Introduction

We use cookies on our website to create the most secure and effective website possible for our customers. This Cookie Policy explains what cookies are and how we use them. The information below is provided as part of our initiative to comply with recent legislation and to make sure we are honest and clear about your privacy when using our website.

What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that is sent to and stored on your computer, smartphone or other devices as you browse a website. Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that website to 'remember' you, either for the duration of your visit (using a 'session cookie') or for repeat visits (using a 'persistent cookie').

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, remembering what's in your shopping basket, and generally improving your experience of a website. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website doesn't use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site − for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it won't recognize you and it won't be able to keep you logged in.

Some websites will also use cookies to enable them to target their advertising or marketing messages based for example, on your location and/or browsing habits.

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting ('first party cookies') or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing ('third party cookies').

Our Cookie Policy

At mummyista, we use cookies to improve your shopping experience by keeping track of what you have in your basket and to remember you when you return to our site. This is important to us as we want to enhance your experience of shopping or browsing on our site.

If you find the idea of a website storing information on your computer, smartphone or other devices a bit intrusive, you can block some or all cookies or even delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you will lose some functions of the website and you will not be able to order products from us. If you don't want to receive cookies, you can modify your browser so that it notifies you when cookies are sent to it or you can refuse cookies altogether. You can also delete cookies that have already been set.

If you wish to restrict or block web browser cookies which are set on your device then you can do this through your browser settings; the Help function within your browser should tell you how. Alternatively, you may wish to visit www.aboutcookies.org, which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of browsers and devices.
