COOKIES

We may use technology to track the patterns of behaviour of visitors to our site. This can include using a cookie internet file, a small file that is sent by our web server to your computer, which we can access when you make return visits to our website.

Storing cookies is usual practice for any website that needs to remember what its users’ preferences are and we use cookies to keep track of your selections on the website. You can usually modify your browser to prevent this happening (www.aboutcookies.org) for more information on this.

If you choose not to receive cookies, you may still use most of the features on our website, including the ability to purchase items.

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. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

CATEGORY 4: TARGETING COOKIES OR ADVERTISING COOKIES

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.

You can delete existing cookies from your web browser and choose not to receive cookies in the future. This can be done by editing your web browser options. Please note that if you disable cookies, certain functionalities of the website may be affected. Source
