Cookie Policy

Christys’ London website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with the best possible experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site by identifying possible errors and generic browsing behaviours. All cookies collected by our site are anonymous and will not be used to personally identify you. By continuing to browse the site, you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

A cookie is a small text file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive and that text file is then sent back to the server each time you visit the website with the aim to prepare and optimise the page for you based on your previous activity. For more information about cookies you can visit www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies.

We use the following cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region) and so allow us to customise our site and to provide you with offers that are targeted at your individual interests.
  • Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for the purpose of advertising to you on other sites, these partners will use the cookies as set out in this policy and at all times this data shall remain fully anonymous and specific to your browsing device. Using cookies for this purpose limits the number of times you see an advertisement as well as helping us measure the effectiveness of any advertising campaign.

We also work with Google Analytics and Heap Analytics, which uses cookies to help us analyse how customers use the site and for interest-based advertising (including remarketing) as set out in the 'Targeting cookies' description above. We use Google Analytics to broadly analyse customer preferences on topics such as colour, product category, size, promotions, search terms and checkout methods, to review ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ areas of the site, to assess age and gender demographics and to support stock availability and store location enquiries. The information generated by the cookie(s) during your use of the website (including your IP address) is directly transmitted to and stored by Google. Google then uses this information to review and evaluate your use of the website, providing us with reports and other services relating to website activity and internet usage. For more information on how Google uses data, please visit https://policies.google.com/privacy/partners?hl=en-GB&gl=uk.

You can opt-out of making your site activity available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. This add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) which is running on Christys’ London and other websites from sharing information with Google Analytics about your visit activity. The add-on is available here http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en or if you have a Google account you can also amend your settings at https://adssettings.google.com.

Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.

You can block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our site.
