Cookie Policy

This cookies policy describes the way in which the Site stores or accesses information on the device that you use in order to access the Site.

By using the Site, you are providing your consent to Clintons storing and using cookies and web beacons in accordance with this cookies policy.  However, you can adjust the settings on the browser you use to view the Site to remove or limit the types of cookies that it accepts. More information about this is set out in the section ‘Managing Cookies’ below.

What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer, mobile or another device that you are using to access that website, so that the website can remember and identify it.  They contain anonymous information and will typically include the name of the domain from which the cookie has come; the "lifetime" of the cookie; and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.

They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.  For example they enable a website to identify that when you move from one page to another you are not a new user and so do not need to log on again.

Some websites will also use cookies to enable them to target their advertising or marketing based for example, on your location or browsing habits.

Cookies can be set by the owner of the website itself (‘first party cookies’) or by other websites that provide content (such as advertising) for the website that you are viewing (‘third party cookies’).

To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

How the Site uses Cookies

We may send a cookie which may be stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. We may also use that information to recognise your computer when you visit our Site, and to personalise our Site for you.

Some cookies used on the Site are temporary and remain on your device until you leave the Site, at which point they are deleted. These are often called session cookies. Session cookies are typically used on the Site to allow you to carry information across pages of the Site and avoid having to re-enter information, and to allow you to access stored information whilst you are logged into a user account on the Site.

Other cookies used on the Site remain on your device once you have left the Site (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). These are often called persistent cookies. Persistent cookies are typically used on the Site to help it recognise your device when you return to it, and to help us improve the structure of the Site by compiling anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how users use the Site.

The cookies used by the Site can be grouped into three categories.

Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of the Site. They allow our web servers to respond to your actions on the Site and whilst browsing it. The Site will not work for you without these cookies.

Analytical cookies. These cookies allow us to see how visitors move around the Site when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way the Site works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily, and also to analyse the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.

Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to the Site in order to remember your preferences, and also allow us to provide certain aspects of the Site’s functionality.

Here's a list of the cookies we use on the Site, and what we use them for.
