- Cookies Policy – Information the STEPHEN NEALL INTERIORS collects from you
a. What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer, tablet or mobile phone (referred to here as a “device”) browser from a website’s computer and is stored on your device’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.
On STEPHEN NEALL INTERIORS websites, cookies record information about your online preferences and allow us to tailor our websites to your interests.
Information supplied by cookies can help us to analyse the profile of our visitors and help us to provide you with a better user experience. For example, if on a previous visit you went to particular product pages, we might find this out from your cookie and highlight other relevant product information on your second and subsequent visits. The STEPHEN NEALL INTERIORS uses this type of information to help improve the services and products it provides to its users. All third parties are strictly required not to use any information for their own business or other purposes (see section 6 above).
- Third Party Cookies in embedded content on STEPHEN NEALL INTERIORS pages
Please note that during your visits to STEPHEN NEALL INTERIORS websites you may notice some cookies that are not related to the STEPHEN NEALL INTERIORS or the STEPHEN NEALL INTERIORS’s contractors. When you visit a page with content embedded from, for example, YouTube or Flickr, you may be presented with cookies from these websites. The STEPHEN NEALL INTERIORS does not control the dissemination of these cookies. You should check the third party websites for more information about these. Find out more about third party cookies in embedded content.
- STEPHEN NEALL INTERIORS cookies and how to reject cookies?
If you wish to control what cookies are set on your device through the STEPHEN NEALL INTERIORS website then you can find out how to do this in the Managing Cookies section of the STEPHEN NEALL INTERIORS Privacy & Cookies website. It is important to note that if you change your settings and block certain cookies, this means that certain personalised features cannot then be provided and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the websites’ features.
- Do Not Track (DNT) browser setting
DNT is a feature offered by some browsers which, when enabled, sends a signal to websites to request that your browsing is not tracked, such as by third party ad networks, social networks and analytic companies. This website does not currently respond to DNT requests, however, you may opt-out of tracking on this website, including analytics.
A uniform standard has not yet been adopted to determine how DNT requests should be interpreted and what actions should be taken by websites and third parties. The STEPHEN NEALL INTERIORS will continue to review DNT and other new technologies and may adopt a DNT standard once available.

- Cookie information
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’).
What is in a cookie?
A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or what’s in your shopping basket.
What to do if you don’t want cookies to be set
Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.
