The cookies we use can be divided into 4 types each of which is outlined below:
1. Website Functionality Cookies
Website functionality cookies are essential in order to enable the site to provide services requested such as navigation, remembering shopping bag items and processing orders in “Shop”, from cart to checkout. The website cannot function properly without these cookies.
2. Anonymous Analytics Cookies
Anonymous analytics 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 Hotjar cookies to highlight areas where we can improve areas such as navigation, shopping experience and marketing campaigns.
3. Marketing Cookies
Marketing cookies are used to track visitors across websites. 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.
4. Customer Account Cookies
If you choose to subscribe to our newsletter or create an account with us and authenticate or “log in” with that account during subsequent visits, a customer preference cookie allows the site to remember details from your previous visits. These can then be used to provide you with a simpler browsing experience, more appropriate with your selections, customizing your visits so that they are easier and more pleasant to navigate.
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. 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 our first-party, website functionality cookies enabled. Your browser “help” section will provide details on how to manage the cookie settings.
