We are not using any third-party cookies from third-party websites at this time.
Cookies don’t stay around forever and your web browser will eventually delete them. When a website stores a cookie, it states how long the cookie should stay on the computer for - this can be for the current visit only or for a period of time, for example one year.
You can choose to delete our, or any website’s, cookies from your web browser at anytime (for help on how to do this, please contact the manufacturer of your web browser and ask for support). You can also set your web browser to not accept any cookies if you wish. You will still be able to view our web site, but you will not be able to purchase products, log in to your account, or benefit from personalised features.
