What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on the browser or hard drive of your computer or mobile device when you visit a web page or application. Cookies are widely used to make websites work more efficiently for users, as well as to provide evidence to the website’s operators.

saraceninteriors.com does use some non-essential cookies to gain useful knowledge about how the site is used so that we can keep improving it for our users. Without the knowledge we gain from the systems that use these cookies we would not be able to provide the service we do.
Although cookies cannot carry viruses, and cannot install malware on the host computer, tracking cookies and especially third-party tracking cookies are commonly used as way to compile long-term records of individuals’ browsing histories – a major privacy concern that prompted European and US law makers to take action.
