Cookies are tiny text files stored on your computer when you visit certain web pages. The Gnome Village uses cookies to keep track of what you have in your basket and to remember you when you return to our Stamp Club or Shopping Cart.

Cookies cannot harm your computer and do not contain any personal or private information.

Cookies store little bits of information to help web sites recognize you when you return.  Cookies are also very important in allowing Shopping Carts to save your items.  After all the hype about Cookies, there is very little (or no) evidence that they will give out your private information. 

There is also another type of cookie called a Session Cookie.  These are VERY important to many websites, such as ours, which need to determine if you've logged in or not.  These cookies are not permanent, and last only as long as your web browser is open.  They are automatically deleted if you haven't accessed (or refreshed) a page on our site within 20 minutes.  If you do not allow Session Cookies, then you probably cannot access several important features of our website, such as the on-line catalog, the Shopping Cart, and the Gnome Stamp Club.

To be safest, always check to see if you have the latest version of your web software.  Newer versions are always upgrading security holes which hackers exploit.  Take the time to download the latest version of your web browser.
