The Barnes Atelier Limited ("us", "we", or "our") uses cookies on our website at  www.barnesatelier.com ("Website"). By using our Website, you consent to the use of cookies.

Please take a moment to read and understand this Cookie Notice. It should also be read in conjunction with our Privacy Notice and our website Terms of Use.

Our Cookies Notice explains what cookies are, how we use cookies, how third-parties we may partner with may use cookies on our Website, your choices regarding cookies and further information about cookies.

What Are Cookies

Cookies are small pieces of text sent to your browser by a website you visit. A computer asks permission for a cookie file to be stored in your computer’s web browser and receive information from it. Cookies can be used for many different functions including auto-filling contact and signup forms, counting visitors, storing shopping basket items, personalising content, targeting advertising, recording user preferences and for authentication and security. All of these allow a website you visit to recognise you in some form and make your next visit easier and more useful to you.

Cookies can be "persistent" or "session" cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your personal computer or mobile device when you go offline, while session cookies are deleted as soon as you close your web browser.

For more information on cookies and similar technologies you can visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

How We Use Cookies

When you use and access our Website, we may place a number of cookies files in your web browser.

We use cookies for the following purposes:

  • To enable certain functions of our Website

  • To provide analytics

  • To store your preferences

We use both session and persistent cookies on our Website and we use different types of 1st and 3rd-party cookies to run our Website:

Essential/FUNCTIONAL or Strictly Necessary cookies

We use cookies that are necessary for the proper running of our Website, such as signing into your account, showing the visitor items added to their cart, responding to visitor requests for services, and other functions.

Performance and Analytics cookies 

We use performance and analytics cookies to track information about how our Website is used, which pages are most visited, traffic sources and other website management, so that we can make improvements. We may also use analytics cookies to test new advertisements, pages, features or new functionality of our Website to see how our users react to them.

What Cookies Do We Use?

Squarespace (essential and non-essential cookies)

For information about viewing the cookies dropped on your device, visit About the cookies Squarespace uses.

 Our site is configured to disable Squarespace analytics and performance cookies unless you click on ‘Accept Cookies’ on the Cookie Notice.

Google Recaptcha (essential)

We use Google reCAPTCHA on our contact forms, which is a tool that distinguishes humans from spambots. It prompts visitors to check a box verifying that they’re not a robot, and sometimes asks visitors to complete another task, like identify a string of letters. Most spambots can’t do this, but your human visitors should have no trouble.

Google Analytics with Anonymized Ip (non-essential)

We use Google Analytics with Anonymized IP tracking cookies to view information on new and returning visitors to our Website, like where our users are based, what pages are most popular, and which pages need improvement — all in an effort to evaluate our overall website performance and interest level to make it better suited to our audience.

Our site is configured to disable BOTH Squarespace analytics and performance cookies AND Google Analytics cookies until you click on ‘Accept Cookies’ on the Cookie Notice.

For more information on how Google Analytics uses your information, please visit https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites?hl=en-GB&gl=uk

You can opt out and prevent Google Analytics from using your information across this Website and all websites by installing their browser plugin here https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout


What Happens If I Don’t Want To Accept Your Cookies?

If you don’t wish to accept our cookies you can still continue to use our website but it means we won’t be able to use your visit to help us improve your experience.

It also means the cookie notice will continue to be visible as it takes a cookie to remember that you don’t want to accept cookies.
