What are cookies, local storage, tracking beacons and pixels?

When you visit pages on our website, your web browser will store small text files on your computer, smart phone device, etc. known as cookies, or other times in local storage (also known as DOM storage). These files are used to store information about your visit to the site.

Our website also uses tracking beacons / pixels. These are very small parts of the web page which work with cookies and local storage to share information with our business affiliates and analytical partners.

First party cookies - created and used by our website, and some business affiliates and analytical partners.

Third party cookies - created and used by our business affiliates and analytical partners from within our site.

Session cookies - only last during your visit to our site. They are deleted when your browser is closed. An example is for maintaining shopping basket content during your visit.

Permanent cookies - stored on your device after your visit. They are deleted when you delete cookies, or after their "expiry" date, which may vary from a few days to months depending on the usefulness of their information. An example is for retrieving your shopping basket from a recent site visit.

"Flash® cookies" - used to store similar information, but are not affected by the cookie settings on your web browser. We do not use Flash® cookies.

Local storage - used to store similar information as cookies. Like cookies, this may be session or 'permanent'. Similar to session cookies, session local storage is deleted when you close your browser. 'Permanent' local storage is deleted in various ways depending on your browser.

Why use cookies and tracking?

These help your site visit to run smoothly (e.g. remembering your shopping basket and account sign-in status), and help us understand how the website is performing. They also enable us and our business partners to carry out and measure the success of marketing campaigns, and place more relevant advertisements for our goods and services here and on other websites you visit.

What cookies and information is used, and by whom?
