In order to comply with new rules, we use a system of classifying the different types of cookies which we use on the Website, or which may be dropped by third parties through our websites. The classification was developed by the International Chamber of Commerce UK and explains more about which cookies we use, why we use them, and the functionality you will lose if you decide you don't want to have them on your device. Please be reassured that we are working on other privacy and cookie-related improvements to the Website.
What is a Cookie?
Persistent cookies - these cookies remain on a user's device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.
Session cookies - these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
Cookies used on Party Packs
These are cookies that are required in order to carry out a service that may be specifically requested by you. An example would be if you place an item in the shopping basket and a cookie is placed to remember the item that you added.
These cookies provide us with statistics that help us gauge your experience on our website. No personal information is collected with these types of cookies, however we do gather important data such as how long you are on our site, the pages you have visited and most importantly if you have made a purchase.
Third Party Cookies
In some cases a third party (an external organisation that provides a service to us) will place a cookie on your device to collect information about your browsing habits that help identify if certain services that they provide are being used. A good example of this, would be if you click on a link on a search engine, and get directed to our website, a third party may place a cookie to indicate that you clicked on this link.
Using browser settings to manage cookies
The Help menu on the menu bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether. You can also disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer.
