What cookies are...
Why we use them...
Why we allow other sites to place cookies...
Cookies are used to provide helpful tracking information such as the numbers of visitors to our site, what device and browser they are using, how they reached us (e.g. via a search engine, via an ad, via social media etc), the pages that have been visited, the average time spent on the website and so on. We monitor this information through Google Analytics. All this information is anonymous so we know someone visited our site but not who.
Like many retailers, by tracking your browsing and actions on our website, cookies also help us with marketing. For example, they allow for you to be shown relevant adverts such as products you have shown an interest in or related items (known as behavioural marketing), be sent a newsletter featuring offers you may like or share your finds with others by using social media buttons such as "like", "pin" or "share". In our case this is currently in conjunction with (but may expand to include others) Google and Facebook for advertising, Mailchimp for newsletters and a number of social networks for sharing.
For all these functions to work, we embed code that is provided by the network concerned.
