What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a small file, often including a unique identifier, that is sent to your device’s browser from a web server and is stored on your device's hard drive. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.
On the biltong.co.uk website, cookies record information about items you have added to the basket, and the username of the customer who is currently logged in. Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at all. If you choose to receive no cookies whatsoever, you will not be able to add items to your shopping basket or complete a transaction. Also certain personalised features cannot then be provided to that user, and accordingly they may not be able to take full advantage of all of the website's features. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

The anonymous information the cookies collect includes the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they visited. To disable this type of cookie, some browsers will indicate when a cookie is being sent and allow you to decline cookies on a case-by-case basis.
