Wink What are "Cookies" and Why Should You Care?

I have read a lot of post or replies where some members are able to access an offer page while others are not. With all of the technology we have to protect our computers as well as speed up the down loading of information, sometimes we don't always "see" what we want to see on our screens, lol!

Cookies are little mini programs installed in your PC when you visit a web-site that allow you to access the same site more quickly or have it "remember you".

This is convienent as in logging in here at Bargain Buddy's, once you click the "remember me" box, you do not need to sign in have enabled harmless "cookies".

However, if you are trying to re-visit a form for a free offer, perhaps to sign up a family member sometimes you are unable to complete the form. You may have cookies stored from the website in your PC. I clear all of my cookies once every few's easy!!

Click on tools at the top of your screen, click on internet opitons and then in the middle where it says "temporary internet files" click on "delete cookies". Basic housekeeping 101...and this way the next time you click on an offer order form you'll know you're looking at a true link, not something that was stored temporarily in your PC!

More about browser settings and pop up/ad blockers tomorrow!
