We use cookies online to do the job a good sales assistant does in store, noting what you are interested in, seeing if we can help show you where those items are, find more like them and tell you about products which work well with them. We can also tell you about special offers and promotions, just like they would.

Normally until you buy from us, you are an unnamed user of our website but we want to make you a customer. We work with online advertising partners to do this. They set a cookie from our web pages and this allows them to spot when you use the same device on other websites they publish ads on. They can then make sure you see an ad from us . In some cases, the ads you see from us online will be more tailored to you . This uses known and observed information about you to try and categorise you and predict what you will want to buy and which offers you will most like . This will be from our knowledge of you as a customer with us and from your use of our websites but we do not share that detailed information with those advertising partners. In other cases, it will be based on what advertising partners /social media providers know about you from their cookies and use of their websites but we do not receive the detailed information from these websites.
