Use of cookies

What are cookies and how do we use them?

Cookies are small files that are stored on your computer, handheld pc or mobile as you browse various web pages. At CathKidston.com and careers.cathkidston.com we use cookies to make sure that our site is easy to use and you can browse without experiencing any problems. For example, one of the most common uses of cookies is to keep track of what you place in your basket – without cookies enabled our website would not remember what you have asked it to do.

Cookies do not collect or store Personal Information (e.g. credit card details, name, address etc.), and we do not use cookies in combination with your Personal Information.

If you want to buy products on our website, you will need to have cookies enabled within your internet browser. Your computer will automatically do this for you, and you don't need to change anything for this to happen. You can disable cookies by changing your browser settings to reject cookies; click here to find out how to disable/enable cookies. You will not be able to shop on our website if you disable cookies.

Which cookies are used on Careers.cathkidston.com?

Two types of cookies are used on this Website: session cookies and persistent cookies.

Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the Website. We use session cookies:

(a) to track the number of visits to the Website

(b) to compile anonymous statistics that allow us to understand how users use our Website such as details of the pages visited per session on the Website and the number of return visits to the Website (we cannot identify you personally in this way)

(c) to enable basic personalisation of the Website

(d) to keep track of your current shopping session so that you may retrieve your shopping basket at any time

(e) within the user ID sign in session for security

(f) to remember if a user has signed out

Persistent cookies remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer than session cookies. We use one persistent cookie which is stored to enable the Website to determine whether you have been here and signed in previously. This helps to authenticate you as a registered user, giving you access to your user profile and certain otherwise inaccessible areas of the Website.

We have listed below the cookies that are currently active on careers.cathkidston.com and we have also provided information on what these cookies do.
