What Are Cookies?

Cookies are tiny text files that websites place on users' computers to make the website faster and easier for you; they allow us to make your shopping basket work properly, and they help you move from one part of the website to another easily.
Cookies do not contain any personal or private information, and they can't read information saved on your drive. They are not computer programmes so they cannot harm your computer, or be used to spread viruses, or to get a user's email address or private information.
Without using cookies our website will not function properly and you will not be able to order online.
