What are cookies?
A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.
What cookies do we use?
- Essential cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our site. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our site, use a shopping basket or make use of e-billing services.
- Analytical cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our site when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our site works by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. For example, we might be able to see that lots of people visit our “sizing advice” section but then leave our site immediately afterwards. In this case, we might try to put additional information in this section about fitting or provide clearer links back out to the rest of our site.
- Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our site. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences. For example, your choice of language or region.
- Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our site, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our site and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.
