A guide to cookies
Cookies do not store personal information such as card numbers and passwords. Their most common use is to identify whether or not you have been on a website before, which items you looked at and if you placed anything in your basket but did not go through with the transaction.
When you next log on to our Site, your computer or mobile device's stored cookies will send a message to our site to let it know you have been there before. This is why you may notice your basket contains the items you last put in there without buying, or that similar products to those you have purchased in the past pop up as side adverts.
Speedy Services wants to be open with our customers and to reassure you that our cookies are safe and are used to help provide a smoother shopping process for you. Our cookies may appear with the file names of User, Cache, ASP.NET_SessionId and .SHAUTH, so if you spot these on your computer, you will understand why they have been stored there.

For further guidance on how to manage your computer's cookies as well as details of the benefits of allowing them to be stored on your devices, please see the section entitled 'Managing website cookies' below. We hope this information will help you make an informed choice when using our Site.
