What are cookies and why are they used?
Cookies are small text files that are placed onto the device you are browsing upon be it computer, mobile, or a tablet. Cookies allow users to navigate sites in the way in which a site has been intended to be used and help to improve the overall user experience.

What are the cookies that we use?
Specific to our site we only use two cookies, the ‘PHPSESSID’ cookie and the ‘Session’ cookie. The PHPSESSID cookie recognises the same user is clicking from page to page, this gives us a more accurate user level data, as well as allowing you to smoothly process your order from cart to checkout.
The Session cookie will allow you to retain items in your basket if you leave the site and then return later. This also allows you to remain logged in, unless you sign out.
Another Google service, DoubleClick.net is a cookie that displays on our site. DoubleClick is used to improve advertising, and gain intelligence on a user’s interests. A common example of how this cookie would be used is to make the ads you see more relevant to you, by gathering information on what websites you have been looking at, which is why you might see an ad for a product or service that you have previously been looking at. It will also help to put you into a category, for example, your demographic and interests, which in turn will help us to improve our user experience by assessing our relevance to you. The cookie itself contains no personally identifiable information.
