Do we use ‘cookies’?
Your shopping cart contents are stored in “cookies.” A cookie is a small file placed on your computer’s hard drive by a web site. As you shop, the “cookie” records each purchase and the price in your shopping cart. Without the cookies, the shopping cart cannot “remember” all of your items. As a result each time you leave the cart to continue shopping, the items disappear. Cookies will also remember the items added to your cart so when you return at a later time they will still be there. We simply create a cookie to store the items in your shopping cart.
We collect Device Information using the following technologies:
“Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

You do this through your browser (like Internet Explorer or Google Chrome) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser’s Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. You can also use the Cookie Bar at the bottom of any page to either “Accept” or disable cookies but keep in mind, if you disable the essential cookies, some features will be disabled that make your site experience more efficient and some of our services will not function properly.
