What is a Cookie?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Your browser sends these cookies back to the originating website on each visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie.
Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. Cookies can do many different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, storing your shopping basket and generally improving the user experience.
We've categorised the cookies used on this website based on the categories found in the ICC UK Cookie guide. A list of the types of cookies used on this website by category is set out below.
Category 1: strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, we can't provide the basic elements of our service, like the shopping basket, changing currency or signing in to your account.
Category 2: performance cookies
These cookies 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. These cookies don’t collect "personally identifiable information" (that is, information that can be used to identify the visitor). The information these cookies collect is aggregated and is therefore anonymous. It is only used to make decisions on improving how our website works. Google Analytics, for example, sets these types of cookies.
Category 3: functionality cookies
These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies aren't essential to make the website work, but make it better or more convenient to use. For instance, our website allows you to remember your sign-on, so you don't have to log on each time. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised, and these cookies cannot track your browsing activity across other websites.
