The Kickers guide to cookies (not the choc chip variety)

Like most websites, ours uses cookies to improve the way it shows you things, and to make access easier for you. Cookies are small files of letters or numbers that, with your permission, we put on your computer. Some stay on it for a while, others disappear the minute you close the browser.

Here are the three cookie varieties we use to help improve your experience on

Session cookies

are like a token, recording things like page or product selections as you move through the site, so you don’t keep getting asked about things you’ve already told us. Session cookies (and the information they record) are erased when you close your browser after a surfing session.

Tracking cookies

help us remember your details and settings for when you come back to our website in the future, which means you get easier, faster access. They stay on your hard drive until you delete them or they expire (they have various expiry dates).

Web analytics cookies
