Cookie Policy 

This Cookie Notice explains how Majestic Wines Warehouse Limited (“Majestic”, "we", "us") and "ours") use cookies and similar technologies to recognise you when you visit our website at www.majestic.co.uk "Website").  It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.

What are cookies?

In common with most websites, majestic.co.uk uses "cookies". Cookies are small snippets of text that are stored on your computer. When you request a page from our website, the cookies are sent to our web server, and when we send a page back to you our server may add to or change these cookies. Without cookies, we would not be able to know that you are the same person from page to page.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Majestic) are called "first party cookies".  Only the website owner can access the first party cookies it sets.  Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies".  Additionally, we have partnerships with some carefully chosen third party services which involve including some code on our website, for example so that we can measure the effectiveness of our marketing activities, enable you to share content with your friends or login via a social media account. In some cases these partners may also store and retrieve their own cookies on your computer. Cookies set by websites other than majestic.co.uk are known as "third party cookies".

Why do we use cookies?

We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. We use cookies for a variety of reasons, such as remembering the contents of your basket. We also use analytics software, which allows us to track and measure patterns of behaviour so that we can improve our website. In the table below we list details of all the software we use for this purpose.

The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Website and the purposes they perform are described in the table below:

Strictly Necessary Cookies:

Some cookies are essential to the operation of our website and services and make it usable and secure by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure areas of the Site. We use those cookies in a number of different ways, including:

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website.  We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs").  These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Website.  This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns.  In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will often impair their functioning.

How can you control cookies?

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies.  You can exercise your cookie preferences through our cookie consent tool, which you can access here:
 

 

or by changing your cookie settings in the cookie table above.

You can also set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our website though your access to some functionality and areas of our website may be restricted.   As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser-to-browser, you should visit your browser's help menu for more information.

In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising.  If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com
