We use cookies on this website. A cookie is a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The text file is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser. To find out more about cookies, including seeing what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

Cookies have various different functions, but essentially they are used to allow websites to respond to you as an individual and how you use it. Cookies in no way give us access to your computer or any information other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies when you enter our website and see the cookie notice. Most browsers also allow you to refuse to accept cookies (for example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookie by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector). This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.

Do not track (DNT) is a feature offered by some browsers, with some newer browsers offering it as default. If you enable it, it sends a signal to websites to request that your browsing isn’t tracked, for example by third party ad or social networks, or analytic companies. You can also delete any cookies that are already stored on your computer’s hard drive.

A table of the cookies we use on our website is set out below.

If you do not wish to accept cookies from our website, please leave this site immediately and then delete and block all cookies from this site. Alternatively, you may opt out of receiving information from us. You can call us on 01243 756240 or you can email us on hello@thelittlebotanical.com.
