Don’t be sucked into the paranoia about cookies. You can safely ignore the following explanations, unless you are using a computer that is shared with other people.
Concerns about Cookies:
Worries about the use of computer “cookies” and privacy have been blown out of proportion. They are simply text files that are stored on the computer you are using and no one can see them but you and the site that put them there. The web site you are visiting typically uses them to “remember” your login information, settings you may have chosen for that site, products you have viewed or purchased and information on other sites you have visited, etc.
Cookies cannot, by themselves, be used to identify you or to reveal any information about you. They are specific to a computer, but not to any person. There are no known instances where the use of a computer cookie has compromised any person’s privacy.
Cookies are very small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit some websites.
You can disable cookies from being stored on your computer, but these may stop our website from functioning properly. You can also delete any or all cookies stored on your computer. (See below for further information.)
