Website cookies

Our aim is to continually improve the experience you have when you visit our website. As part of this process, we use cookies. Cookies are small text files containing information about your browsing session (e.g. which pages you visited), which are located in your browser directory.

We use different types of cookies and each has a specific function. Some cookies are essential to the working of the website and allow you to navigate easily from page to page and perform certain functions (e.g. making a purchase). Other nonessential cookies allow us to analyse how you use our site, which enables us to make decisions about how best to improve the website design and functionality to fit your future needs.

In some cases, we use cookies to remember a selection you have made (e.g. your location), which saves you having to make that selection again if you return to the site. Other cookies allow our partners to see how many visitors click from their website to our website, and subsequently allow us to select the best partners to work with.

All data collected using a cookie will be anonymous and will not hold specific knowledge of who a visitor is.
