• What are cookies?

    Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a ‘session cookie’) or for multiple repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as ‘first party cookies’), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (‘third party cookies’).

  • Cookies set by us

    Cookies depend on specific features that are enabled on the site. The cookies are active when a user interacts with one of these features or to allow admin functions to be performed from within the store’s dashboard.

    The cookies our site may set are:

    Name: woocommerce_cart_hash
    Duration: session
    Purpose: Helps the store determine when the cart contents/data changes

    Name: woocommerce_items_in_cart
    Duration: session
    Purpose: Helps the store determine when the cart contents/data changes.

    Name: wp_woocommerce_session
    Duration: 2 days
    Purpose: Contains a unique code for each customer so that it knows where to find the cart data in the database for each customer.

    No personal information is stored within these cookies.

  • Controlling cookies

    Visitors may wish to restrict the use of cookies, or completely prevent them from being set. Most browsers provide for ways to control cookie behaviour such as the length of time they are stored — either through built-in functionality or by utilising third party plugins.
