Necessary cookies enable core functionality. The website cannot function properly without these cookies, and can only be disabled by changing your browser preferences.
We use two cookies that contain information about the cart as a whole and help us know when the cart data changes. We also use a cookie that contains a unique code for each customer so that system knows where to find the cart data in the database for each customer. No personal information is stored within these cookies.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
