Cookie Statement


Our website uses some unobtrusive cookies to store information on your computer.  Some cookies on this site are essential, and the site won't work as expected without them. These cookies are set when you submit a form, login or interact with the site by doing something that goes beyond clicking on simple links.

We also use some non-essential cookies to anonymously track visitors or enhance your experience of the site. If you're not happy with this, you may choose not to allow cookies via your browser settings, but some features of the site may then be unavailable.

There are only two cookies created by the our web site:

PHPSESSID

(Contains a PHP "session ID", expires when the browser is closed)

session

(Contains a PHP "session ID", can also contain an email address and encrypted password, expires after one year)

The "PHPSESSID" cookie is required so that the site can recognise the same user clicking from page to page. Without it, every page would be treated as the first visit to the site, and anything added to the shopping basket would be instantly forgotten. Online shopping would, therefore, be impossible.

The "session" cookie is intended for the user's convenience, Bluepark creates this with a copy of the initial session ID so that they can be classed as "returning" and the contents of their shopping basket will still be available. If the user signs in with an email address and password, these login details are are also saved so that they can remain logged in when returning (the password is encrypted). If the user signs out, their login details are removed from the cookie.

Any other cookies are created by 3rd party scripts such as Google Analytics.  More information on Googles use of cookies maybe found here in this document which describes how Google Analytics uses cookies to measure user-interactions on websites.

You may control third party cookies via your browser settings.

By using our site you accept the terms of our Privacy Policy.
