A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
There are two main kinds of cookies: “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies. Session cookies only last for the duration of users using the website and are deleted from your computer when you close your browser, whereas persistent cookies outlast user sessions and remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach their expiry date.
Cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. They do not contain any information that personally identifies you, and a cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Many web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
We use persistent cookies on this website to provide links to social network sharing services, to present you with information you may have left on your last visit and to update you on our most popular content. However we never collect, transmit or store any information about credit or debit cards you may have used on a previous purchase. Any billing address information you may have entered when you register or purchase is for administration purposes only. It is used to make your purchasing experience less onerous (for example, to pre-fill the relevant fields in our card processing partner's payment form) - you can override this information during the checkout process where you enter your card details on Worlfpay's secure payment site. It is also used for certain customers who already have an account with us and who wish to pay using purchase orders.
We do not use third party cookies.
