However, some cookies are fundamental to the operation of the site, allowing you to navigate your way through it, add products to your basket and indeed to purchase them.
Other cookies help us measure and analyse how you use the website to improve your shopping experience and the overall performance of the website.
Others can remember preferences to save you time when you visit the site. And others help us do things like send you emails to remind you that you have items still in your basket or to deliver adverts that are relevant to you.
Can I delete or block cookies?
If you do want to delete or block cookies, you can do so by altering the settings on your browser (via the Settings menu). However, it may well mean that you are unable to use the website.
It’s also worth noting that deleting cookies won’t stop you being shown adverts, but it will mean those adverts aren’t customised or tailored to your online behaviour.
So, by using our site, you are agreeing to the cookies (such as the ones outlined above) being placed on your device.
However, a lot of these cookies – so-called “session” cookies – will be automatically deleted at the end of each session, normally when you close the browser or turn off the device.
Others – “persistent” cookies - will have a time limit and will be deleted when they reach their expiry date or when your browser deletes them.
Where can I find out more about cookies?
You are very welcome to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to answer any questions you may have.
There are also a number of useful websites that you may want to visit to find out more.
The BBC’s Web Wise is a bit out of date, but is not a bad place to start.
All About Cookies is exactly what its name suggests.
And Your Online Choices is a good guide to online behavioural advertising in general and will show you how to opt out.
