Some Cookies can be turned on and off and some Cookies are set to remember your Cookie preferences when you do.

By default, this Cookie is not active, meaning that all Cookie actions (with the exception of the Session Cookie - see below) are blocked.
If you allow any of the Cookies below to run, by clicking on the buttons below or requesting an interaction on the website which will require the unblocking of a Cookie,
this Cookie is set to remember your preference so that your choice is maintained throughout your visit and future visits.

The Session Cookie holds a value in your browser's memory which is a non-personally identifiable string of characters representing your browsing session / visit.
On it's own it is just an alphanumeric string assigned to represent your browsing session, however it does connect to information which is temporarily stored securely on the server which allows you to:
i) Keep the contents of watchlist from page to page if you use the basket to make your enquiry.
ii) Allows us to assign an alphanumeric code which relates to your account which will be checked against our database in order to return your account details when you request to be logged in.
Due to the temporary storage of this non-personally identifiable information being essential to fulfill aspects of this online service, and given that the data is temporarily stored on the server which expires when the session times out or the browser is closed, it has been deemed that this Cookie can not be blocked when using this website.
This Cookie is also dormant until certain actions are performed on the website at your request, and as such you can avoid the setting of this information by:
i) not creating an account / signing into an account
ii) not using the watchlist to create a short list of your favourite items on sale
