other cookies left by other web sites on your browser. In brief, a
cookie eases the web browsing experience that is why, most professional
web sites use it. Cookies have nothing to do with the fearful spywares.

LebaneseBooks.com anonymously, but will be unable to complete a registration
or a transaction without allowing cookies. Cookies are simply a must
