They are also used after you have logged on as part of that process. You can turn off cookies within your browser by going to ‘Tools | Internet Options | Privacy’ and selecting to block cookies. If you turn off cookies, you will be unable to place orders or benefit from the other features that use cookies. We use cookies to record session information, such as items that consumers add to their shopping cart & to ensure that visitors are not repeatedly sent the same banner ads.

Please note: Cookie laws have changed with effect from 26th May 2011.
On 26th May 2011, new laws came into force in the UK that affect most web sites. If cookies are used in a site, the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) (Amendment) Regulations 2011 (UK Regulations) provide that certain information must be given to that site’s visitors and the user must give his or her consent to the placing of the cookies.

Websitementor  believes it complies with the new rules by asking site visitors to expressly confirm that they are happy for us to remember their details.

The regulations coming into force on May 26, 2012 (deferred from 2011) need us to tell you about how we use cookies and provide you with a method of accepting or rejecting our use of them.
