How we use cookies

Cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

We have classified the cookies used on our website, or which may be dropped by trusted third parties via our website, using the classification developed by the International Chamber of Commerce UK. This is to help give you more information about which cookies are used, why, and the functionality that will be lost if you choose not to allow them on your computer, mobile or other device.

  • Strictly necessary cookies - these cookies enable functions and services visitors have specifically requested and are required to allow you to navigate around the website. No consent is required for these types of cookie as they are strictly necessary. In the absence of these cookies, services such as shopping baskets would not function.

  • Performance cookies - these cookies gather anonymous information on the pages visited on the website or partner pages to enhance how our website works. They do not collect any information that can be used to identify you as a visitor. In using the website, you agree that we can use these types of cookies on your computer, mobile or other device. Cookies such as these are used to collect information about visitor numbers and other statistical data. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor and everything is aggregated and anonymous.

  • Advertising Cookies - We use these cookies to help us and our advertisers select which adverts you see and to help ensure that adverts directed to you are relevant to you and your interests. They also remember that you have visited our website and are used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement and help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns.

  • Targeting or Tracking Cookies - These cookies are placed by online behavioural advertising networks with our permission. They monitor and record your activity across a number of websites within a network and are used to deliver adverts which are relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help to measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. These cookies remember that you have visited a website and this information (together with the other information collected) is shared with other organisations such as advertisers in the advertising network to enable them to create a profile of your interests. Quite often targeting cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisations.
