What type of Cookies do we use?
The following types of Cookies are set when you access our Websites:
1. Necessary Cookies
These cookies are essential for the Websites to operate. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, like shopping baskets, cannot be provided.

4. Targeting Cookies
These cookies collect information about your browsing habits (such as products you have purchased or content you have engaged with) as well as information about your browser, device and IP address. We use this information to display more relevant content and advertisements to you, as well as to limit the number of times you see an advertisement and measure the effectiveness of a campaign.
