First-Party Cookies (Shopify)
A first-party cookie is a cookie that is set on the domain you are currently visiting (in this instance https://www.beezkneezuk.com). Our website is powered by Shopify and issues first-party cookies. If you were to disable first-party cookies, this would affect the functionality of our website and could not keep track of your activity as you move from page to page. For example, you would be unable to purchase multiple items online in the same transaction. Each time you added something to the cart from another page on the site, it would be treated as a new order.Shopify https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy
