The collection of information
Every time you log on to our website your IP (Internet Protocol) address registers on our servers. Your IP address reveals no information other than the number assigned to you. We do not use this technology to get any personal data against your knowledge or free will (i.e., automatically recording e-mail addresses of visitors). Nor do we use it for any purpose other than to help us monitor traffic on our website, or (in case of criminal activity or misuse of our information) to cooperate with law enforcement.
Over time we may use a number of different cookies on our site. If you do not know what cookies are, or how to control or delete them, then we recommend you visit http://www.aboutcookies.org for detailed guidance.

This is a useful article on the cookies set by WordPress:
There may be occasional third-party cookies used – for instance where we embed a YouTube film (we haven’t yet!) or where we add social media buttons creating links to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. – and you should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on this website.
You should check the respective policies of each of relevant sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.
We use a session cookie to remember your log-in for you and what you’ve put in the shopping basket. These we deem strictly necessary to the working of the website. If these are disabled, then various functionality on the site will be broken.
Cookies are used by WooCommerce in a variety of ways.
Cookies depend on specific features that are enabled on a store. The cookies are active when a user interacts with one of these features or to allow admin functions to be performed from within the store’s dashboard.
Details are provided in tables below, listing various cookies that are set for users of stores with the WooCommerce plugin installed in our WordPress site but there may be more set by the underlying plugins that WordPress uses. If you are worried please don’t use the site and simply contact us directly for samples and fabric orders.
