WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT:
PLEASE NOTE: No payment information, such as credit card number, is ever stored on our website or on our servers. This information is always stored separately by our payment provider.
HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and for the following reasons:
Cookies are text files stored on your computer. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
Our website software uses two cookies as follows:
PHPSESSID - Session ID, expires on exit
To enable the site to 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
SESSION - Session ID, can also contain an email address and encrypted password, expires 1yr
This is for the visitor's convenience, a copy is created 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 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.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies, most web browsers allow you to modify your settings to delete cookies if you prefer. This however will prevent the website from working properly and you may not be able to use it as intended or as you wish.
