What are cookies?
Cookies are little packets of data, that a web server gives to a client with the expectation that the client will hand back the same packet with future requests.  For general information about cookies, read  Netscape's documentation.

Why do we use cookies?
To keep track of the number of users accessing our site. Cookies are the most reliable and easiest to implement way of doing this. We also use cookies for our shopping carts.

Why are cookies good?
Because they allow web server software to group a set of requests together and say that they came from the same person. This makes it possible to count the number of people accessing a site. It also makes it easy to implement shopping carts.

Why are cookies bad?
Cookies are bad because they can allow web server software to group a set of requests together and report that they came from the same person. Combined with forms that request user information, this makes it possible to track individual users. If sites share cookies, the travel of an individual from site to site can be tracked.

We do not share our cookies or any other private information with other sites. The only time we use cookies to correlate with names is in our shopping cart where we have to tie the items you are putting in the cart with your name so that we know they are yours.

When do we send a cookie?
We send one cookie per user. If we get a request with a cookie already supplied, we know this user has already been sent a cookie. If we get a request without a cookie, we send a cookie.

Can I order without using a cookie?
No; cookies have to be active or our shopping cart will not work. If you want to place an order without having cookies turned on, please contact the support@tias.com and explain your problem.
