Cookies are small files that get downloaded to your PC when you visit websites.
They are a normal part of the way browsers and the internet work, but various laws made by non technical people force us to try and explain what they are to you.
Why they specifically want us to explain just cookies is a mystery to me, as why not force us to explain the difference between encrypted traffic and un-encrypted traffic is, or why passwords encrpyted with MD5 encryption can be broken pretty easily unless they are very long, I just don’t know?
There are so many things that you should know about the internet that impact your privacy, like how to stay safe from viruses, how to avoid phishing emails etc. Note too, that the technical people in governments intercept lots of stuff to track terrorists or other reasons that they wont tell us about.
But the cookies on your site are not really going to cause you any big issues, cookies are used on this site in relation to analysing traffic and tracking whether you actually bought something after visiting this site.
You may not like that idea, of us getting paid because we produced something for you for free, that is fine you can turn cookies off. Rather than explain how to do that – just go to your favourite search engine and search for ‘how do I turn off cookies in my browser’.
If you do turn cookies off, then things might not work quite right, so don’t complain as we really won’t care.
