What are cookies?

Most websites collect certain basic information on their users. To do this, files known as cookies (small text files) are created on users’ devices. These cookies allow websites to recognise users on subsequent visits, to remember preferences, and to tailor advertising. Some data collected by cookies is used to detect visitor number and browsing patterns to inform improvement of user experience.

Information collected by cookies is classed as personal data.

How do we use Cookies?

Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of the website, and to personalise your experience of the site. Amongst other things, the cookies we use allow us to calculate how many visitors we have and how long they stay on our site, allow you to register to make purchases and leave comments, and remember what is in your shopping basket while you browse the site.

The cookies used on our website can be divided into two types and four functions:


  • Persistent cookies remain on a user’s device for a period of time specified by the cookie. They are activated each time the user visits the website that created that cookie.
  • Session cookies are temporary. These track actions undertaken after a browser window is opened and are deleted once that browser window is closed.


Strictly necessary cookies are essential to navigate around our website, log into an account, add items to the shopping basket, or submit payment.

Performance cookies allow us to collect statistical data on the number of visitors to our website, and how visitors move around our website. These cookies help us to improve our website, and do not contain personal information such as names or email addresses.

Functionality cookies are used to record preferences, including username and region, to help us personalise your experience of the website.

Advertising cookies Occasionally we may advertise our products on social media or websites. Cookies will be used to help with this process, and the social media operator (e.g. Instagram) will utilise cookies data to target advertising on our behalf. 

Please note that some third parties (including, for example, Google) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.
