Heather J. Haddad,
Congratulations on taking the first step to compliance. With so much uncertainty regarding cookie law and the EU e-Privacy Directive you’ve done the most important thing by actually taking action to inform your users about the cookies used on your site.
Your policy is at the bottom of this email but it’s important to remember that this is the smaller part of a bigger picture. We’ve also created a short series of Cookie Law emails to ensure that you are informed. To enable this email series simply click the link you will find in an email that we’ve just sent you with the subject “Subscribe for Cookie Law Updates”.

The Cookies We Set
Third Party Cookies
Several partners advertise on our behalf and affiliate tracking cookies simply allow us to see if our customers have come to the site through one of our partner sites so that we can credit them appropriately and where applicable allow our affiliate partners to provide any bonus that they may provide you for making a purchase.
Hopefully that has clarified things for you and as was previously mentioned if there is something that you aren’t sure whether you need or not it’s usually safer to leave cookies enabled in case it does interact with one of the features you use on our site. However if you are still looking for more information then you can contact us through one of our preferred contact methods.
