Cookie policy

What are cookies?

Nearly all websites that you visit use cookies to help improve your user experience. Sometimes a 'session cookie' is used so that the site can 'remember' you for the duration of your visit or a 'persistent' cookie can also be used for return visits.

They do all sorts of different helpful things like storing your preferences and helping you navigate easily and generally making your stay more comfortable. Without cookies the website may think you are a new customer every time you navigate to a new page, so if you login, as soon as you change pages the site will log you out again.

'First party cookies' are set by the website you are visiting. Sometimes 'Third party cookies' may be set by other websites that may have content on the page e.g Facebook, Twitter etc.

What is a cookie made of?

Flour, butter, eggs...hang on a minute! These cookies are simple text files that are stored on your computer and each one is unique to your browser and only accessible by the website you are visiting. It contains some anonymous information, digits and numbers, and allows the website to remember things like what's in your shopping basket. Please note: 'Cookies' cannot harm your computer.

What cookies do we use at cakedecoratingsupplies.co.uk?

Like all other ecommerce sites on the internet we use a number of different cookies on our site, this is standard practice. This website:

  • Will remember what is in your shopping basket
  • Remember how far you are through an order
  • Remember your login details
  • Make sure you are secure when logged into the website
  • Make sure the website looks consistent

We use a 'session cookie' to remember your log-in for you if you are a registered user and we deem these as being strictly necessary to the working of the website. If these are disabled then various functionality on the site will be broken.

Some of the cookies we use are ‘analytical’ cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they’re using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by making sure users are finding what they need easily. This is not tied to personally identifiable information. We do not collect or store any of your your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are. You can find out more about Google’s position on privacy as regards its analytics service at http://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/analytics/privacyoverview.html

The sharing buttons across the site allow visitors to share content onto social networks. If you use these buttons cookies can be set by LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Pinterest. In order to implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of our website. You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.

Currently we operate an ‘implied consent’ policy which means that we assume you are happy with this usage. If you are not happy, then you should either not use this site, or you should delete the cookies having visited the site, or you should browse the site using your browser’s anonymous usage setting (called “Incognito” in Chrome, “InPrivate” for Internet Explorer, “Private Browsing” in Firefox and Safari etc.)
