Use of Cookies

Cookies are small text files that may be stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit our website. Snippets of text information is used to gather information on the user of the site for various purposes, most people think of them being used for advertising, however most are used to make the shopping cart work!  (1st Party) 
The use of '1st party cookies' on our website is limited and are only there to enable the shopping cart to operate, navigate between pages and recognise you as a potential shopper and what is or has been in your basket. these are as follows:
(Contains a PHP "session ID", expires when the browser is closed)

(Contains a PHP "session ID", can also contain an email address and encrypted password, expires after one year)

The "PHPSESSID" cookie is required so that the site can recognise the same user clicking from page to page. Without it, every page would be treated as the first visit to the site, and anything added to the shopping basket would be instantly forgotten. Online shopping would, therefore, be impossible.

The "session" cookie is intended for the user's convenience, the site creates this with a copy of the initial session ID so that they can be classed as "returning" and the contents of their shopping basket will still be available. If the user signs in with an email address and password, these login details are are also saved so that they can remain logged in when returning (the password is encrypted). If the user signs out, their login details are removed from the cookie.

3rd party cookies - these are created outside of our control, again to track movement from one site to another - such as Facebook or twitter - without these people cannot like or unlike products amongst other things. 

We use Google Analytics, which enable us to  see what pages you use so we can make the site more useful for the visitor. these are also 3rd party cookies.

3rd party cookies can be limited and controlled through your own browser settings.

We hope this clarifies things a little and rest assured we are not spying on you!
