Cookies policy

As is common practice with almost all professional websites this site uses cookies, which are tiny files that are downloaded to your computer, to improve the user experience. This page describes what information they gather, how we use them and why we sometimes need to store these cookies. We will also share how users can prevent these cookies from being stored, although this may downgrade or break certain elements of the sites functionality.

1. How we use cookies

We use cookies for a variety of reasons detailed below. Unfortunately in most cases there are no industry standard options for disabling cookies without completely disabling the functionality and features they add to this site. It is recommended that users leave on all cookies if they are not sure whether they need them or not in case cookies are used to provide a service that users require.

2. Disabling cookies

Users can prevent the setting of cookies by adjusting the settings on their browser (please refer to your browser's help documentation for details on how to do this). Be aware that disabling cookies will affect the functionality of this and many other websites that you visit. Disabling cookies will usually result in also disabling certain functionality and features of this site. Therefore it is recommended that you do not disable cookies.

3. The cookies we set

The main way we use cookies on this site is to remember what geographical region users are browsing from. We display slightly different versions of the site to users in North America. Upon first visit to this website, users are asked if we have detected their region correctly and whether we can remember that choice for next time. This cookie saves us from having to ask each time a user visits the site, which would be a frustrating experience, and makes sure all our users are seeing the content that is appropriate for them.

We also run an eCommerce store on a third-party platform called Shopify, which uses some cookies to ensure that users' orders are remembered between pages so that we can process it properly.

4. Third party cookies

In some special cases we also use cookies provided by trusted third parties. The following section details which third party cookies users might encounter through this site.

This site uses Google Analytics which is one of the most widespread and trusted analytics solution on the web to help us to understand how users browse the site and ways that we can improve the user experience. These cookies may track things such as how long visitors spend on the site and the pages that they visit so we can continue to produce engaging content.
