 3.      How Does Our Site Use Cookies?

Our Site comprises public areas and private areas which operate as two distinctly separate and segregated systems, and which perform different functions.

Users who access the public areas of Our Site, which are hosted in WordPress, may receive certain third-party Cookies on their computer or device. Third-party Cookies are those placed by websites, services, and/or parties other than us. Third-party Cookies are used on the public areas of Our Site for anonymous statistical analysis and marketing purposes. For more details, please refer to section 4 below.

 

Users who access the private areas of Our Site will be required to log in to access these areas. The private areas of Our Site are segregated from and operate on a completely independent system to the public areas of Our Site. We do not employ third-party cookies on the private areas of Our Site at present. Should this change, this notification will be updated, and you will be notified accordingly.

 

We use such Cookies to facilitate and improve your experience of Our Site and to provide and improve Our products and / or services. We have carefully chosen these Cookies and have taken steps to ensure that your privacy and personal data is protected and respected at all times. 

 

All Cookies used by and on Our Site are used in accordance with current Cookie Law. We may use some or all of the following types of Cookie:

 

Strictly Necessary Cookies

A Cookie falls into this category if it is essential to the operation of Our Site, supporting functions such as logging in, your shopping basket, and payment transactions.

 

Analytics Cookies

It is important for Us to understand how you use Our Site, for example, how efficiently you are able to navigate around it, and what features you use. Analytics Cookies enable us to gather this information, helping Us to improve Our Site and your experience of it.

 

Functionality Cookies

Functionality Cookies enable Us to provide additional functions to you on Our Site such as personalisation and remembering your saved preferences. Some functionality Cookies may also be strictly necessary Cookies, but not all necessarily fall into that category.

 

Targeting Cookies

It is important for Us to know when and how often you visit Our Site, and which parts of it you have used (including which pages you have visited and which links you have visited). As with analytics Cookies, this information helps us to better understand you and, in turn, to make Our Site and advertising more relevant to your interests. Some information gathered by targeting Cookies may also be shared with third parties.

 

Third-Party Cookies

Third-party Cookies are not placed by Us; instead, they are placed by third parties that provide services to Us and/or to you. Third-party Cookies may be used by advertising services to serve up tailored advertising to you on Our Site, or by third parties providing analytics services to Us (these Cookies will work in the same way as analytics Cookies described above).

Any of the above types of Cookie may be a persistent Cookie. Persistent Cookies are those which remain on your computer or device for a predetermined period and are activated each time you visit Our Site.
