Cookie Policy

While we love making cookies with our excellent organic flours, here’s some information regarding a different kind of cookie…


What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of information, stored as a text file, which is placed on your computer hard drive. These files are attached by lots of websites that you visit. Cookies allow us to analyse and improve your user experience of the website, for instance by remembering that you have visited before.

We use industry standard third-party cookies such as Google Analytics to track your behaviour online and gain statistical information at an aggregated level in the following ways:

We track the number of visits to the website, where each visitor came from (i.e., the website you visited prior to coming to the website) and where each visitor goes to from the website (i.e., the website you visit after leaving ours).
A cookie is stored on your device for no longer than required which is linked to your IP address. Cookies are small text files that your web browser stores on your device. This allows us to track whether you return to the Website.

The data is aggregated and anonymised, which means we cannot identify you as an individual.

We use specific tools to carry out this analysis, including Google Analytics.
