    • MONITORING AND IMPROVING THE PERFORMANCE OF THE WEBSITE
  •  
    • We may use Cookies to collect information about how visitors use the site, e.g. which pages they visit most often and whether they see error messages. The information is aggregated so it does not identify individuals, and we use it only to help us improve the way the website works.

    • RESTRICTING OR BLOCKING COOKIES
  •

You will be limited to browsing, viewing and searching for products but may not be able to take additional actions on our site or log in to your account. If you'd still prefer to restrict, block or delete Cookies from this or any other website, you may do so in your internet browser. Each browser is different, so you’ll need to go to the 'help' menu on your browser and look for how to change your ‘Cookie preferences’.  The website www.aboutcookies.org contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of browsers.

 

 

    • DISABLING ADVERTISING COOKIES
  •  
    • We may engage third party advertisers to provide interest-based advertising on our website, as well as other third party sites in order to display advertising that is relevant to you. These third parties may collect information about your use of our services over time and that information may be combined with information collected on different websites and online services. If you are concerned about behaviourally targeted advertising Cookies (which serve you advertisements based on your use of this website and other websites), users based in the EU can visit the following websites to find out more and opt out of advertising Cookies:

    • Users based in the US can visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ to opt out of these third party Cookies.

    • Please Note: When you "opt-out" of receiving interest-based advertisements, this does not mean you will no longer see advertisements from us. It means that the online ads that you do see will not be tailored for you based on your particular interests. We may still collect information about you for any purpose permitted under the Policy, including for analytics.

    • YOUR PRIVACY AND SHARED COMPUTERS
