Collection and use of cookies/other information
  • Cookies are small text files that websites send to a web browser, which enables the server to collect information from the browser. They are stored on your computer.
  • They let the website know when you (the user) has returned.
  • This lets the site bring up information relevant to that user, for example your name, past orders etc.
  • To find out more on cookies visit www.allaboutcookies.org

Cookies make the interaction between users and websites faster and easier.
Without cookies, it would be very difficult for a website to allow a visitor to fill up a shopping basket or to remember the user's preferences or registration details for a future visit.
The Turtle Mat website uses cookies to allow customers to move from one part of the web site to another and to add items to the shopping basket without having to login repeatedly.

  • Cookies are not computer programs, and can't read other information saved on your hard drive.
  • They cannot be used to disseminate viruses, or get a user's email address etc.
  • They only contain and transfer to the website as much information as the users themselves have disclosed to that website.
  • It is possible to opt out of cookies via your browser's cookie settings, but if you do this you will not be able to shop from the Turtle Mat website as the functions of the website are dependent on cookies.
  • Please note that cookies are computer specific, so if you log on to any site from a different computer, the cookie settings on that computer will apply.

When you visit our website, cookies are either served directly by us, or by our business partners. Here is a description of the different kind of cookies we use.
