A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
The cookies cannot be used to identify you personally and do not store any credit card information.
These cookies may be created when you visit our website, or click on links that we share with you via email or social media. Cookies may be created by us or by third party services for the purposes of targeting adverts to suit you, i.e. to display adverts more likely to match your interests.

We will use the session cookies to: keep track of you whilst you navigate the website; keep track of items in your shopping basket; prevent fraud and increase website security; We will use the persistent cookies to: enable our website to recognise you when you visit; keep track of your preferences in relation to the use of our website; and for third parties to display relevant targeted adverts to you when browsing similar sites to ours.
