COOKIES THAT WE USE

OUR SITE COOKIES:

ASP.NET_SessionId

This means that the next time you visit and login to the website, your shopping basket contents can be restored. There is absolutely no sensitive data stored in this cookie - we just store enough information to identify you in our database. This information is fully encrypted. All cookies used are 'first party' cookies. This means that any cookie set on the website can only be read back from the website.
