What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, that is saved automatically to your computer, phone or other web enabled device when you visit websites like www.finefoodstore.co.uk. This is standard practice for all websites.

When you visit a website, that site's computer asks your computer, phone or other web enabled device for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. 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 sites. Browsers are usually set to accept cookies. However, if you would prefer not to receive cookies, you may alter the configuration of your browser to refuse and disable cookies.

Are Cookies Safe?

Yes, the information stored in cookies is safe and anonymous. They are not harmful and do not contain any confidential information, which could personally identify you, such as your home address, date of birth or credit card details, so your personal information is secure. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or pass on computer viruses.
