What are cookies?
Cookies are used by websites to send information to a Users' browser and for the browser to return information to the website. Each Cookie is unique to your web browser and it will contain information such as the identification of a User session and will remember your User preferences and shopping basket contents.
It may be reassuring to note that Cookies cannot be programmed, cannot carry viruses, and cannot install malware on your computer. However, they can be used to track users' browsing activities which was one of the major privacy concerns that prompted European and US law makers to take action.
