A cookie is a text file stored on your computer. Cookies store bits of information that we use to help make our website work. They can’t run any code and don’t contain viruses. No one can read our cookies except us.
There are many different types of cookies and we use them all. Those set by us are called 'first-party cookies'. Those set by our partners and suppliers are called 'third-party cookies'.
Third-party cookies enable visitors to our website to see and interact with content such as advertising provided to us by other companies. The same cookies can also help us with website analytics. Further details on third party cookies are set out later in this policy.
As with most websites, we also use 'session cookies', which exist only for the length of time that you visit our site and are deleted once you close your browser, along with 'permanent cookies' also known as 'persistent cookies' which remain stored on your browser ready for use the next time you visit our website.
These are required to help you access secure areas, such as your customer account pages. Essential cookies are critical because you can’t access these services without them.
These cookies ensure the display of handy features such as maps and videos. We use them because they help to enhance the performance and functionality of our website, and we want the time you spend on our site to be both useful and engaging.
We use analytics and customisation cookies to gather information on how the website is being used by our visitors and to discover how popular our marketing campaigns are. We also use the data we get to help customise the website for you and make the content you see as relevant as possible.
