Cookie Notice

Our websites uses cookies. A cookie improves browsing experiences and provides data on visitor numbers.

First of all, a cookie is a snippet of text that is sent from the website server, which is then stored on a web browser. Cookies therefore do lots of different jobs such as letting you navigate between pages efficiently and storing preferences. Consequently improving user experience towards any given website. As a result, it makes the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. Likewise, if a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site and therefore hinder or slow down your visit.

For the reason that each cookie is unique to each web browser – only that server therefore will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie/file. It will certainly contain some anonymous information such as a unique ID and site name along with some digits and numbers. It also allows a website to remember such things as unique details or what’s in your shopping basket for example.
