Cookie policy

We, Pharmacy2U Limited, run our website at pharmacy2u.co.uk (our site). Our site uses cookies to distinguish you from other users. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our site and allows us to improve our site. By continuing to browse our site, you are agreeing to us using cookies.

Protecting our customers and their information is very important to us. This means that the cookies on our site will not collect your personal information. However, we do use cookies on our site to help make your visits more effective, so we'd like to explain more about how and why we use them. A cookie cannot read information from your hard drive or read cookie files created by other websites. Using cookies is an industry standard that can be found on most major websites.

We can change the use of cookies at any time and for any reason. Any changes will be displayed on our site and will take effect straight away. If you continue to use our site after any changes are made, you are considered to accept those changes.

Cookies make websites work better

Cookies are small text files which websites, and sometimes emails, place on your device. They provide useful information to companies, which helps in all sorts of ways. For you, it means you can use our site more efficiently and save time by not having to re-enter your details each time you visit. For us, cookies help us to analyse how our customers use our website so we can make improvements.

We use three types of cookies on our site.

  • Session cookies that are deleted after each visit. They do not store any personal information and are deleted when you close your web browser.
  • Permanent cookies that remain on your device after you have closed your browser. These cookies allow us to recognise you and remember your preferences next time you visit our site.
  • Third-party cookies that are used by our approved business partners.

Certain cookies are necessary for you to use our site. Other cookies are not essential but do help to improve your experience while using our site. You can delete the cookies from your browser at any time if you want to (see below for more information on how to do this), but this will restrict the functions that you're able to carry out on our site.

Our cookies fall into the following categories.

Strictly necessary cookies: These are cookies that are needed for our site to work properly. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log in to secure areas of our site. These will usually be session cookies (see above).

Analytical/performance cookies: These cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors to our site, and to see how visitors move around our site when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our site works (for example, by making sure that users can easily find what they are looking for). We use cookies to produce visitor statistics such as:

  • how many people have visited our site;
  • how visitors reached our site;
  • what type of technology visitors are using (for example, Mac or Windows), which helps us to identify when our site isn't working as it should for particular technologies;
  • how long visitors spend on our site;
  • what pages visitors look at;

and so on.

This helps us to continuously improve our site.

Functionality cookies: These are used to recognise you when you return to our site. This means that you do not need to log in each time you visit our site.

Targeting cookies: These cookies record your visit to our site, the pages you have visited, and the links you have followed. We and third parties use this information to make our site, and the advertising on it, more relevant to you.

Advertisements displayed on our site may be provided through an advertising-management company. When you view a web page that contains advertising provided by an advertising-management company, that company may place a cookie on, or collect a cookie from, your device (if you have enabled cookies).

Please note that third parties may also use cookies, which we have no control over. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.
