Privacy Policy

Cookies, Christmas jumpers, privacy and you.

As a UK site we must now comply with the EU's ePrivacy directive. This means we need to give you clear and comprehensive information about the use of cookies on our site. So here goes.

What Are Cookies? 

A cookie is a small file that is downloaded onto your computer when you visit a website. It allows Babs to recognise and tailor her site to you, as she can a jumper, and it won’t harm your computer.  

Opting Out of Cookies

If you prefer, you can restrict, block or delete cookies by changing your browser settings but that may mean that you won’t be able to add and buy products from our store. And nobody wants that to happen.

What cookies does Babs use?

This is where it gets really boring, really quickly. By 'storefront' we mean all the pages around our site with products on, rather than the checkout pages.
