Cookie Policy

Cookies are small files that are saved to your device’s internet browser to track and store information about your usage of our website.  Some of the cookies are necessary to help to website to work properly.  For example, cookies are used to keep items in your shopping basket as you move from one page to another – if the basket emptied itself every time you changed pages, you would not be able to check out!  Some of the cookies are used for statistical purposes, to help us understand which pages are most popular with visitors and how long people spend looking at them. 

We at Tiny Pioneer don’t actually put any cookies here ourselves.  However, the third party services we use to host our store, analyse our traffic, and take payment for your orders might all use cookies.

  • Stripe, which we use to collect credit and debit card payments.
