What are Cookies
You can find a technical explanation of cookies from Wikipedia here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_cookie A more simple definition is that cookies are bits of website code that perform a range of functions for you, 'the user' and us, 'the site', from remembering what's in a user's basket, what currency they like through to telling us how many people visited in a day, and what was purchased. They also help you share content, for example, if you are logged into Facebook, a cookie means that when you come to our site and 'like' something, you don't have to log into Facebook again.
