What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are collected by your browser from websites you visit which are then stored on your device. Cookies are widely used in order to enable website functionality and make sites work more efficiently.

Each cookie is a unique tag which allows us to keep track of visitor numbers, see how our website is used and, in some instances, remember a user (which, for example, means the contents of a shopping basket won’t disappear when you move from one part of our online shop to another). Cookies also help advertisers provide you with relevant marketing materials.
