What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files stored on your device by a web browser (e.g Internet Explorer) that hold information about your previous visits to our site and may contain personal data relating to you. We use this information to offer you a more personal browsing experience and to enhance your use of our website. By using our site, you consent to cookies being used in accordance with our policy. For more information on privacy, personal data and cookies, visit www.dataprotection.ie and www.whatarecookies.com.
What do cookies do?
Cookies perform many different tasks within our website; however, their key role is to remember your preferences so we can give you an improved service. If you've ever placed items in your basket, had to leave our site and returned later to find the items still in your basket, this is an example of one of our cookies in action. Cookies also ensure that any adverts you see online both on our website and on third party websites will be more relevant to your interests.
How do cookies help when you visit our site?
Cookies allow us to treat you as an individual; using knowledge gained from your previous visits and preferences we can tailor our site so that it is more personal to you, allows you greater interactivity and is easier to use.
Why are we telling you this?
To ensure you are completely aware of the types of cookies we use and to enable us to continue to bring you the best possible shopping experience, we are giving you a detailed outline of the cookies we use and their unique role in your shopping experience.
You are always free to decline cookies, if your browser permits, or to ask your browser to indicate when a cookie is being sent. You can also delete cookie files from your computer at your discretion.
What types of cookies do we use?
We use the following categories of cookies:
Cookies are also categorised as follows:
Strictly necessary cookies - These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services like shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided.
Performance cookies - These cookies collect information about how visitors use our website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. The role of these cookies is to allow us to analyse and improve the performance of our website ensuring you receive a consistent look, feel and shopping experience. Performance cookies (often known as web analytic cookies) don't collect any information that identifies the customer and all information collected is aggregated and therefore anonymous.
Functionality cookies - These cookies remember choices you made on previous visits to our site such as your username, language or region so we can provide enhanced, more personal features. They can also be used to remember changes you've made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages you can customise. Functionality cookies can also be used to provide services you have previously asked for such as watching videos or commenting on a blog. The information collected by these cookies may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other sites.
Targeting or advertising cookies - These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to your personal interests. Alongside this they limit the amount of times you see an advert and measure the effectiveness of adverts. This means you won't keep seeing irrelevant adverts or the same adverts over and over. These cookies are usually placed by trusted third parties (such as advertising networks) who we have a relationship with. They remember that you have visited a website and what pages you have viewed and the information within the cookie is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. These third parties may combine data which we share with data from other sources such as other websites or mobile applications. This combined data may then be used to ensure that we can better target you with products and services that are relevant to you. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisations that generate the advert. Please note that by opting out of receiving adverts from one browser, device or app will not necessarily opt you out of all such adverts from all browsers, devices or apps.
We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose. We also use re-targeting cookies, which remember information about your use of our Site so that we can serve promotional and other targeted information to you on other websites. These cookies are used in combination to recognise a user who is returning to our Site or who is visiting another website. Using these cookies, publishers and advertisers can draw up a profile and personalise the content you see.
