A cookie is a small file that's stored on your computer by a website to remember certain information. Cookies can be used for many purposes, some of which are essential to the way our website works.
Cookies cannot read information stored on the hard drive of your computer. They cannot be used to spread viruses, cannot access your email address and will only transfer data which you have disclosed to the website.
To be able to place an order on this website you will need to have cookies enabled – which, because it is the standard setting in most web browsers, should require no action on your part. If you have disabled cookies then our website will work perfectly well for browsing and choosing products but you will not be able to order from us online. We are always happy to take orders over the ‘phone if you prefer.
- To allow you to log in, add products to your basket and check out.
- To allow you to log in and access your account information (including order history).
- To allow you to display your previously viewed products, so you can easily find them again.
- To help with fraud detection & prevention.
- To track customer behaviour on the site, such as the pages you visited and where you left our site. This helps us to improve our website and your browsing experience. This information isn’t linked to any of your personal details and doesn’t let us identify you. It may help us create personal product recommendations on our website and in marketing emails.
You have the right to request your account and associated data be Deleted completely by Mulberry Bush and associated third parties. If you do decide to exercise this right please be aware that all purchase history will be deleted and therefore it may invalidate guarantees for any products purchased. Please note that it will also be impossible for us to guarantee we that we do not mail you again – therefore it is possible that we will still mail you. This is because occasionally we purchase data from third parties and if we do not hold your details we cannot suppress your address against those files.
Alternatively we are able to mark your account as Opted Out from marketing information (eg our catalogue). This means we would not delete your account but we would be able to ensure that neither we nor any related third parties mailed you any marketing information. We can also more easily validate your product guarantees.
If you wish to Opt Out from marketing information you can do so by phoning us on 01403 790796 or by emailing us at [email protected] (please include “Opt Out” in the email title and include your name and address in the email)
If you wish for your account to be Deleted please either ‘phone us on 01403 790796 or email us at [email protected] (please include “Delete My Account” in the email title and include your name and address in the email)
