What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

How do we use cookies?

We use cookies to:

  • Record whether or not you are logged in, if you are a registered user.
  • Record any items you have added to the shopping cart.
  • Remember your selected preferences

We do not use any third-party cookies, nor do we use identifying information in cookies for tracking or advertising purposes.

Enabling cookies is necessary for the basic functions of the website to work, such as the shopping cart. You can delete or block these cookies, but if you do that some features of this site will not work as intended, if at all.

The cookie-related information is not used to identify you personally and the pattern data is fully under our control. These cookies are not used for any purpose other than those described here.

Which cookies we set

Cookie Name Type Purpose
wordpress_logged_in* Strictly Necessary Used to authenticate users. This is only set for registered users when they use the login form.
wordpress_test_cookie Strictly Necessary Checks whether cookies are enabled in the browser. This is used as part of the user authentication process, which depends on cookies.
woocommerce_cart_hash, woocommerce_items_in_cart, wp_woocommerce_session_* Strictly Necessary These cookies contain information about the shopping cart and record when the cart data changes. The third cookie (wp_woocommerce_session_*) contains a unique code for each customer so that it knows where to find the cart data in the database. No personal information is stored in these cookies.
comment_author_*, comment_author_email_* Functionality These two cookies are created if you post a comment as an unregistered user. Before these two cookies are set, explicit permission to do so is requested with a checkbox. They store your name and email address if you have filled them in and don’t want to fill them in next time you comment.
cookie_notice_accepted Functionality This cookie records whether or not you accept our use of cookies.
