What are Cookies?

Cookies are tiny informational files stored on your computer when you visit certain web pages – well, most web pages, actually! They enable a website to recognize you when you return to the site, so you can pick up where you left off. For example, cookies allow you to customize views, create and store Favourites Lists, retrieve Past Order information etc. Cookies can’t harm your computer, but are sometimes used unscrupulously for online marketing purposes. This has prompted recent legislation requiring websites to declare whether they use cookies, and in what manner. We are only too happy to comply. Please click the tab above to see our cookie Policy.

Note that you can adjust the settings on your Web Browser to either allow or block cookies. See Managing Cookies Tab above.

We never store any personally identifiable information such as credit card details, telephone numbers, or addresses as cookies, and we never sell information about your page viewing to external marketing companies (though we recommend you check the Cookie policy of the search engine you are using).
