A cookie is information (a small text file) that a site saves to your computer using your web browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox etc). Cookies make the personalisation of your Web experiences possible. For example, a cookie may allow sites to record your browsing activities - like what pages and content you've looked at, when you visited, and whether you clicked on an ad. Cookies help sites remember items in your shopping cart, your log-in name and by doing so look to provide a better experience for every user while browsing the web.
Please note that cookies can't harm your computer. We don't store personally identifiable information (PII) such as credit card details in cookies we create, but we do use encrypted information gathered from them to help improve your experience of the site. For example, they help us to identify and resolve errors, or to determine relevant related products to show you when you're browsing.

We work with carefully-selected and monitored suppliers who may also set cookies during your visit to be used for remarketing purposes - in other words to show you different products and services based on what you appear to be interested in.
