As you may be aware, recent legislation requires websites to gain visitors' consent to use certain types of cookies and we're working to implement the appropriate changes to our websites as soon as possible.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are sent to and stored on your computer, smartphone or other device through your web browser whenever you visit a website. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to determine your preferences, track visitors to a site and store temporary information between visits such as items placed in a shopping cart.
More information about cookies can be found on allaboutcookies.org.
How cookies make our website easier to use
Cookies allow us to provide you with a better experience by being able to save your shopping cart between visits, eliminate the need to keep asking you for the same information when filling in forms, and tailor the content according to your specific tastes and requirements.
Finally, we use 'analytics' cookies to help us identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse what visitors like and dislike and how we can improve things for you.
When we include links to other websites, please bear in mind they will have their own privacy and cookie policies that will govern the use of any information you submit. We recommend you read their policies as The Home & Garden Centre is not responsible or liable for their privacy practices.
How you can manage your cookies
The browsers of most computers, smartphones and other web-enabled devices are typically set up to accept cookies. If you wish to amend your cookie preferences for this website or any other websites, you can do this through your browser settings. Your browser's 'help' function will tell you how to do this.
However, please remember that cookies are often used to enable and improve certain functions on our website. If you choose to switch certain cookies off, it is likely to affect how our website works. For example, if your browser is set to disable 'session' cookies, although you will still be able to view our website, you won't be able to store wishlists or shopping baskets between visits.
