From our special offers and event promotions to sound and video shown on our website, the main aim of this site is to be informative, interesting and helpful. We are keen to find out what you like and dislike, and for this purpose, your feedback plays a key role in helping us improve our site. We use a number of techniques to follow your use of the site and provide you with a customised experience. The main and best-known technique is by using what are known as ‘cookies’.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that a website will put on your device, which in turn sends information back to the website. They cannot affect your device, but they do collect information that can be used to enhance the site. For example, a cookie can remember the items that you have placed in a shopping basket, or it can ensure you get the offer you requested. These are known as ‘session’ cookies, which expire as soon as you leave the site.
Other cookies can tell us if you come back. These are ‘persistent cookies’, which often expire after a period of time. They will remain on your device until you delete them. We use them to help customise the site – to do things such as display relevant information based on your visit.
Some cookies enable sites to work, while others help us learn about what people are browsing for.
Please be assured that the cookies we use do not store any personal details. Here are the main types of cookies and what they do:
1) Strictly necessary
In brief: These cookies enable you to get the information or service you’ve asked for. They’re essential – without them, some services may not work.
For example, these cookies enable you to use shopping baskets, which remember your choices and enable you to buy.
2) Performance cookies
In brief: These cookies collect information about the pages you visit, where you go most often and whether you see error messages. The information is only used to ensure a website works well.
For example, We gather information to diagnose problems and issues. We then use it to make improvements such as improving the page loading speed of our site and fix errors that might have directed you to the wrong page of our site or a page that no longer exists.
3) Functional cookies
In brief: These cookies remember choices you’ve made to personalise the site. They may remember where you are so you can get tailored information, or remember changes you have made to help you browse, such as increasing the text size.
For example: If you ask for products based on your location, we sometimes store a cookie so that next time you visit you won’t have to tell us again.

We do not make and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
