Web browser cookies
The two cookies that are used within our software management system are as follows:
PHPSESSID - Contains a PHP "session ID", expires when the browser is closed
The "PHPSESSID" cookie is required so that the site can recognise the same user clicking from page to page. Without it, every page would be treated as the first visit to the site, and anything added to the shopping basket would be instantly forgotten. Online shopping would, therefore, be impossible.
Session - Contains a PHP "session ID", can also contain an email address and encrypted password, expires after one year
The "session" cookie is intended for the user's convenience, our website softward creates this with a copy of the initial session ID so that they can be classed as "returning" and the contents of their shopping basket will still be available. If the user signs in with an email address and password, these login details are are also saved so that they can remain logged in when returning (the password is encrypted). If the user signs out, their login details are removed from the cookie.
We use Google Analytics and Adsense Cookies to collect from site users information, including some demographic and interest information. These data may be used for marketing and re-marketing purposes using services provided by Google Inc. These services may include Adwords, Adsense and doubleclick branded services, information on how Google uses personal data can be found here. Personal data will be used for personalisation of ads and cookies may be used for personalised and non-personalised advertising. Google users can control the ads they see on Google services, including Customer Match ads, in their Google Ads Settings.

Sharing your personal information
We do not sell, trade, or rent Users personal identification information to others. We may share generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any personal identification information regarding visitors and users with our business partners, trusted affiliates and advertisers for the purposes outlined above. We may use third party service providers to help us operate our business and the Site or administer activities on our behalf, such as sending out newsletters or surveys. We may share your personal information (e.g. email addresses so that we can contact you if you sign up to our email list) with these third parties for those limited purposes provided that you have given us your permission. We share customer data with third parties, such as Google, to perform services (e.g. advertising) on our behalf; by clicking "OK" on our Cookie and Privacy popup you are agreeing to this.
Third party websites
Users may find content on our Site that link to the sites and services of our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors and other third parties. We do not control the content or links that appear on these sites and are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from our Site. In addition, these sites or services, including their content and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies. Browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites which have a link to our Site, is subject to that website's own terms and policies.
Social Media Plugins on the Site
The social media share buttons, which can be found on some Site pages, and the Facebook share for discount button, only transmit data once they have been clicked. Therefore, the button only becomes active once a customer has clicked on it and at this point they will be using the social media's website. The only data the social media's servers receive from this Site is referral information from the page, such a product title and image. No personal data is transmitted.
The Facebook login feature works in a similar way, and no personal information is transmitted to Facebook. However, once a customer has clicked on the button, any data that is gathered from the Facebook account, such as name and Facebook ID, will be stored within their User Account. This can be deleted, if requested.
Your acceptance of these terms
By using this Site, you signify your acceptance of this policy and terms of service. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our Site. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to this policy will be deemed your acceptance of those changes.
