COOKIE NOTICE

By using this website you consent to the use of cookies in accordance with this Cookie Notice. If you do not consent to the use of these cookies please disable them following the instructions in this Cookie Notice so that cookies from this website cannot be placed on your device.

WHAT IS A COOKIE?

Cookies are small text files which are sent to your device when you visit a website. E-commerce websites place cookies on visitor's browsers to retain login credentials, identify customers, and provide a customized shopping experience. Cookies are sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies act as a memory for a website, allowing that website to remember your device on your return visits. Cookies can also remember your preferences, improve the user experience as well as tailor the adverts you see to those most relevant to you.

Generally speaking, cookies do not contain personal information from which you can be identified, unless you have furnished such information to the website.

Cookies are an essential part of the Internet. Without them, webpages would be a great deal less useful and interactive. E-commerce would be impossible. They give websites the ability to remember and improve.

You can find more information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your device and how to manage and delete them at www.aboutcookies.org

WHAT IS A WEB BEACON?

A Web beacon is an often-transparent graphic image, usually no larger than 1 pixel x 1 pixel, that is placed on a Web site or in an email that is used to monitor the behavior of the user visiting the Web site or sending the email. It is often used in combination with cookies.

Web beacons allow us to count users who have visited certain pages and to generate statistics about how our site is used. They are not used to access personally identifiable information.

Unlike cookies, you cannot decline Web beacons. However, setting your browser to decline cookies or to prompt you for a response will keep Web beacons from tracking your activity.

WHAT COOKIES DO

Secure websites use cookies to validate a user's identity as they browse from page to page; without cookies, login credentials would have to be entered before every product is added to the cart or wish list. 

TYPES OF COOKIES 

Purpose

Description

Strictly Necessary

Cookies which are strictly necessary to provide services requested by the user

Performance

Cookies which collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages

Functionality

Cookies which allow a website to remember choices a user makes (such as user name, language or the region) and provide enhanced, more personal features

Targeting or advertising

Cookies which are used to deliver adverts more relevant to a user and his or her interests. They are also used to limit the number of times a user sees an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign 


SESSION AND PERSISTENT

Session cookies stay on a browser and retain your information until it is closes. When a new browser window is opened, the same user is treated as a new visitor and must input their login credentials.

Persistent cookies have a designated lifespan and remain in a browser until the period elapses or the cookie is manually deleted. Websites that use persistent cookies will remember users even after they close a browser. Persistent cookies enable features such as persistent shopping carts, which retain products added to cart between sessions.
