What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is downloaded on to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are used by many websites and help us to recognise you and your device and store some information about your preferences or past actions. For example, we may monitor which pages you go to, traffic data, location data and the originating domain name of your internet service provider, remembering your preferences, recording what you have put in your shopping basket, and counting the number of people looking at a website. This information helps us to build a profile of our users. Some of this data will be aggregated or statistical, which means that we will not be able to identify you individually.

For further information on cookies generally, including how to control and manage them, visit the guidance on cookies published by the UK Information Commissioner’s Office, or

How we use cookies

When you visit our website or receive consented email marketing from us or our approved partner, we collect usage information to identify which pages are being visited. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic, our Site's effectiveness and to improve your experience. We use tracking technologies including cookies for this process. We don't collect data (other than provided by you) that can identify you, a visitor or an individual or send targeted advertising.

We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes.

Overall, 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. You will be informed that the site uses cookies via a message banner at the top of the webpage. You can remove this banner by clicking the "I understand" button, to confirm this. The banner will return as a reminder in 1 month or whenever you clear your browser data.

You can withdraw any consent to the use of cookies or manage any other cookie preferences by clicking on the browser settings. You can then customise your cookie settings by clicking the relevant boxes and using the sliders. It may be necessary to refresh the page for the updated settings to take effect.

Most 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 and you may lose some of the functionality of our website.

Third party access to the cookies

The cookies we use will only be accessed by us and those third parties named in the table below for the purposes referred to in this cookie policy. Those cookies will not be accessed by any other third party.

We do have relationships with carefully-selected and monitored suppliers who may also set cookies during your visit to be used for re-marketing purposes - in other words to show you different products and services based on what you appear to be interested in.
