Cookie Policy

Our Website uses cookies (as defined below) to distinguish you from other users of Our Website. This is how most websites operate as cookies are essential for delivering a great website and shopping experience for our customers.

WHAT IS A COOKIE?

A cookie is a small data file of letters and numbers that we  will place on your computer or device.

WHAT COOKIES DO WE USE?

There are a number of different types of cookies; session cookies, persistent cookies, first party cookies and third party cookies.

  • Session cookies: These cookies link your actions on a website to our data system and are used for a number of reasons such as remembering what you’ve put into your shopping basket while browsing the site. The session cookies expire as soon as the browser is closed so no information is stored permanently.

 

  • Persistent cookies: These cookies remember your preferences or actions across a website and help us to provide you with information that is relevant to you in the future. The information collected can be used to track actions across multiple browser sessions and may be used to make advertising more relevant to you.

 

  • First party cookies: These cookies are set and handled directly by G Plan Upholstery, they cannot be accessed or read by any other website.

 

  • Third party cookies: These are cookies that we have given a separate website permission to use on G Plan Upholstery, these allow the separate website to record certain actions you take on G Plan Upholstery.

 

We further differentiate cookies by whether they are essential, required or optional:

ESSENTIAL:

Essential cookies are required for the site to function. These cannot be disabled, as they would seriously compromise the site’s performance. For example, a session cookie that keeps a note of whether you are logged in is essential.

REQUIRED:

Required cookies are different from essential cookies because the site would still function if they were removed. We class our analytics cookies as required because they allow us to use anonymous traffic data to improve how the site functions.

OPTIONAL COOKIES:

These cookies are used to enable functions that are not essential, and not required. For example, cookies used to track “likes” and tweets are considered optional. You can choose not to accept optional cookies by clicking the “Do not accept cookies” button in the Optional Cookies Preferences below.
