From May 2011 a new privacy directive came into effect across the EU. The resulting new law requires that websites ask visitors for consent to use web cookies. Cookies are an extremely common technology that helps websites remember information about you such as your preferences as you move between pages or even to track the number of visitors to our website. The overreaching aim for the directive is to inform you that we are committed to respecting the privacy rights of every visitor to our website and to reassure you that we do not use cookies to store personal information about you. As part of this, we aim to provide you full transparency as to which cookies are being set and why they are necessary.


Cookies are small encrypted text files dropped on your computer when you visit websites via your browsers. Our use of cookies is to primarily help enhance your user experience and improve the efficiency of our website. In order to make purchases on our website and for an optimal user experience, you will need to enable cookies on your computer, tablet or mobile phone.


We use cookies to collect contextual information about your visit to the site to enhance the functionality of site and the user experience.

We Use Cookies to:
  • Help make the website work and deliver services that the website visitor expects, like navigating around web pages or accessing secure areas of the website. These are process-based cookies. Without these cookies, the website cannot function properly, and therefore if you do not accept usage of these, you will not be able to use the site.
  • Provide us with generalised analytics data relating to site usage. We use Google Analytics. Google Analytics helps website and app owners to understand how their visitors engage with their properties. It uses a set of cookies to collect information and report website usage statistics without personally identifying individual visitors. The main cookie used by Google Analytics is the ‘__ga’ cookie.

If you are concerned about cookies tracking you online, you may wish to consider the following methods to protect yourself:

  • 1. Activate the ‘Do Not Track’ feature in your browser. This can generally be enabled in the browser preferences
  • 2. Block third-party cookies in your browser preferences (remember to allow first-party cookies, which are provided directly by the website you are browsing)
