Cookies Policy

Our site uses cookies to keep track of how often you visit our site, the contents of your shopping basket and previous purchases. A cookie is a piece of information stored on your computer’s hard drive and which traces your movement within websites. Most browsers are automatically set to accept cookies, but you can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you turn off cookies we will not be able to track your order to enable you to purchase from our site. Nor will we be able to recognise you as a registered user.

You can find a technical explanation of cookies from Wikipedia here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_cookie

A more simple definition is that cookies are text files, saved by your browser, that perform a range of functions for you, ‘the user’ and us, ‘the site’, from remembering what’s in a user’s basket, what currency they like through to telling us how many people visited in a day, and what was purchased. They also help you share content – for example, if you are logged into Facebook, a cookie means that when you come to our site and ‘like’ something, you don’t have to log into Facebook again.

You can opt out of using cookies at any time, however this may result in a slower, less smooth experience for you. Each browser has a different method to opt out of using cookies – this resource offers information about how this can be done: http://www.aboutcookies.org/Default.aspx?page=2
