Cookie Policy

Our website use industry-wide technologies, such as “cookies”, to collect information about the use of our websites and email communications. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

Cookies allow us to customise your experience to better match your interests and preferences. Most browsers will allow you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block acceptance of cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. However, if you block or erase cookies, we may not be able to restore any preferences or customisation settings you have previously specified, and our ability to personalise your online experience would be limited. Please refer to your browser instructions to learn more about these functions.

What are cookies?

These pieces of information are generally used to improve your online experience, for example:

  • Enabling our website to recognise your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task.
  • Recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested.
  • Enabling our computer server to remember the contents of your wishlist when browsing our wine range.
  • Measuring how many people use our website and how they navigate it, so that it can be made easier to use and so that we can ensure there’s enough capacity for it to run as fast as possible.
  • You can manage and disable these small files yourself in your browser and learn more about them online.
