Cookies Policy

INTRODUCTION

Screwfix uses cookies on this website. This page explains the cookies we use and what we use them for. You can choose to enable or disable them (although some cookies are necessary in order for our website to work properly). There is also information below to explain which other companies use cookies on our website and what they use them for. You can choose to enable or disable these cookies. Please note that you may withdraw your consent to the use of non-essential cookies that are not strictly necessary to operate this website at any time.

For more information about how to do this, and about cookies in general, visit: www.allaboutcookies.org or https://youronlinechoices.eu.

WHAT ARE COOKIES USED FOR ON OUR WEBSITE?

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or device by websites that you visit. They are used by a website to send information to the user's browser, enabling the browser to send information back to the originating site (such as a session identifier or language selection).

Only the sender of a cookie can read or modify the information it contains. You are informed that, during your visits to this site, cookies may be installed on your terminal by Screwfix or its partners.

Cookies may involve the processing of technical data concerning you, such as your IP address or the characteristics of your terminal, as well as browsing data such as the pages visited or your actions on the pages concerned.

Some cookies are essential for using the site (e.g. to save your basket selection), while others are used to improve your browsing experience (e.g. to automatically segment users into groups or categories in order to personalize the display of a page and present the products most likely to interest them), or to compile statistics (e.g. on visitor numbers or conversions for digital advertising campaigns) to help us manage your e-commerce and digital strategy.

Personalized content and advertising, as well as their analysis, involve the sharing of previous, pseudonymous and purchase history data with certain subcontractors or partners.

The lifespan of these cookies varies according to their purpose. Some disappear as soon as you leave the site, while others remain on your terminal equipment until their lifetime expires or until you delete them.

All the cookies used on the Screwfix website, as well as the purposes and validity periods of each cookie, are indicated in this policy and consent management platform.

You are offered the choice of accepting all cookies, setting their parameters or refusing them (with the exception of technical cookies) as soon as you enter the Screwfix website.

You can then deactivate the cookies you have accepted at any time, free of charge, by indicating your preferences in the "manage my cookies" section at the bottom of the site.

WHAT TYPE OF COOKIES ARE USED ON OUR WEBSITE?

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential for the use of the features and services on our website. If you block these cookies, we cannot guarantee access to the services provided through our website or be sure how our website will perform during your visit.

  • Remembering which products you have placed in your shopping basket.
  • Remembering that you are logged in to our website.
  • Remembering information you have entered into forms on our website (so that you don’t have to reenter this information if you use your browser's "back" and "forward" buttons to navigate through a form).

Functional cookies allow our website to remember choices you make, such as your user name, login details or language preferences, and any customizations you make to pages on our website during your visit.

Examples of how we use these cookies include:

Examples of how we use these cookies include:

Screwfix's Marketing and Advertising Cookies

These cookies are used to record which pages you've viewed (including which adverts you've been shown) on our website, and to show you adverts that we think might be of interest to you, based on your browsing history on our website. We also use these cookies to limit the number of times you're shown a particular advert, and to follow up with you if you partially complete an order for products or registration on our website.

Screwfix's Partners' Marketing and Advertising Cookies

These cookies are used by other companies we work with to deliver advertising that is relevant to you on our website and on other websites. They are sometimes called "third-party cookies" because they are set by other companies when you browse our website.

These companies use cookies to build a profile of you based on your browsing history on our website, their own websites and other websites that they work with, as well as on which adverts you've seen and clicked on our website and on other websites.

They may also combine this with other information they collect about you from other sources. They use these profiles to show you relevant adverts, both on our website and on other websites.

These companies may track your browsing across multiple devices, and combine your browsing habits into a single profile that is used to deliver adverts that are relevant to you on all of those devices. They may use a number of different methods to work out whether you use multiple devices, including matching information, browsing history and geolocation.

The use of cookies by our partners is subject to their terms of use, which you can consult on their respective websites.

You can find a full list of the cookies we use, their purpose, their storage period and any third-party with which we share data collected by these cookies by clicking on “Choose Cookies” in our cookie-banner. You can reopen our cookie-banner by clicking on “Cookie Preferences” on the bottom of each page of this Website.
You can find the details of all of the cookies here

CONSENT

On your first visit to our site, you will be given the opportunity to accept or refuse the use of cookies, either in a general way or to configure your choices.

If you do not wish cookies to be installed or read on your terminal equipment, a refusal cookie will be placed on your terminal equipment so that Screwfix can record the information that you have objected to the use of cookies. Similarly, when you accept the use of cookies, a consent cookie is installed on your terminal equipment.

Your refusal to install a cookie is taken into account by the deposit of a cookie. Consequently, if you deactivate all cookies on your terminal or if you change terminal, we will no longer know that you have chosen this option.

These refusal or consent cookies remain on your terminal equipment for a period of (6) months.

You can manage your preferences at any time, free of charge, by clicking on "Manage cookies" at the bottom of any page on the site.

Furthermore, if your terminal is used by several people, and when the same terminal has several browsers, we cannot be certain that the services and advertisements intended for your terminal equipment correspond to your own use of this terminal equipment and not to that of another user of this terminal equipment.

You are free to choose whether or not to share the use of your terminal equipment with others, and you are responsible for configuring your browser settings with regard to cookies and other tracers.

HOW CAN I MANAGE THE USE OF COOKIES ON THIS WEBSITE?

The user has the option to configure or reject the installation of cookies on their device by adjusting the browser settings (which can apply to all cookies, not just those from this Website) or, more conveniently, through our consent management application (for cookies from this Website).

BROWSER: The user can choose to configure or reject the installation of cookies on their device at any time by adjusting the settings of the browser installed on their terminal. Although the process of configuring these options varies in each browser, it is common to find cookie settings under the "Preferences" or "Tools" menu of the browser. More detailed information about cookie settings in the browser can be accessed through the browser's "Help" menu.

Alternatively, after each session, the user can delete some or all of the stored cookies through the browser settings. However, disabling some cookies may affect your ability to enjoy certain Site features.

Similarly, the user can enable two types of browsing: private browsing, where the browser does not save browsing history, passwords, or information about visited pages; or the user can activate the "Do Not Track" feature, which prevents the browser from tracking their browsing habits.

CONSENT MANAGER: Additionally, the user has the option to manage cookie administration through the consent manager via this link where a configuration pop-up will open, allowing you to accept, reject, or choose the categories of cookies you want to accept (by moving the "slider" behind each type of cookie to accept or reject and then clicking the "Save Settings" button).

Please note that if you accept third-party cookies, you will need to delete them through the browser options or the system provided by the third party.

If you have any question about the Cookies Policy, you can contact us by post at to Responsable Conformite Donnees, Screwfix, Rue du Plouvier, 59175 Templemars, France, or via email at eudata@screwfix.eu

In any case, regarding our cookies, the processing of your data will comply with our Privacy Policy, which you can consult here

PRIVACY POLICY

When using cookies, Screwfix may process personal data about you, as the data controller. Our partners' cookies used on our site depend on external processors who may, if you accept these cookies, process your personal data.

The issue and use of these cookies by our partners are subject to their own privacy and data protection policies.

The data collected is essential for achieving the objectives pursued by each cookie. It is intended solely for use by Screwfix’s authorized departments and the companies issuing the partner cookies.

Their processing is carried out on the legal basis of the user's consent, which may be withdrawn at any time, in accordance with the procedures set out in this policy.

Personal data collected via cookies is never kept for longer than is necessary to achieve the purpose of the cookie, and in no case for longer than 13 months.

In the case of audience measurement tracers that may be exempted from the requirement to obtain consent, the information collected via these tracers may be kept for a maximum of 25 months.

In addition, digital activities based on the use of trackers involve several partners and types of resources located at the global level. Thus, the acceptance of trackers results in data processing based on pseudonymized data in countries outside the European Economic Area, namely the United States.

Under these conditions, we pay particular attention to securing appropriate safeguards for the protection of your personal data in accordance with the law, in particular by choosing countries that are considered to offer an adequate level of protection (e.g. the United Kingdom) and through the European Commission's standard contractual clauses.

If you would like to find out more about how we process your personal data and how to exercise your data protection rights, in particular with regard to access, rectification or deletion, we invite you to consult our privacy policy
