What is a ‘Cookie’?

Cookies are little files stored on your computer / device via your browser and enable a site to 'remember' little bits of information between pages or visits.  They are mostly used to make the web experience better, like automatically logging you in to a site on return visits, or remembering settings like text size. In order to see how many visitors we have on our website, Shappos.com will also use Google Analytics to measure site performance, and this will use third party cookies, explained below.
