Cookies and targeted advertising

Cookies are small computer files that act as an identification card for your computer.  They are widely used to make websites work, or to work more efficiently.  When you visit our site, unique cookies are served to your browser.  The purpose of these cookies is to distinguish your browser from other browsers that visit our site so that we can provide you with enhanced and sometimes more personalised website functionality and to enable us to improve our website offering.  Cookies may remain on your hard drive after you leave our website.

Cookies may be served to your browser either directly by us (these are called first party cookies) or by third parties acting on our behalf (these are called third party cookies).  First party cookies enable us to recognise you when you come back to our site and remember the products you place in your shopping cart, both while you are viewing other areas on our website and when you return to our site.  We also use third party cookies (including cookies served by Google, Inc. for its Google Analytics service) to gather aggregate usage information about the numbers and frequency of visitors to our website and individual pages of our website, in order to improve the appearance and usability of the website. For further details about how Google uses and protects information collected for its Google Analytics service, please visit http://www.google.co.uk/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html.   Alternatively, if you prefer to opt-out of tracking by these third parties for analytics purposes, please visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout (Google Analytics) and http://www.coremetrics.com/company/privacy.php#optout (Coremetrics Analytics) respectively.

We also use third party digital advertising agencies (along with their ad serving technology partners and partnered networks of publishers) to serve third party cookies through our website.  Third party cookies enable our third party digital advertising agencies to collect information about your activities across our website and other websites that have partnered with them so that they can provide you with customized banner ads that are tailored to your specific interests.  However, these cookies do not collect information that enables you to be identified as an individual, nor do we combine information collected through these cookies with other personal information about you.
