What are Cookies & how do we use them?

‘Cookies’ are small text files that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive, mobile phone or other device you use to access websites.

Cookies can’t harm your computer. We don’t store personally identifiable information in the cookies we create, but we do use encrypted information gathered from them to help improve your experience of the site. For example, they help us to identify and resolve errors, or can determine relevant products to show you when you’re browsing other sites.

If you don’t wish to enable cookies, you will still be able to browse this site and request a brochure or design consultation via our online forms. Most web browsers have cookies enabled, but these can easily be turned off. You can manage your settings if your web browser supports JavaScript. If not, you can still find out about the cookies we use below, but you’ll need to manage them through your web browser settings.

How can I see and manage my cookies in my browser?

Most modern browsers allow you to see what cookies you have and to clear them individually or all together.  To find out how to do this, go to aboutcookies.org, which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of desktop browsers.
