This site, like virtually all sites on the internet uses cookies. Cookies are small packets of information passed between our website and your internet browser which in the main, help the two communicate and remember previous interactions and preferences.

Please be assured that your privacy is of the utmost importance to us, and any information that we are able to access as a result of cookies is at a generic, aggregate level, and there is no way that we could ever identify an individual user using cookies or see any information about you that you did not already explicitly give us.

Some cookies, such as those which remember what items you have put in to your basket, are essential to the successful functioning of the site. Others, such as those which track which pages are being looked at, are not essential to the functioning of the site, but are extremely useful to us in understanding customer behaviour, which pages work and which don't, and therefore what actions we need to take to improve our site and your experience of it.

You may wish to prevent non-essential cookies being placed on your computer.  If you do, please take a look at this guide on how to disable cookies in your browser. Please note though, that this may mean that sites no longer function as you would expect them to.

Is generated when a website owner has created a custom report in Analytics to understand different visitor behaviour. I did create a custom report in Google Analytics to understand how many visitors to the site end up buying something.
