What are cookies?
Cookies are small files which are stored on your computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular client and website, and can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer. This allows us to deliver a page tailored for you, or the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next.
If cookies aren't enabled on your computer, it will mean that your shopping experience on our website will be limited to browsing and researching; you won't be able to add products to your basket and buy them.
Why are we explaining all this?
When you visit our website, we will place a session cookie called 'JSESSIONID' on your computer which enables the shopping basket and other core functions of the website to function correctly along with WC_SESSION_ESTABLISHED, WC_ACTIVEPOINTER, WC_AUTHENTICATION_, WC_USERACTIVITY, We feel these cookies are strictly necessary for the website to function fully, without them the website doesn't work properly.
We use Coremetrics to monitor our website. You may see cookies 'cmRS', 'cmTPSet', '90223163_clogin' or '90223163_clogin' from our website. This software helps us take and analyse visitor information such as browser usage, new visitor numbers, response to marketing activity and shopping times. That information helps us to improve the website and your shopping experience, and to make our marketing campaigns relevant.
We use Google Analytics to monitor our websites. Google Analytics aggregates information which means that you can not be identified individually but we can see, for example, which categories of shoes on the website are the most popular or if there is a problem with the basket or checkout process. Google Analytics will place a small number of cookies on your computer with expiry dates ranging from half an hour to 18 months - all these cookies will begin "__utm" and will be from our website.

Barratts is committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information you provide us on our website. We believe it is important for you to know what information we collect and how we treat the information you share with us. The following policy will explain how your personal information will be treated as you use our website and its features. 'Personal Information' includes your name, physical address, e-mail address(es), telephone numbers, credit card information and other similar information that you provide to us. We do not sell your Personal Information.
In the instance above, we may ask for your Personal Information in order to provide you the services or offers. In the case of actions listed above, you will be able to 'unsubscribe' to these at any time. It is completely optional for you to register, participate or otherwise provide us with Personal Information in the above situations.
How Your Information is Used
The information you provide helps Barratts understand how you use our website. This allows us to recognise your needs and continue to make the improvements that are important to you and our customers.
Additionally, if you have opted-in to receiving marketing or other information from our third party business partners, you may receive marketing or other communications directly from those third parties. Barratts encourages you to read the privacy policies of each and every third party company and website that collects your Personal Information. However, whether you are receiving mailings directly from us or from our third party business partners, you will be able to 'unsubscribe' to these mailings at any time.
Unsubscribing and Data Removal
If your Personal Information changes (such as post code, phone, e-mail or postal address), or if you no longer desire to be contacted about our products and services, you can correct, update or delete/deactivate your Personal Information at any time. This can be done by e-mailing Barratts. If you have previously unsubscribed or opted-out through the Barratts website but you are still receiving notices, offers or solicitation relating to Barratts, it could be that you initially opted-in to receive information in a manner other than through our website (such as a collection and drawing of business cards held at a Barratts retailer units in which the winner is contacted by e-mail). If this is the case, your desire to unsubscribe may also need to be communicated to the original 'opt-in' source. We take your online privacy very seriously, so if you need any assistance in unsubscribing to future communications please contact Barratts. We will promptly take action to ensure that you are 'opted-out' from receiving any further mailing or other information. Although we will remove your name from our e-mail list as quickly as possible, please recognise that there may be a period of time after you unsubscribe during which you may still receive e-mails from us.
Barratts does not seek to collect Personal Information about children through its website and is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors under the age of 18. Parents should supervise the online activities of their children, and consider the use of tools available from online services and software providers that help provide kid-friendly Internet environments.
