What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files that are created by your browser and placed on your computer or browsing device, at the request of websites that you visit. Cookies allow websites to recognise your computer or web browser. They can help to analyse which products or parts of a website you looked at, and how long for.
Websites may also use web beacons or 'tags' to do a similar job. Like cookies, web beacons are used to collect non-personal information about the way you browse websites. An example of this could be remembering what products you placed in your shopping basket last time you visited.
A web beacon is a transparent graphic image that is placed on a website or in an email and is used to see when that web page or email has been displayed.
•Cookies and web beacons are not able to retrieve any information from your computer that you have not already given to a website.
•Cookies and web beacons are not able to be used to put malware or viruses on your computer.
•Cookies and web beacons are not able to be used to control the functionality or settings of your computer or web browsing device.
Cookies allow us to present you with relevant products and services that are based on the way that you want to use our website, providing you with an enhanced browsing and shopping experience.
For example, cookies allow us to remember what products you placed in your shopping basket, whether you were logged in or not, and what language you were using to read the site last time you visited.
Cookies and web beacons allow us to work alongside our web analytics partner, Google, to see how our customers like to use our websites and which pages or special functions they prefer. This helps us to continually improve our service.
