What are cookies?

Cookies are information packets which store information about your computer use. They are sent by web servers to web browsers, and stored by the web browsers. The information is sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page. This is retained and can help make interaction between you and a website faster and easier as it remembers who you are and the last time you came to the website. This information includes things like websites you have visited, searches you have made, and products you are interested in. It is used to serve you more relevant information based on your shopping preferences. It means you get a richer experience when using your computer to browse websites.

We use cookies to tell us what you have put in your basket and also what other kind of products you may be interested in based on what you have previously bought or viewed.

There are two different types of cookies - the ones we use on eyespace-eyewear.co.uk (called first party cookies) and the ones companies we work with use (we call these third party cookies). To shop on eyespace you need to have your first party cookies enabled, although you can browse with these switched off.
