Last updated: 6th September 2021

What are Cookies?

Cookies and other similar tracking technologies are small text files or code placed on your device (e.g. computer, smartphone or other electronic device) when you use our website or app or view a message. Cookies allow a website or app to recognise a particular device.

Our use of Cookies

We use cookies and other similar tracking technologies such as web beacons and single-pixel gifs on our website. These help us recognise you and your device and store some information about your preferences or past actions.

For example, we may monitor how many times you visit our website, which pages you go to, traffic data, location data and the originating domain name of your internet service provider. This information helps us to build a profile of our users. Some of this data will be aggregated or statistical, which means that we will not be able to identify you individually.

You can set your browser not to accept cookies and our websites below tell you how to remove cookies from your browser. However, some of our website features may not function as a result.

For further information on our use of cookies and other similar tracking technologies, including a detailed list of your information which we and others may collect through cookies, please see below.

What we use cookies for

We use cookies and other similar tracking technologies to:

  • recognise you whenever you visit our website (this speeds up your access to our website as you do not have to log in each time);
  • obtain information about your preferences and use of our website;
  • keep track of the items stored in your shopping basket and take you through the checkout process;
  • carry out research and statistical analysis to help improve our content and services and to help us better understand our users’ requirements;
  • target our marketing and advertising campaigns and those of our affiliates more effectively by providing interest-based advertisements that are personalised to your interests; and
  • make your online experience more efficient and enjoyable.

Types of cookies

The cookies we place on your device fall into the following categories:

  • Session cookies - these allow our website to link your actions during a particular browser session. These expire each time you close your browser and do not remain on your device afterwards.
  • Persistent cookies - these are stored on your device in between browser sessions. These allow your preferences or actions across our website to be remembered. These will remain on your device until they expire, or you delete them from your cache.
  • Strictly necessary cookies - these cookies are essential for you to be able to navigate our website and use its features. Without these cookies, the services you have asked for could not be provided.
  • Performance cookies - these cookies collect information about how you use our website, e.g. which pages you go to most often. These cookies do not collect personally identifiable information about you. All information collected by these cookies is aggregated and anonymous, and is only used to improve how our website works.
  • Functionality cookies - these cookies allow our website to remember the choices you make (such as your username, language, last action and search preferences) and provide enhanced, more personal features. The information collected by these cookies is anonymous and cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
  • Targeting cookies - also known as advertising cookies, these cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement on our website and help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with our website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers.
