If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


When someone visits our website we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. This tells us how many visitors come to the various parts of the website. The method of processing this information does not enable Google Analytics to identify anyone and we do not permit Google to try and find out the identities of visitors to our site.

Google Analytics only provides us with generalised “quantity” information such as how people visit each page on the website and how long they stay on a page. This information allows us to keep our website relevant and appealing to all customer and visitors.

Full details on the cookies set by Google Analytics are published on the Google website here.

This website uses Google Analytics to help analyse how our visitors use the site. The tool uses “cookies,” which are text files placed on your computer, to collect standard Internet log information and visitor behaviour information in an anonymous form. The cookie is used to store information, such as what time the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before, and what site referred the visitor to the web page. A different cookie is used for each website, and visitors are not tracked across multiple sites. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including IP address) is transmitted to Google. This information may then be used to evaluate visitors’ use of the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity for The Crafty Kitten.

To disable this type of cookie, some browsers will indicate when a cookie is being sent and allow you to decline cookies on a case-by-case basis. In addition to declining cookies, you can also install the Google Analytics Opt-out Add-on in your browser, which prevents Google Analytics from collecting information about your website visits.

Learn more about the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on and other Google Analytics privacy information.

We will never (and will not allow any third party to) use the statistical analytics tool to track or to collect any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of visitors to our site. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Neither we nor Google will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any Personally Identifiable Information from any source, unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form on our website.

Who we share your data with

We can assure you that at no time do we rent, buy or sell mailing lists. This means with two exceptions, that we would never share or sell the data you have provided us with any other company for any purpose whatsoever.

The first exception to this is that we would, if requested provide information to the tax authorities to provide records of sales – we would only do this when legally required to do so however and it is not usual practice.

The second exception is that we provide our shipping or delivery partners with the delivery address, email and telephone number for any orders that you place with us that they are delivering. The sole purpose of doing this is to, obviously, facilitate the delivery of the order you have placed.
