Remember me on this device
The 'Remember Me on this Device' function
When you log in to our website, you will see a 'remember me on this device' checkbox, alongside a brief description of this functionality. Should you tick this checkbox, we will remember part of your account information and what you had in your basket for when you next visit the site on the device and browser you are using when you tick the checkbox. We will still require you to enter your password when accessing sensitive areas of the site, such as your account section, or the checkout process.

If you do activate the 'remember me on this device' checkbox on a device, and subsequently do not have access to it, your account will remain secure. Other users on that device will not be able to access your detailed account information, or checkout, without entering your password. Please be aware that some browsers and devices may save passwords if you prompt them to, and that if you lose access to a device which you have saved your password on before, we always recommend resetting your password.
