Cookies and online privacy
In common with most websites, ndjohn.co.uk uses "cookies". Cookies are small snippets of text that are stored on your computer. When you request a page from our website, the cookies are sent to our web server, and when we send a page back to you our server may add to or change these cookies. Without cookies, we would not be able to know that you are the same person from page to page. We do not store anything that could identify you personally in cookies; instead we store codes and references which can only be connected to your personal details by our own systems.

We use cookies for a variety of reasons, such as remembering the contents of your shopping trolley, your preferences such as your local store, and displaying the products you've recently viewed. We also use analytics software, which allows us to track and measure patterns of behaviour among our users so that we can improve our website.

Additionally, we have partnerships with some carefully chosen third party services which involve including some code on our website, for example so that we can jointly measure the effectiveness of our marketing activities or enable you to share content with your friends. In some cases these partners may also store and retrieve their own cookies on your computer. Cookies set by websites other than ndjohn.co.uk are known as "third party cookies".

In accordance with the Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications 2003, and to be as open and transparent as possible, we have provided more information on the cookies in use on ndjohn.co.uk here. These details may change over time as we continue to develop our website, and we are investing in finding ways to reduce our use of cookies whilst continuing to deliver the best experience possible for our customers.

You can change the settings in your web browser to allow or deny different websites from setting cookies.
