Cookies Explained

E-commerce stores require that your computer accepts a session cookie.  This session cookie contains simply the session id number which identifies you to the store as separate from other visitors.  The session cookie contains no personal identity information and in itself is thus anonymous because a third party cannot use anything in the cookie to identify you in any way.

In a traditional configuration and by definition, this session cookie expires at the end of your session in the browser or at a pre-defined time (typically 24 minutes) after your last click, whichever is sooner. 

ideas-4-pets believe that we conform to the new EU Cookie Directive which came into force on 26th May 2012.

Sessions Explained

The session id is used only to recognise what you have done during your visit to our store.  This includes things like whether you have put something in your shopping basket or whether you have logged in and it allows you to proceed to the checkout.
