We appreciate that technological jargon can be confusing so have set about making things easy to understand in terms of cookies and how they actually relate to your usage on our website.
What is a cookie?
Put simply, a cookie is a piece of information in the form of a very small text file that is placed on your hard drive when browsing the internet. This is generated by a web server, which is basically the computer that operates a web site. The information the cookie contains is set by LFC Bootroom and can be used as notification for whenever anyone visits our site. A cookie can be thought of as an internet user's identification card, which is a friendly reminder to inform us when a customer has returned to our site.
What is the purpose of a cookie?
To enhance your user experience on our website, cookies make the interaction between users and websites faster and easier. Without cookies, it would be very difficult for LFC Bootroom customers to fill up a shopping cart or to remember your user preferences or registration details.
What does a cookie look like?
A typical cookie will look like:
Are cookies dangerous?
No, they are quite simply small pieces of text which are not computer programs and cannot be executed as code. More importantly they are unable to be used to disseminate viruses, and browsers allow users to set their own limitations to the number of cookies saved on their hard drives.
Can cookies threaten users' privacy?
Cookies are stored on the computer's hard drive but they cannot access the hard drive - therefore a cookie cannot read other information saved on the hard drive, or gain access to a user's contact details. They only contain and transfer to the server as much information as the users themselves have disclosed to a certain web site.
