What are cookies?

Cookies are very small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile devices when you visit a website. They generally track, save and store information about your interactions with the website and are usually required for the site to run as effectively as possible. They allow us to know things like – have you been here before, what’s in your shopping basket or are you logged in, so that the site can function appropriately. They are also commonly used to analyse how visitors use the site so that we know where to make improvements.

Cookies are nothing to be afraid of and are a common part of using the modern Internet. A European Commission analysis published in February 2015 found that across Europe an average website sets 34.6 cookies – so they really aren’t uncommon.


Why do we use cookies?

We don’t use many cookies. The ones we do use are to help give you a better user experience and also to help us understand more about how the site’s being used so that we can improve it in the future. Some of them are for our benefit, such as user analytics and website usage data, and others are for your benefit, such as providing a functional e-commerce and payment gateway solution.


The cookies we use

We don’t use that many cookies, but here is some information about the cookies we do use and what they’re for.


  • _ga: This cookie is set by Google Analytics and is used to identify unique users of the website and helps us to track how the site is used and where we can make improvements. It identifies you via a unique ‘client ID’ which is randomly generated and does not contain any personal information about you. It expires after 2 year. More info. You can opt-out of our Google Analytics tracking by using this tool.
  • __stripe_mid, __stripe_orig_props, _ga, cid, country, machine_identifier, mp_#, mp_mixpanel__c, private_machine_identifier and stripe.csrf: These cookies are set and used by our payment gateway Stripe for handling payment transactions.
  • catAccCookies: This cookie is set by a plugin used on our website called Cookie Consent which powers the cookie consent popup that you should have seen when you first visited our site. This cookie tells the browser that you’ve accepted the cookies so that it doesn’t ask you every time. It expires after 30 days.
  • wordpress_logged_in_: This cookie is set by WordPress which is the content management system that our website is built using and it tells the site if you’re logged in. This means we can give you access to your account on the site. It is a ‘session’ cookie, which means it expires as soon as you close the site.
  • wordpress_sec_: This cookie is also set by WordPress and helps manage a logged in user. It is a ‘session’ cookie, which means it expires as soon as you close the site.
  • wordpress_test_cookie: This cookie is set as part of WordPress and tests whether or not the browser has cookies enabled. It is a ‘session’ cookie, which means it expires as soon as you close the site.
  • wp-settings-#: This cookie is set by WordPress and the number on the end records the database ID of the logged in user. We use this to help decide what logged in users can and can’t see – for example, an admin can see more than just a customer. It expires after 1 year or once you log out.
  • wp-settings-time-#: This cookie is set by WordPress and the number on the end records the database ID of the logged in user. We use this to help customise your view of the admin interface and possibly also the main site interface. It expires after 1 year or once you log out.
  • csrftoken, rur and urlgen: These cookies are set by Instagram and help the site show you our latest Instagram images in the footer. Two of them are session cookies so will expire when you close the site, and the other expires in 5 days.
  • woocommerce_cart_hash and woocommerce_items_in_cart: These cookies are set by WooCommerce which powers the e-commerce side of the site. They contain information about the cart/basket as a whole and helps WooCommerce know then the cart changes. These are both session cookies so will expire when you close the site.
  • wp_woocommerce_session_#: This cookie is also set by WooCommerce. It contains a unique code for each customer so that it knows where to find your cart data in the database. No personal information is stored. This cookie will expire after 48 hours.


How you can block or delete cookies

You can block or delete any cookies, although this may stop websites from functioning properly. Without cookies enabled the site won’t know what’s in your basket and so you may not be able to make purchases successfully.

All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings, and you can usually find these in the ‘settings’ or ‘preferences’ menu. Here are some links to help you depending what browser you are using.

You can visit the following sites if you would like more information about managing cookies:
