Cookie Statement

In recent times you may have heard more and more about 'cookies' and online privacy in general.
But what are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit websites. They serve as a tiny 'memory' when most of the internet is otherwise 'stateless' - it doesn't normally have any memory at all.
Learn more about cookies

At GT Decorations we use cookies primarily to remember what items you have added to your shopping basket and without these cookies the shopping basket wouldn't work at all. Other cookies may be used to gather statistical information to allow us to improve the way we cater for your use on different browsers, connection speeds or different devices. For example, if many people access our website using their tablet computer or smartphone, then we'd like to make sure that it displays correctly to those visitors.

Do I need cookies?

Cookies are an important part of most internet functionality. As mentioned above, our shopping basket unfortunately wouldn't work without cookies and you'd not be able to place any orders. However, you would still be able to browse our website without cookies enabled.
Most browsers have cookies enabled by default to allow you to make use of functionality that requires them, but an option will be available to turn them off if necessary. Please consult your browser's help for information on how to do so.

Are cookies harmful?

In general it is not possible for cookies to do any damage to your computer, they are not viruses or malicious code, just plain text. We would never store sensitive information such as credit card details, passwords or even your name.

Types of cookies

There are essentially two types of cookies: So-called 'session' cookies and persistent cookies.
Session cookies will be deleted the moment you close your browser (including all windows and tabs). Persistent cookies are stored for longer and may have an expiry date after which they are removed automatically.

Cookies at GT Decorations

The table below details all the cookies that we use on this website:

Cookie name Purpose
JSESSIONID This session cookie allows our web server to process your actions on the website, including 'add to basket' or the checkout. The website wouldn't work properly without it.
cookiesok This cookie is set when you click the 'OK' button to hide the cookie notice at the bottom of the screen. This allows us to hide the notice for the remainder of your visit and during subsequent visits that you or someone else makes from the same computer. This cookie expires after 90 days, at which point the cookie notice may appear again (click 'OK' again to hide it for another 90 days).
__gt_cartcontents This cookie is used to save the contents of your shopping basket for up to 48 hours from your last visit. If your visit is disrupted for any reason (power cut, an urgent phone call, ...) and you were in the middle of putting together an order, then this is a handy thing to have to avoid having to start all over.
If you disable cookies you can still use the 'save your basket' link on the shopping basket page to restore your basket later.
__utma, __utmb, __utmc, __utmz These cookies enable Google Analytics (GA) to work. GA is a software that allows us to analyse statistical user information, for example visitor numbers, the way you interact with our website or how effective certain marketing is. In turn this information helps us improve our website and your shopping experience in general.
Please note that information collected by this means is stored in aggregrate form only and cannot be linked to you as an individual. No sensitive or confidential details are stored.
__qca This cookie is set by Quantcast which attempts to provide a 'typical' demographic composition of our audience. Just like with Google Analytics this is done in an aggregate form only and cannot be traced to you as an individual.
