Cookies are small text files that web servers send to a computer. Typically they contain the name of the website and a unique identifier. When you request a page from the server, your browser sends the cookie back to the server.
We use analytics cookies to track visitor information. We do that to help us measure the performance of features on this site and plan for the future.
Because this site is run on a content delivery network, a cookie is set by CloudFare. The cookie is used to identify individual clients behind a shared IP address. And it applies security settings on a per-client basis. It does not correspond to any user ID in the web application and does not store any personally identifiable information.

Without cookies we would not know which products have been added to the basket. Nor would we know which customer had added them to their basket. And we would not know whether you are a visitor or a customer with an account who has logged in. We would also not be able to remember your search settings. Equally importantly, we would not know whether you have accepted the terms and conditions during checkout. In other words, this site could not work to provide our services.
You can control cookies in your web browser. Depending on the browser (Safari, Firefox, etc.) this may be accessed from the tools, settings, or preferences tabs.
Important: Using This Site
If you do not agree to cookies do not use this site. That is because, as explained above, our services rely on cookies to function properly.
