INFORMATION WE COLLECT ONLINE: Cookies & Similar Technologies

We use Cookies on this website. A 'Cookie' is a file in your web browser that enables us to recognise your computer when you visit the site and make using our website quicker and easier (e.g. login fields may be pre- filled with your email address). Cookies are also essential to the functioning of certain parts of the site and we use them to collect information about how the site is used, such as how many people visit and return and what products are being viewed. We may also use Cookies for marketing and to give you a more personalised experience on our website. For a complete list of the cookies we use and how we use them, please see the table further down this page.

Making our Website work:

Certain Cookies are essential so that you can move around the site and log in to your Account. Without them you would be unable to take certain actions on our website or access your account.

Monitoring & 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.

 

Enabling the features of the website:

We may use Cookies that allow our website to remember choices you have made, such as your user name, and help us provide you with a better, more personal experience. For example, they may allow you to watch a video clip, comment on a blog or add a product review.

 

Marketing and advertising:

We may use Cookies to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you, as well as to limit the number of times you see a particular advertisement and to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. The Cookies remember that you have visited a website and this information may then be shared with other organisations for advertising purposes.

Restricting and blocking cookies:

As you will have seen in ‘How We Use Cookies’ above, some parts of our website need Cookies in order to function correctly. By default, Cookies should be enabled on your computer or device, and although you can ‘disable’ them in your browser this will affect your experience on the website. 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:

http://youronlinechoices.eu/
http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/

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

If you log in to the website from a shared computer, such as in an internet cafe or from a colleague’s computer at work, Cookies may cause your email address to display in the login field to anyone who uses the site on that computer after you. You can avoid this by clearing the Cookies stored by the web browser. The option to do this can normally be found within your browser ‘tools’ preferences.
