1. H.Weston & Sons Limited ("we", "us" or "our") Cookie Policy

You may not have given any thought to how websites use data to improve their services, measure how popular the site is or make sure that you receive digital adverts of interest to you. These processes require information to be collected and processed. This commonly includes information about the devices you use (such as laptops and mobile phones), your location and information obtained from your browsing activities. This information is collected using cookies (small files of data sent by our website) and other similar technologies such as tag, pixels and device identifiers which are deployed on or collected from your device when you land on a website or access content through a mobile app.

For the purposes of this cookie policy, we use the term "cookie" to cover our use of all types of similar technology used to monitor online activity, including cookies, tags, pixels and beacons. We hope that this policy helps you understand and feel more confident about our use of cookies.

This Policy

This is the cookie policy for the Weston's website (this/our "website") and we hope it helps you to understand our use of cookies. You can read more about our use of personal data in our privacy policy, here .

Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our website and our services since we can learn about what interests our website visitors and – just as importantly – what doesn’t!

This policy also covers the cookies that we place in our marketing emails. These cookies help us to understand which emails are opened (and when), which are ignored, and which types of content prompts people to click through to our website.  

We use the following types of cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies: these are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website or use shopping baskets.
  • Analytical or performance cookies: these allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and anonymous (i.e., we could not identify you as an individual using the data).
  • Functionality cookies: these are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
  • Targeting cookies: these cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties (such as our third-party advertising partners) for this purpose.

Some of the cookies that we use are deleted when you close your browser. These cookies are known as 'session cookies'.

Some other cookies have a longer lifetime (which varies cookie by cookie) and will be stored on your device until their expiration date. These are known as 'persistent cookies'.

We have included a table at the end of this policy showing all of the cookies that we use on the website if you would like more detail.

Third Party Cookies

Please note that third parties may also use cookies on our website, over which we have no control. For example, Google will place a Google DoubleClick cookie on your device where you permit Google to do so. You can find out more about how Google uses cookies by clicking here https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads?hl=en-US.

We also use social media cookies to track website traffic from social media platforms (for example, we use Facebook pixel to establish how effective our social media marketing campaigns are on Facebook.  We may also use Facebook pixels to create custom audiences for our advertisements on Facebook and our website.

You can find out more about how Facebook processes the information they collect about you and other individuals by accessing their privacy policy, which is available here: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy
