How we use cookies

Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics (a service offered to websites all around the web by Google) to count visitors to our website. Google Analytics can also tell us things such as which pages are looked at the most and how long people stay on those pages, so that we can make sure our website is performing well and giving visitors the information they need.
The best up-to-date source of information about the cookies Google Analytics uses is on Google’s website.

Google provide a browser add-on which allows you to block any information from being sent to Google Analytics (opt-out). You can read more about this add-on and install it at the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on page. Currently supports Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Opera web browsers.

To keep track of shopping cart data, our ecommerce system (WooCommerce) makes use of 3 cookies:

  • woocommerce_cart_hash
  • woocommerce_items_in_cart
  • wp_woocommerce_session_

The first two cookies contain information about the cart as a whole and helps WooCommerce know when the cart data changes. The final cookie (wp_woocommerce_session_) 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 any of these cookies.

We use PayPal as our ecommerce payment gateway. When you checkout using our shopping cart system, you will be transferred to PayPal to make your payment securely, to do so, PayPal will use their own cookies which we have no control over. Please see the PayPal website for full details of their cookies and privacy policies.
