whom we may then receive commissions. These Affiliate Networks use
'Cookies' to track your shopping behaviour after you leave our websites.

you bought and amount spent. Affiliate Network Cookies identify and
track your computer, but do not collect user names, addresses, or

will often be given your tracking information from the Affiliate Network,
so that they don't pay 'double commission' to us.
