Can I withdraw my consent?
If you wish to withdraw your consent at any time, you will need to delete your cookies using your internet browser settings and disable cookies via your browser settings or individually. Please note that disabling cookies will affect the functionality of our site and may prevent you from being able to access certain features.
Types of cookie
• First and third-party cookies: whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the domain placing the cookie. First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time (in other words, cookies placed on our website). Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by another website visited by you.
• Persistent cookies: these cookies remain on your device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that you visit the website that created that particular cookie.
• Session cookies: these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
What cookies do we use and why?
• ‘Strictly Necessary’ cookies let you move around the website and use essential features like secure areas and shopping baskets. Without these cookies, we cannot provide the requested services. We use these Strictly Necessary cookies to:
• Identify you as being logged in to our site and to authenticate you
• Make sure you connect to the right service on our website when we make any changes to the way the site works
• To add any purchases to your shopping cart and remember the product you have added within a browsing session when you get to the checkout page

• For security purposes
Accepting these cookies is a condition of using the site, so if you prevent these cookies we can’t guarantee how the site or the security on our site will perform during your visit.
• ‘Performance’ cookies collect information about how you use our website, for example, which pages you visit and if you experience any errors. These cookies do not collect any information that could identify you and are only used to help us improve how our site works, understand what interests our users and measure the effectiveness of our advertising. We use performance cookies to:
• Carry out web analytics, which provides statistics on how our website is used

• Obtain data on the number of visitors to our website that have viewed a product or service
• Help us improve the website by measuring any errors that occur
• Test different designs for the site
Some of our performance cookies are managed for us by third parties. We do not allow the third party to use the cookies for any purpose other than those listed above.
By using our website, or expressing your consent as otherwise required by applicable law, you accept the use of ‘Performance’ cookies. Accepting these cookies is a condition of using the website, so if you prevent them we cannot guarantee how our site will perform for you.
• ‘Functionality’ cookies are used to provide services or to remember settings to improve your visit. We use ‘Functionality’ cookies for such purposes as:
• Remembering settings you’ve applied such as layout, text size, preferences and colours
• Remembering if we’ve already asked you if you want to fill in a survey
• Remembering if you have engaged with a particular component or product list on the website so that we don’t show it again
• Show you when you’re logged in to the site
• To provide and show embedded video content
Some of these cookies are managed for us by third parties. We do not allow the third party to use the cookies for any purpose other than those listed above.
• ‘Targeting’ cookies are used to track your visit to our site and other websites, including the pages you have visited and the links you have followed, which allows third parties to display targeted ads to you on the websites you visit. We and our third-party service providers use Targeting cookies to:
• Link to social networks like Facebook and LinkedIn that may subsequently use information about your visit to our website in order to provide advertising or other offers that may be of interest to you when you visit other websites
• Provide third parties with information on your visit so that they can present you with advertisements or other offers that may be of interest to you
If you are in the EU, you may opt-out of certain third-party cookies that we and other websites may use for targeting through http://www.youronlinechoices.eu or www.aboutads.info.
Opting out of one or more ad networks only means that those particular members no longer will deliver targeted content or ads to you. It does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content or ads on our websites or other third-party websites. If your browser is configured to reject cookies when you visit one of the above referenced opt-out pages, and you later erase your cookies, use a different computer or change web browsers, your preference may no longer be active. Since all of these cookies are managed by third parties, you should refer to the third parties’ own website privacy notifications and policies for further information.

Turning cookies off
It may be that your concerns about cookies relate to what’s known as ‘spyware’. However, rather than switch off cookies in your browser, which is quite a radical step, you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same goal by automatically deleting cookies considered to be unnecessarily invasive. There are literally dozens of anti-virus software programs out there and you can find a list of some of them here.
