"Cookies" are alphanumeric identifiers that are transferred by us to your computer's hard drive through your web browser so that our systems are able to recognize your web browser and so that we may provide you with certain service. Our cookies do not contain any personally identifying information, but they do enable us to identify your browser, in case you have visited us earlier and this will enable you to store items in your shopping cart between visits. It is important that you note that the information is only taken from what you have typed into the online forms and not from your hard disk. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. However "cookies" allow you to take advantage of our best features and we suggest that you keep them turned on, though even without a cookie, at the Queens web site, you can still use most of the features in our store, including placing items in your shopping cart and purchasing them. We reiterate that these 'cookies' in no way allow us to access your hard drive at any time or the information that it may contain.
