  1. What is a cookie?
    A cookie is a piece of data that is stored on a computer, tablet or mobile when you browse the internet so that computer, tablet or mobile (‘device’) can be recognised at a later time. Cookies placed by us, our commercial partners or other third parties when you visit this website do not recognise you personally as an individual; they only recognise the device you are using. Cookies do not harm your device in any way but they do allow for several important features on the website, for instance, they allow you to request newsletters, place orders and return to pages that you have searched. They also help to keep the website secure, remember your preferences and personalise content on the website so that it is more relevant to you.

    It is your choice whether or not you have cookies placed on your device and you can easily control the placement of cookies. For specific information about managing and controlling cookies, please refer to Managing Cookies.

    Why do we have a cookies policy?
    We have implemented a cookies policy as part of our initiative to comply with recent legislation but also to make sure that we are open and clear with you about what happens when you come onto this website.


  2. Our cookies policy
    To make full use of this and many other websites when you browse the Internet, you should accept cookies as the features and functions on many websites have been developed specifically so that they only work through the use of cookies. It is important to note that cookies placed on your device by your use of this website do not store any of your personal or sensitive information (such as your name, address or payment details).

    To try to make the information on cookies in this policy clearer for you, we have split the cookies into 5 categories and explain which categories we use:

    1. Strictly necessary cookies
      These cookies are essential as they enable you to move around the website and use its features (for instance, they allow you to access secure areas of the website). Without these cookies, services you a have requested (such as access to your orders) could not be provided.

      This site does not use strictly necessary cookies.


    2. Performance cookies
      These cookies collect information about how you use the website (for instance which pages you visit most often). The information aggregated from these cookies is only ever used to improve how the website works.

      These are the performance cookies we use:



      Cookie names 






      These are web analysis cookies. Every time a user visits our website, web analytics software provided by a third party generates an anonymous analytics cookie. These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies, and if you don't, we generate new ones.

      This allows us to track how many individual unique users we have, and how often they visit the site. These cookies cannot be used to identify individuals; they are used for statistical purposes only.


    3. Functionality cookies
      These cookies remember the choices that you have made on the website (such as country and language selection) and provide enhanced, more personalised features. They may also be used to provide services you have requested (such as watching a video or commenting on a blog). These cookies cannot tell us how you move around other websites, only this website.

      These are the functionality cookies we use:



      Cookie names




      These are session cookies. Session cookies allow websites to link the actions of a user during a browser session. They may be used for a variety of remembering what a user has put in their shopping basket as they browse around a site. They could also be used for security when a user is accessing internet banking or to facilitate use of webmail. These session cookies expire after a browser session so would not be stored longer term. For this reason session cookies may sometimes be considered less privacy intrusive than persistent cookies.

    4. Advertising cookies
      These cookies are used to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement and help measure the effectiveness of an adverting campaign.

      This site does not use advertising cookies.


    5. Third party cookies (i.e. cookies that we do not place on your device)
      When you visit this website, some cookies will not be placed by us but will be placed by third parties. We only use third party performance cookies.


  3. Managing cookies

    1. What happens if I don’t allow cookies?
      If cookies aren’t enabled on your computer, tablet or mobile (‘device’), your experience on the website may be limited (for instance, you may not be able to browse all or parts of the site or download certain content).


    2. How do I disable/enable cookies?
      You can block or activate cookies by changing the setting on your internet browser. All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings so that you can accept, or refuse all or some cookies. These settings will typically be found in the ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ menu of your browser.
