Use of Cookies

Under the new European Directive 2009/136/EC (amendment to the UK’s Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations) it is now necessary for us to gain opted in consent from users visiting our website to use certain non essential “cookies” and to detail where cookies are used and for what purpose.

A cookie is a piece of data in text form, which identifies users' computers to our server and is stored on your computer by your web browser. Cookies in themselves do not identify individual users but identify only the computer used. We do not make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

The only exception under the new regulations is if the cookie (or similar technologies) are employed to perform a ‘strictly necessary’ or essential service requested by the user. A good example of this is a cookie that is used to ensure that when you have chosen the goods you wish to buy and add them to your basket or proceed through the checkout, the site ‘remembers’ what you have chosen on a previous page. We do not need to get consent for this type of activity.

Our site no longer uses non essential cookies but should that change in the future, full details will be published here and opt in will be sought where and when required.

Our site currently uses essential cookies in order to recognise if you are registered with the site and to remember the contents of your shopping basket should you choose to shop online with us. Details of these cookies can be found below.

We also monitor how our website is accessed and navigated via web analytics software, for example, which are the most popular pages and what is the most popular time of day that users visit our site. We do this to improve our site content and navigation and we do not personally identify the user in any way during this process.
