Cookies and How We Use Them
Cookies are small text files that our website and sometimes emails place in your computer to ensure that your experience of our offerings is as effective as possible. They remember any options you have chosen for example and your password or particular interests. They also enable us to track visitors' usage of our site so that we can continuously improve it. There's nothing mysterious about them and they do not collect personal data.
Like pretty much all website owners we have always operated cookies and you have had the benefit of using them. EU regulations now require us to inform you of what they are and give you the option to prohibit them if you wish. Cookies are used on this shopping site to keep track of the contents of your shopping cart, for account log in purposes, to store delivery addresses if the address book is used.
