The cookies we use can be divided into 4 types each of which is outlined below:
1. Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are necessary in order to enable the site to provide services requested such as navigation, selecting product sizes, remembering shopping bag items and processing orders from cart to checkout. The website cannot function properly without these cookies.
2. Functional Cookies
These cookies enable the site to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation options. For example, if you choose to create an account with us and authenticate or “log in” with that account during subsequent visits these cookies allow the site to reuse details from your previous visits to provide you with a simpler browsing experience that is easier and more pleasant to navigate. Enhanced functionality cookies like these may be set by us or by thrid party providers whose services we have added. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
3. Performance Cookies
These cookies measure and analyse how visitors use the website. This helps us to understand how our visitors and customers interact with the site and allows us to continuously improve our website and your shopping experience. We utilise Google Analytics cookies to help us understand how customers arrive at and browse our site, and to highlight areas where we can improve areas such as navigation, shopping experience and marketing campaigns. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
4. Targeting Cookies
These cookies are used to track visitors across websites and may be set through our site by our advertising partners. The intention is to display advertisements that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for publishers and third party advertisers. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
By using our website you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device and access them when you visit the site in the future, depending on your responses given to the Cookie Preferences Manager, provided by OneTrust. Each browser is a little different, but you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or to block just the third-party cookies for analytics and advertising, or to turn off all cookies. As cookies are used to track shopping basket items through the order process, it will not be possible to place on order without the strictly necessary cookies enabled. Your browser “help” section will provide details on how to manage the settings for cookies.
