When you visit this website (as with most websites) our webserver collects some details about you such as your IP address, your browser and operating system and the date and time of your visit. It does not, however collect any personal information that identifies you as an individual.

Any information that you send directly to us via e-mail or the enquiry form or any other method is treated as completely confidential and is never ever passed on to a third party without your express permission.


A Cookie is a tiny text file put onto your computer by websites that you visit which stores information about what you do on that site. Most websites use cookies of one sort or another for example  to store your preferences such as what sort of products you like to buy in online stores or whether you’re logged into a site or not.

Most cookies do not store any sort of identifiable information about you. Think about them as footprints in the sand – you can see where you’ve been but can’t tell much about you as an individual.

Cookies on this website

We use cookies in several ways.

Firstly, to store login and password details of anyone who registers with the site.

Secondly, if you leave a comment on one of the News items then the form creates a cookie to store your name and email address whilst you’re visiting the site to make leaving further comments quicker.

Thirdly, as you move through the shop pages and put items in your shopping cart, the website remembers what items are in there and also remembers items that you’ve recently looked at.

If you would prefer that no cookies are set at all by this website then you are able to block them entirely via your browser.  We would urge caution doing this as the Matthew Luke shop will not work without them.
