Cookies are small data files which are placed on your computer or other devices (such as smartphones or tablets) as you browse our websites. They are used to ‘remember’ when your computer or device accesses our websites. They allow us to remember whether you are logged in to the site and to hold state information concerning the session, if needed. Cookies are essential for the effective operation of websites, in particular e-commerce sites with integrated on-line shopping. They are also used to tailor the products or services offered and advertised to you, both on our websites and elsewhere.

INFORMATION COLLECTED

Some cookies collect information about browsing and purchasing behaviour when you access our websites via the same computer or device.

WHAT ARE COOKIES USED FOR?

Cookies are used with our marketing partners to present you with appropriate offers and advertising. Cookies also allow us to work alongside our web analytics partner, Google Analytics, to see how you like to use our website, which pages or special functions you prefer and help us to make them better. We may match the data we capture through cookies with personal data that we already hold about you to better understand you. This helps us to continually improve the relevance of our promotional materials and your site experience. The main purposes for which cookies are used are: –

TURNING OFF AND DELETING COOKIES
