Cookies collect standard Internet log information and visitor behaviour in an anonymous form. They allow a website to recognise users when they return to a site. At Classic Carbs UK we take our responsibility seriously to ensure that using our site and shopping with us is safe and secure.

We use cookies to monitor usage of this website. By using cookies we can see the products and services you are interested in when you browse this website, which enables us to personalise your visit and make it more user-friendly for you.  Most of this is done by the automated website platform technology our site is built on (WordPress).

We do  use specialised analytics partners – such as Google Analytics – to gather certain information about how you, our visitor, browses and searches our site. To do this our site places cookies on your computer that automatically collects information on our behalf.  By logging in to our Google Analytics we can then see things such as a) how long our visitors stay on our website  – which gives us an idea of whether they found the site interesting or not.   Another example b)  what language a visitor was using to search – which prompted us to install the language translation facility we now have on our site.   We use this analytics information to constantly improve our services and your experience.  On occasion, we also use Facebook advertising which uses a cookie.

Usage of certain cookies on our site is essential to it working  properly.  A number of important parts of this website will not function if cookies are not enabled.
