What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website's computer and stored on your computer's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
Cookies record information about your online preferences. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, of course, means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of thegunroom.com features. Each browser is different, so check the 'Help' menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
If you have set your computer to reject cookies you can still browse thegunroom.com anonymously until such time as you wish to register for The Gun Room services. For further information on cookies please visit www.aboutcookies.org.
A European Union directive requires us to gain the consent of our users to download cookies on to their machines.
