Cookies are small text files that are placed by websites on your device (computer, tablet or phone). They are used to store information that may be needed while browsing the website, or on a future visit. This may include personal data, or anonymous information such as previously visited pages or items placed in your shopping basket.

Cookies expire automatically after a certain time. Some, called Session Cookies, are deleted when you close your web browser. Others, called Persistent Cookies, may expire after several hours, days or longer. Typically these are used to remember your preferences for future visits to a website. You can delete cookies manually whenever you wish via your browser.

By changing your browser settings you can refuse to accept 'third party' cookies, which are usually not essential. You can also set your browser to block all cookies, but this will prevent this website and many others from working properly and you will not be able to make purchases online.
