The majority of advertisers work with third-party tracking solutions to track sales and record the sources of traffic. Those providers will often drop a cookie on your computer when you click through a link from our site to a product providers site. No information which identifies you, for example your name, address, email address or telephone number, is used to provide this advertising. These cookies do not collect personal data about you nor are they linked to any identifiable information about you.
Each advertiser may use a different product provider and those product providers will also drop cookies when you click on links within other websites, so it is not always easy to identify the source of the cookie.
