WHAT EXACTLY IS A COOKIE?
A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or what’s in your shopping basket or which pages you have visited on the site.
HOW TO TURN OFF COOKIES
Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; at Charles Edwards.com it will not affect the functionality of the website at all and you will still enjoy the same rich functions as other users.
