What are Cookies?

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

Overall, cookies help Prezzybox  to provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

Types of Cookies

Strictly Necessary/Essential Cookies

These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.


Analytics Cookies

Provide statistical information on site usage, e.g., web analytics so we can improve this website over time.


Functionality Cookies

These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third-party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.


Targeting/Advertising Cookies

These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.


Opting out of cookies

•    There are a number of options available so that you do not have to store any cookies at all.
•    You can set your browser so that it will not accept and store any cookies.
•    You can allow only certain trusted sites to store cookies on your computer.

It is worth bearing in mind that if you decide to delete all of your cookies, then you will likely have to re-enter all of your usernames and passwords on all of the sites that you visit, which will take you longer when shopping.  The Prezzybox website, though, will operate to your preference setting and you can choose to shop with or without cookies.

The Information Commissioner’s Office provides further useful and practical information on cookies and their use.
