Cookie Use Policy

What are cookies ?

A cookie is a small piece of data or message that is sent from a website’s server to your web browser and is then stored on your hard drive. They are generally used to improve your user experience by – for example – remembering what’s in your online shopping basket or keeping you logged in on a website as you navigate from one page to another. Cookies can’t read data off your hard drive or other cookie files, and do not damage your system.

How we use cookies

The first party cookies we use allow us to monitor the performance of our website (Google Analytics) and to manage the shopping basket (WooCommerce).

Third party cookies are used to process payments (PayPal).

How to change your cookies

The cookies to manage the shopping basket and payments are strictly necessary for the website to function correctly and so cannot be disabled through the website.

You can prevent the Google Analytics cookies from being set by not accepting cookies from the popup that appeared when you first visited the site. If you wish to show this popup so you can change your decision then click this link – Reset Cookies – and then revisit the home page.
