Cookie Policy

This cookie policy is designed to inform you about what cookies are, how we use them, and how you can manage them if you choose to. We're giving you this information as part of our initiative to comply with the new recent legislation on how cookies should be used.

General Information regarding Cookies

What are Cookies

Cookies are small text files held on your computer. They allow us to give you the best browsing experience possible and mean we can understand how you use our site. Some cookies have already been set. You can delete and block cookies but parts of our site won't work without them. By using our website you accept our use of cookies.

Cookies we use at Martin Phillips Carpets, and what we use them for

Like many websites, we make use of session cookies and persistent cookies, neither of which collect any personally identifiable information.

Session Cookies

We use session cookies, which only last for the duration of your visit, to enable us to identify that the same person is moving from page to page. Session cookies are deleted the moment you close your browser. An example of how we use session cookies is when we maintain your shopping basket when you move from page to page on our site.

Persistent Cookies

Some cookies we use are persistent, in that they remain on your computer even after you leave our site. These remain on your computer after you have visited our site, meaning the site can remember your settings for when you return. Another reason we use persistent cookies is to help us record visitor trends over time which helps us monitor traffic and what parts of the website are more popular than others.

Managing your cookies

You have a number of options when it comes to receiving cookies. You can set your browser (see the instructions for Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Edge) either to reject all cookies, to allow only ‘trusted’ sites to send them, or to accept only those cookies from websites you are currently using.

We provide on/off switches on this page to let you enable and disable individual features that use cookies. Please note that if you disable a feature the associated cookies will still be stored by your browser until they expire, but the feature will no longer be loaded and it will not have access to the cookies.

We recommend that you don’t block all cookies because parts of our website rely on them to work properly.
