In addition to the information Hayter Limted ("we") collect as described inour Privacy Policy, we use cookie technology to collect information about the use of our website, www.hayter.co.uk

About cookies on our website

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we, or a third party, place(s) onto your device. It is used to tailor your experience either for the duration of their visit (using what is known as a “session” cookie) or for repeat visits (whereby we store what is known as a “persistent” cookie).

We also use "analytical" cookies which allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how they move around our website.

Cookies do not hold any private information which could personally identify you, such as your home address, date of birth or credit card details. If you would like to find out more about cookies, visit www.allaboutcookies.org

If you are not comfortable with our website using cookies, you can manage your cookies by changing your browser settings as detailed below. Please note that by not using cookies some of the website’s features will not be available, as they require cookies to function.

1. Session / strictly necessary

This type of cookies only lasts for the duration you are on the website and allows us to link your actions during a browser session. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted. Your general refusal of our use of cookies will not extend to this type of cookies - when you request a service that requires them, they will be used. We use these cookies predominantly for online purchases and in particular, to temporarily store information such as product type, quantity information, promotional codes and address information.

2. Persistent / performance

This type of cookies stays on your device and remembers your settings the next time you visit for a specific period of time. For example, a persistent cookie is used to store your consent for us to store cookies on your machine.

4. Third party

These types of cookies are set by other websites through our site:
