Name of Cookie


Strictly Necessary


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, the site software creates this with a copy of the initial session ID so that you can be classed as "returning" and the contents of your shopping basket will still be available. If the user signs in with an email address and password, these login details 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.
