We recommend, however, that you allow cookies from our site as they enable you to utilize our features and services and limiting or deleting cookies will mean you will be signed out of our Site, lose any of your saved preferences on our Site, and be prevented from adding items to your shopping cart and proceeding to Checkout.

WEB BEACONS:

Some of our Web pages and HTML -formatted e-mail newsletters may use Web beacons to compile aggregate statistics about website usage.
