What are cookies

Unfortunately the cookies we use every day on our website are not of the chocolate chip variety. The cookies we use on shoppingnerd.co.uk, like virtually all other websites, are tiny text files stored on your computer when you visit certain web pages. We use cookies to keep track of what you put in your basket, and so we remember you when you come back to the site..

If you want to order things from shoppingnerd.com, you need to have cookies enabled (see Managing Cookies). It's still possible to browse our site and use it to research purchases without cookies enabled. Browsers generally automatically enable our cookies – but you can find help on how to turn on cookies if they are not enabled in the Managing Cookies section.

Cookies don't damage your computer and we won't store anything that could identify you – such as credit card details – in our cookies. Just like almost every other website, we simply use cookies to improve your experience on shoppingnerd.co.uk. For example, if you've put an Xbox in your basket, we might use a cookie to show you some games that would go with the console.

We do sometimes work with some of our closest suppliers who may also set cookies during your visit. We always select and monitor these partners extremely carefully. They set cookies to show you different products and services based on what you've been searching for. But if you'd prefer to opt out, you can go to the Network Advertising Initiative website.

All this information is supplied to you in order that we comply with latest legislation on cookies. You can find out more about the law on cookies from the Information Commissioner Office website. We also like to be as up front as possible about how we deliver your service. As ever, we continue to assess our performance in this regard and are constantly working to make improvements.
