Types of cookies

Temporary cookies

Temporary cookies are sometimes called “session cookies” and are only stored on your computer until you close your browser. They help us to remember things you’ve selected on previous pages so you don’t have to re-enter information.

Persistent cookies

These are stored on your browser for a fixed period (for example, 30 days), after which they are deleted.  These cookies can help us remember preferences you may have made when returning to our website.

Categories of cookie

The cookies on our site have lots of different uses and can be categorised as; essential, functional or targeted.

Essential cookies

Essential cookies are sometimes called "strictly necessary" as without them we cannot provide many services that you need on our site. For example, essential cookies help keep you securely logged in between pages on My Account and remember items in your basket as you move around the website.

Functional cookies

Functional cookies allow us to remember any preferences you've made and we use them to improve your online experience. For example, functional cookies will store your email address and username so you don't have to re-type them every time you visit the site. They also enable you to use live online chat with our Support Team.

Targeted cookies

Targeted cookies are used by advertisers on our website. They track your browser when you visit different websites to understand what you're interested in and use this information to display more relevant adverts to you. They are sometimes called “behavioural cookies”.

These cookies are often linked to an advertising network that collects and shares this information with multiple advertisers.

You can choose to manage these cookies through your browser settings, but you may find it more effective to use the advertising network’s own opt out tool
