Cookie Policy

This website (showerspares.com) is operated by National Shower Spares Ltd.

National Shower Spares ("we" or "us") is part of the Travis Perkins plc group (the "Group"). We are committed to protecting your privacy. We use cookies on this website to enable visitors to have the best possible experience. We collect analytics information to find things out, such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the website or how our website is performing for our customers. We also use cookies to personalise content and services and to provide additional functionality.

This Cookie Policy tells you more about our use of cookies and the choices you have. The table below provides further details about the cookies that are currently in use on our website and a description of the purpose of each of these cookies.


What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that websites place on your computer, mobile phone, tablet, or other device. They remember that you have visited the website before. They make it easier for you to maintain your preferences and they enable certain features of the website to work, such as the shopping basket. They may also tailor the information or adverts you see on the site. This is important to us because we want to make sure our website is as user-friendly as possible, ensuring you have a good experience when browsing or purchasing with us online.

In addition to the cookies managed by us and our service providers, some cookies are set by other companies that are part of wider advertising networks. Travis Perkins Group websites may use cookies from a list of known partners (such as Google DoubleClick, Microsoft Bing, User Conversion, MediaIQ, Increasingly, Quantcast, Monetate, Redeye, Appnexus) to provide you with advertising tailored to your preferences both on this and other websites - however there is no advertising on this website specifically. We are providing this information to you as part of our policy and comply with the law relating to the use of cookies and other information storage technology operating on websites.


Types of cookies

Session cookies: These are stored while you're browsing. They are deleted from your device automatically when you close your browser.

Persistent cookies: These are saved on your device for a certain length of time, so they don't get automatically deleted when you close your browser. They are instead removed when they expire or if you manually delete them first. We use persistent cookies when we need to remember who you are from one visit to the next, for example when you select certain preferences.

Cookie Category What is it?
Strictly Necessary Cookies These cookies perform a variety of functions, such as keeping a visitor logged in to their account, retaining items in the shopping basket, ensuring information is displayed correctly on the website and recording whether visitors have accepted the use of cookies. This bracket also includes security cookies that help to prevent attacks on the website, such as attempts to steal information a visitor enters on website forms. They also help to identify fraudulent activity.
Functional Cookies These cookies enable automated email services to work and to enable visitors to see the correct view of the website, for example if different versions are being tested. They are also used for the management of orders, collections and deliveries, as well as helping to manage product reviews, surveys, live chat facilities and videos where applicable.
Performance Cookies These cookies record a visitor's progress through a browsing session for problem solving and to identify errors in the use of the site that the visitor may experience. They also link a visitor's actions with website usage and performance. Some cookies identify the visitor's IP address, browser and device type. We use analytics to assess how visitors use the website, to understand how visitors arrived at the site (e.g. using keyword searches), to monitor how long visitors remain on the website and when they return, and to control website traffic at busy times.
Targeting Cookies These cookies monitor how visitors to the website respond to adverts and to ensure that adverts are targeted to the visitor's preferences, both on this website and on other websites. They are also used to send emails in reaction to on-site behaviour, i.e. reminders about items left in the shopping basket. If you select a location or indicate other preferences, a cookie will remember that information.
Social Media Cookies These cookies track the products viewed by a visitor to the website and may serve similar adverts on when the user visits their Facebook and Twitter page. Other cookies enable visitors to share or "like" items on our website using social media buttons.
