Our Policy On Cookies

What Is A Cookie ?

Cookies are small pieces of information that a website stores on your computer. That cookie is then passed back to the website each time you visit a page on their website.

Cookies were invented by Netscape and have long been an integral part of the internet.

Cookies try to address the fundamental "problem" that webpages do not have memory, yet could improve your experience by remembering how you have interacted with them.

Cookies can for example hold preferences you have selected on the website so that you do not have to reset these preferences each time you visit the site.

A cookie may save your username if you select the "Remember Me" box presented by many websites that require you to log in.

Other websites will use cookies to try to personalise your experience of their website by changing how it is presented according to how you have browsed their website previously.

If a website contains adverts then the companies that have placed those adverts may also store cookies on your computer.

Our Cookie Policy

We do not automatically store any cookies on your computer. Neither do we allow advertising on our website so no other company stores cookies on your computer as a result of visiting our website. We will use a cookie under the following circumstances:

To Identify Your Shopping Basket

When you place an item into your shopping basket we create a cookie containing the name of your shopping basket.

The name of your shopping basket is just an alphanumeric string of characters such as "T98smDIcKGkAABzyHuYAAAAB".

Then when you want to view your shopping basket, add or delete items from your basket or go to the checkout, we can identify which is your shopping basket.

To Identify Our Affiliates

Our customers can register as an affiliate and get their own shop. Part of the registration process is choosing a name for their shop. When someone visits a shop owned by an affiliate we use a cookie to store the name of the shop. This enables us to identify which shop the purchase was made from.
