3. How do we use cookies?

Cookies may track things such as how often you visit the site, and how long you spend on the site and the pages that you visit, so we can continue to produce engaging content. From time to time we test new features and make subtle changes to the way that the site is delivered. When we are still testing new features, these cookies may be used to ensure that you receive a consistent experience whilst on the site whilst ensuring we understand which optimisations our users appreciate the most.

As we sell products, it's important for us to understand statistics about how many of the visitors to our site actually make a purchase and, as such, this is the kind of data that these cookies will track. This is important to you as it means that we can accurately make business predictions that allow us to monitor our advertising and product costs to ensure the best possible price.

4. Disabling Cookies

You may delete cookies already on your computer by consulting the instructions for your file management software. You can also disable future cookies by adjusting the settings on your browser (see your browser Help for how to do this).

Disabling cookies may prevent or impair your ability to access and fully make use of certain functionalities and features of this Site, and possibly many other websites that you visit.

5. Third Party Cookies
