Cookies are used on our shopping site where they are strictly necessary for the site functionality. They are used to aid navigation, and to keep track of the contents of your shopping basket. If you log into your account, your logged-in status is recorded in a temporary cookie. If you select the 'Remember Me' Option in the checkout, a cookie will be used to remember your details.

You can turn off cookies by going to your browser's privacy settings, but then you will not be able to place orders on web sites, and you might find that some other features of this website don't work.

Our shopping site (store) uses the following cookies:

Plain English explanation: If your computer loses its internet connection then reconnects (which probably happens frequently) anything in the shopping basket will still be there (otherwise you'll find it's empty).

Cookie: ACTINIC_BUSINESS.
Expiry: it is deleted when you close your browser.
Technical explanation: the login digest for logged in customers.
Plain English explanation: if you were logged into your account (assuming you created one) and your computer loses its internet connection then reconnects (which probably happens frequently) you will still be logged in (otherwise you will suddenly leave the website and get a message asking you log in again).
