What are cookies?
In common with most websites, slurp.co.uk uses "cookies". A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. When you request a page from our website, the cookies are sent to our web server, in order to remember information about you, 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 and some functionality on our website would not work.
Cookies set by us are called "first party cookies". Only we can access the first party cookies we set. Cookies set by other parties 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, enabling you to share content with your friends or login via a social media account. These partners may also store and retrieve their own cookies on your computer.
We use first party and third party cookies for several 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.

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 email marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will often impair their functioning.
