Cookie Policy

What is a cookie?

Cookies are text files which contain information about your internet usage that is held in your browser or on your computer's hard drive. There are different types of cookie: some are essential for the site to operate properly, whereas others are aimed at enhancing and personalising your user experience. Cookies can help us to understand how consumers are interacting with our website, which helps us to improve our site and to deliver a better service to you.

Why do we use cookies?

There are several reasons why we and most other websites use cookies.

  • To improve our websites for your benefit
  • To tailor the advertisements or promotions you will see on our website

What types of cookies do we use?

  1. Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential to enable you to move around the website and use its features. Without these cookies, we cannot provide some of the basic functionalities of our website.

  1. Performance Cookies

These cookies generally collect information about how visitors use our website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and the pages that they don't. This helps us to understand and improve the site so it is easy to use and includes helpful content. They also allow us to fix bugs or glitches on the website. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies visitors, so we can’t identify you individually.

  1. Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow our website to remember the choices you make as you browse the site. They provide more enhanced and personal features. The information collected is anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other sites once you leave our site.

4. Advertising or Targeting Cookies

These cookies are used to deliver adverts which are more relevant to you, based upon the way you have used the websites in the recent past. They also enable us to put limits on the number of times you might see an advert - to hopefully stop them becoming annoying and repetitive. These cookies remember that you have visited the sites, track what products you may have looked at, and this information may be shared with our advertising partners.

If you see an advert from us once you have left our site and are browsing other sites on the internet, that magically seems to understand what you previously showed an interest in then this is enabled by targeting cookies. This enables advertising that is clearly more relevant to you as an individual, so we feel it offers a valuable service, which is why we use targeting cookies.

How to turn off cookies

You can turn cookies off at any time, by going into your browser settings, however this may have a detrimental effect on your user experience. If you are happy to continue letting us use cookies in the ways set out in this Policy, to help us guide our work, then you need not do anything. If you have any concerns about the cookies we use, please contact: feedback@mumandbabyonline.co.uk and put ‘cookies’ in the subject line.
