We use standard technology called 'cookies' on this website. A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your computer's hard drive by your web browser when you access a website.
Cookies enable us to understand who has seen which pages and advertisements, to determine how frequently particular pages are visited and to show us the most popular areas of our website. They allow us to enrich your experience of using the website and make it more user friendly.
Please note: cookies DO NOT contain confidential or personally identifiable information such as your home address, telephone number or credit card details. Our site will not work without cookies.
The cookie settings on this website are set to 'allow all cookies' to give you the very best experience. If you continue without changing these settings, you consent to this - but if you want, you can change your settings at any time (see below: Removing and Disabling Cookies). We use the following types of cookies on HotChemist.co.uk:
Session cookies enable us to keep track of your movement through the website and allow you to use the site quickly and easily without having to re-enter information. For example, they allow us to remember what you add to your shopping basket to enable you to transact without having to re-enter all your choices again at the checkout. Without session cookies, if you click 'checkout', the new page would not recognise your past activities on all prior pages and your shopping basket would always remain empty.
Persistent cookies help us remember your settings for each time you visit. They enable us to authenticate who you are once you register and to remember your preferences the next time you visit the site. This gives you faster and more convenient access each time you visit our site.
