What are Cookies?

Cookies are little files created by websites to help them store information about your visit on your computer. They act as a kind of short term memory.

Most websites use cookies to some extent, whether it is to store the contents of your shopping cart or to keep you logged in.

New UK regulations coming into force in May 2012 require that you get a say whether or not a website can create these cookies.

Why do we use cookies?

Cookies are used on this website for multiple reasons, but the primary use is in the shopping cart area of the website where they are used to simply remember what is in your basket. In addition to this, we also use cookies so that promoters can remain logged in to the website. Both of these functions are essential to the normal running of the website.

Google Analytics

We also use cookies to help us analyse how people are using our website, in order for us to deduce what content is working and what needs to be changed. To do this we use a free analytics tool provided by Google (Google Analytics).

The information gathered by these cookies is totally anonymous and is not shared with any third party organisations, including Google themselves. This information cannot be used for promotional, advertising or customisational purposes.

If you would rather that analytical cookies were disabled on this (and any other website that you visit) you can download and install a free plugin for your browser here.


Finally, on some parts of the website we share affiliate links with Amazon so that Amazon can credit us with the referral to their website. Although this system uses cookies, no personal information or tracking information about you is stored or passed along. This is not used for advertising purposes.
