Cookie Policy

What is a cookie?
We collect information about our customers via server logs, cookies, order forms and submission forms. Cookies are actually small text files stored on hard-drives used by websites. They provide you with more functionality to make your online experience more efficient. By using our website (shopskincare.co.uk), you agree that we can place cookies on your device.

Please note: None of our cookies store any credit/debit card information or password details.

What are cookies used for?
We have broken up the four types of cookies that most websites use into the following categories:

1) Necessary
Necessary cookies help make a website usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies. These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, like shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided.

2) Preferences
 Preference cookies enable a website to remember information that changes the way the website behaves or looks. These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

3) Statistics
Statistic cookies help website owners understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information anonymously. Statistical cookies may benefit the on-going improvements of the website and increased efficiency/relevance of any related marketing campaigns. These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don't collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. 

4) Marketing
Marketing cookies are used to track visitors across websites. The intention is to display ads that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for publishers and third party advertisers. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator's permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.
