What is a cookie?

Cookies are usually small text files stored on your computers browser or programmes subfolders when you visit certain web pages. Cookies are created when you use your browser to visit a website that uses cookies to keep track of your basket, help you resume where you left off, remember your registered login, preferences and other functions. The website stores a corresponding file to the one we set in your browser and in this file we can keep track on your activity on our site and any information you may have voluntarily given while visiting the website, such as email address.

Cookies are used by most major websites throughout the world and they cannot be used by themselves to identify you or your personaly information.

What cookies can't do

Cookies are plain text files. They are not compiled so they cannot execute functions or make copies of themselves. They cannot browse through or scan your computer or otherwise snoop on you or dig for private information on your hard disk.

Cookies have a very limited function: to help your browser deliver the full features designed into many of today's websites. These features include smooth login, preference settings, themes, shopping baskets, and many other features. Cookies cannot scan or retrieve your personal information.

Because cookies are just harmless files, or keys, they cannot look into your computer and find out information about you, your family, or read any material kept on your hard-drive. Cookies simply unlock a computer's memory and allow a website to recognise users when they return to a site by opening doors to different content or services. It is technically impossible for cookies to read personal information.
