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”).

Both websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.

What personal data we collect?
The personal data we collect from users and site visitors differs.
SITE VISITORS: For general site visits we do not collect or retain any personal data, through site analytics we monitor what pages people visit, the length of their stay and the activity conducted. Site visitors remain anonymous until they register or login.
SITE USERS: Site users are classified as people who have Registered with us; have Logged-In; people who have filled any of our Contact Forms; and/or have Emailed. The personal data we collect and retain includes name; contact phone, addresses and email; personal account preferences; transactional data, such as purchase information; the nature of contact such as query, complaint, compliment, order; and technical data, such as information about cookies. We do not collect or retain any sensitive personal data.

Why we collect it?
By registering, logging in, filling out contact forms, commenting, emailing, phoning and/or writing to us you are actively consenting to corresponding with us and sharing your personal data as listed above.
