Cookies - what are they?

Cookies are small text files that websites can send to your computer, tablet or mobile phone. A cookie can be thought of as an internet user's identification card, which tells a website when the user has returned. Cookies are not computer programs, and can't read other information saved on your hard drive. They cannot be used to disseminate viruses, or get a user's e-mail address etc. They only contain and transfer to the website as much information as the users themselves have disclosed to that website. Cookies make the interaction between users and websites faster and easier. Without cookies, it would be very difficult for a website to allow a visitor to fill up a shopping trolley or to remember the user's preferences or registration details for a future visit. The European Union Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications (the "Directive") and its subsequent amendments, recognise that cookies are a "legitimate and useful tool" for many activities, including verifying the identity of website users. To make full use of the Afrishop online website, your computer, tablet or mobile phone will need to accept cookies. We use cookies to allow customers to move from one part of the website to another and to add items to the shopping trolley without having to login repeatedly. It also allows us to give you accurate information about your account and order history. The Afrishop online website also uses cookies to help us enhance the customer’s user experience by, for example, recording statistics on client-side browser performance, or trialling new website designs to see how they perform. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you first access myafrofoodstore.com. Sometimes a cookie may be placed before accessing our site, such as if you click a Google Adwords advert. However, you should be aware that myafrofoodstore.com (in common with most other shopping web sites) will not work without cookies and therefore we recommend you leave them turned on. For example, if you block or otherwise reject cookies you will not be able to add items to your shopping basket, proceed to check out or use any of our products and services that require you to sign in.

These cookies are used to deliver adverts that are more relevant to you and your interests.

Third-party web analytics software allows Afrishop online to measure statistics relating to customer usage of the website.
