What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your browser by websites that you visit. They can do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your user experience. They can also help to ensure that the adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
A cookie can fall in one of the following categories:
Essential cookies - these cookies are required for the website to function to allow you to shop, and might include determining if a user can access a secured area of the website, adding products to your shopping basket and allowing the website to identify and remember what products you have added to your shopping basket. Without these cookies, you will be unable to use our Site.
Marketing & Social cookies - these cookies are used to deliver advertising that is more relevant to you and your interests. They may also be used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement and measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. Advertising networks usually place them with the website operator’s permission. Social media pixel cookies are used to personalise any advertising we do on social media channels, such as Facebook, to make our advertising more relevant.
Analytical cookies - these cookies help the website operator understand how its website performs, how visitors interact with the site, and whether there may be technical issues. This storage type usually doesn’t collect information that identifies a visitor.
Personalisation cookies - these cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language, or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For example, a website may provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing data about your current location.
Cookies can also be categorised as persistent or session cookies, in terms of their retention period:
Persistent cookies - these cookies remain on a user's device for the period specified in the cookie. They are activated each time the user visits the website that created that particular cookie. These cookies can remain on a user’s device for a period that ranges between a number of days and a number of months, or can be dropped on the device permanently.
Session cookies - these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
Storage preferencesWhen you visit websites, they may store or retrieve data in your browser. This storage is often necessary for the basic functionality of the website. The storage may be used for marketing, analytics, and personalisation of the site, such as storing your preferences. Privacy is important to us, so you have the option of disabling certain types of storage that may not be necessary for the basic functioning of the website. Blocking categories may impact your experience on the website.
