WEBSITE COOKIES

As you know, we absolutely love cakes and cookies. But we’d like to take a moment to talk about another kind of cookie – internet cookies.

Cookies are tiny files that are automatically saved to your computer when you browse sites like eggfreecake.co.uk. They save all sorts of useful information, which helps us to improve your online experience.

Cookies are also text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your personal computer, mobile or other device when you visit a website.

Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user's device.

Are cookies safe?

Yes. Our cookies will not save ANY personal information – none whatsoever. The data we receive is completely anonymous. And cookies won’t harm your computer.
