The types of Cookies we use
We use the following types of cookies on LloydsPharmacy.com:
- Session Cookies - Session cookies enable us to keep track of your movement through the website and allow you to use the site quickly and easily without having to re-enter information. For example, they allow us to remember what you add to your shopping basket to enable you to transact without having to re-enter all your choices again at the checkout. Without session cookies, if you click 'checkout', the new page would not recognise your past activities on all prior pages and your shopping basket would always remain empty.

They enable us to authenticate who you are once you register and to remember your preferences the next time you visit the site. This gives you faster and more convenient access each time you visit our site.
