OUR COOKIES POLICY

To make full use of the online shopping and personalised features on johnlewis.com, your computer, tablet or mobile phone will need to accept cookies, as we can only provide you with certain personalised features of this website by using them.

Our cookies don't store sensitive information such as your name, address or payment details: they simply hold the 'key' that, once you're signed in, is associated with this information. However, if you'd prefer to restrict, block or delete cookies from johnlewis.com, or any other website, you can use your browser to do this. Each browser is different, so check the 'Help' menu of your particular browser (or your mobile phone's handset manual) to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

Here's a list of the main cookies we use, and what we use them for. You'll find information about 3rd party cookies here.

AdTrack, Affiliate, TD cookies

These cookies show us how you found our website and which website you came from. This helps us know which of our online marketing channels is most effective, and enable us to reward some external websites for directing you to us.

AJAXA cookie

We use this to determine if your web browser supports some of the features of our checkout that make it quicker and easier to complete your purchase.

ASP.NET_SessionId cookie

This cookie allows our web servers to respond to your actions on the website such as "Add to basket" or browsing the website. The website wouldn't work for you without it.

atgPlatoStop and fs_nocache_guid

These cookies enable the Request a call function on the website.

BasketXML and CookieID cookies

The items that are in your shopping basket on the website are stored in this cookie. Your shopping basket wouldn't work without it.

Bluekai cookie

This cookie creates profiles through the use of cross-device/cross-context technology (such as statistical IDs), or other unique identifiers provided by you (such as mobile-device IDs) to learn about your journey across the John Lewis Partnership. This information is used in order to help show you more relevant marketing content.

Normally if you don’t visit our website for 90 days your cookies would expire, meaning we're unable to personalise your experience. To enable us to maintain your personalised experience for longer, we take part in a programme run by Oracle Bluekai whereby some cookies will not expire after 90 days, if in that period you browse the website of the other retailers and brands taking part in the same programme.

If you do not wish this to happen, you can opt out by using the Oracle Opt Out Tool (opens in a new window). This will add an opt-out cookie, preventing further tracking by the same cookie on your device. Please note though, if you delete all your cookies, you would also remove the opt-out cookie and this would require you to repeat the Oracle opt-out process. For further information, please refer to the Oracle BlueKai website and also our 'Managing Cookies' section.
