This website uses a small number of cookies to ensure you have the best and most secure experience using our website.
What are cookies?
The nature of the internet is such that without help, a web site does not know who is making which request for a page. This means that as you move between pages in a web site, the web site does not have a way of remembering things that you ask to happen – for example putting things into your shopping basket. Similarly, it would not know who you are when you are logged in.
This problem has been solved over time by using things like cookies. In essence they serve as a token that your browser can present to the website on every request so that it knows which page requests go together to make up your visit.
In real terms, a cookie is a small text file that is placed and stored on your computer, mobile or other device by websites that you visit.
Our cookies can never be used by themselves to identify you or your activity as they do not contain any personal or sensitive information.
Temporary Session Cookies
These are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your device’s browser until you close the browser. They can enable better site functionality and can be used by the server to store / remember information about a user’s web page activity. A good example of why they are useful is that they let us know which shopping cart is yours as you move between pages.
These are cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser for longer than a single visit (how long depends on the lifetime of the specific cookie). Generally speaking, persistent cookies can be used to track website visits, including returning and unique visitors, and to monitor how people interact with a website.
We use temporary session cookies as follows:
