Cookies are small text files that are transferred and stored by your web browser to your computer or mobile device when you visit or use a website. Cookies contain information that is unique to your web browser, which means they can be used to distinguish you from other website users and allow the website to remember your choices and preferences during your visit.
Cookies can be considered as ‘first party’ or ‘third party’ cookies depending on the domain that places them. First party cookies are cookies set by a website visited by the user (for example, cookies placed by Saxon for www.saxon-brands.com). Third party cookies are set by a domain other than that of the website visited by the user, so if a user visits a website and a third party organisation sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third party cookie.
Cookies can also be considered as ‘persistent’ or ‘session’ cookies depending on their duration. Persistent cookies remain on a user's device for the period of time specified in those cookies, and are activated each time that user visits the website that created the cookies, until the cookies expire or are disabled by the user. Session cookies allow the actions of a user to be linked during a single browsing session. A session starts when a user opens a browser window and ends when the browser window is closed, following which all session cookies are deleted.
Different cookies have different functions. Our website uses the following cookies:
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential for our website to operate. For example, they enable you to log into secure areas of our website (such as your account, if you choose to create one), or add products to your shopping basket so you are able to view and pay for these when you have finished browsing. You cannot opt out of these cookies as the website cannot function properly without them.
These cookies allow us to measure and analyse how customers use our website by providing us with information such as website traffic, total sales, most viewed web pages and any pages where customers are encountering error messages from time to time. These cookies help us to measure the effectiveness of our website and improve the way our website works.
These cookies allow our website to remember choices you make when visiting our website and recognise you when you return in order to provide functionality for your benefit. For example, functionality cookies allow our website to remember settings that are specific to you, such as your login details if you choose to create an account with us, so that you don’t have to log back in from the same device each time you visit our website (provided the relevant cookie was not disabled in the interim).
You can find out more about the individual cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them in the table below:
The length of the current session
Essential: These cookies store temporary information to enable site functionality.
They are automatically deleted when you close your browser.
Once you accept this statement, the cookie is set so this panel is not presented to you on your next visit.
Essential: We want to ensure that users have the best possible experience on our site. To that end, we perform a simple check when you visit the site to ensure you are using a modern browser.
Once that check has been made we store the result in a cookie to prevent us having to run the same checking code again when you visit the site again.
Essential: When you log into the site (should this be necessary) we ask you if you want your credentials to be saved in a cookie for future reference so you don't have to manually log in again next time you visit the site.
The length of the current session
Essential: In order to prevent cross site request forgeries, we set a cookie which ensures that a request made to the site originates from the site rather than a third party source.
The analytical/performance, functionality and targeting/advertising cookies on our website are not strictly necessary for our website to work but improve the overall performance of our website and provide you with a better user experience. You can delete or block these cookies, but if you do this, we cannot ensure that all pages on our website will be displayed as intended or that all the features and functions of our website will be fully available.
Many web browsers accept cookies by default. You can change the settings to block or delete some or all cookies or to alert you when cookies are set on your device. As the precise means by which you may do this will vary from browser to browser, please visit your browser's help or settings function for more information.
Please note that if you use different computers or mobile devices to access and use our website, you will need to ensure that each web browser on each device is adjusted to suit your cookie preferences.
