s interesting and relevant to you. We also use some non-essential cookies for analytical purposes.
