Cookies assign a unique identification to your computer and store the details on your hard drive via a facility in your web browser.

Information Automatically Logged
We use your IP (Internet Protocol) address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. Your IP address is also used to help identify you and your shopping basket.
Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer (or mobile device) when you first visit a site or page. A cookie helps the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
There are many functions cookies serve. For example, cookies can help us to remember your customer details, which products you've looked at, analyse how well our website is performing, or even allow us to recommend products we believe will be of interest to you.
Certain cookies may contain personal information – for example, if you login, a cookie will store your customer identifier. Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our website, or a user’s general location.
The cookies on our website perform one of the following three functions:
1. Essential Cookies
If a user or customer opts to disable these cookies, the user will not be able to access all of the past order information or may not be able to use our checkout.
2. Performance Cookies
3. Functionality Cookies
We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences or which product category you are visiting (e.g. flowers. chocolates, plants or wine). For example, cookies save you the trouble of typing in your details every time you access the site.
We use or allow third parties to serve cookies that fall into the four categories above. For example, like many companies, we use analytics software to help us monitor our website traffic. We may also use third party cookies to help us with market research, revenue tracking, improving site functionality and monitoring compliance with our terms and conditions and copyright policy.
Banner advertising on 3rd party websites
The purpose of banner advertising is to present products you've viewed on our website in the forms of adverts on 3rd party websites. The products presented might be the same or similar to the ones you've seen when visiting our site. This form of advertising relies heavily on cookies. Please be assured that the information in these cookies is completely anonymous and does not contain any of your personal details.

Other uses of cookies - tracking emails
The emails that we send customers may contain a single, campaign-unique “web beacon pixel” to tell us whether these emails are opened and verify any clickthrough to links in the email. We may use this information for purposes including determining which of our emails are more interesting to users or to query whether users who do not open our emails wish to continue receiving them. The pixel will be deleted when you delete the email. If you do not wish the pixel to be downloaded to your device, you should select to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML.
