Browser issues and cookies

What are "cookies"?

Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. Cookies allow your browser to remember specific information, like your user ID or what items you've added to your Shopping Cart. A cookie can't be used to get data from your hard drive, get your e-mail address, or retrieve any personal information.

Are cookies safe?

Yes. Cookies are just bits of information; they cannot perform any operations by themselves. Alibris is committed to protecting your privacy. Our cookies do not contain any personally identifying information, but they do enable us to provide a Shopping Cart and to store your shipping and billing information between visits. Our affiliates or advertisers may also use cookies. Alibris encourages all companies who use cookies to follow appropriate privacy standards and policies, but we are not responsible for cookies placed by third parties. For more information, see our Privacy Policy.

How do I enable cookies so I can shop on Alibris?

To enable or disable cookies, you must do so within your browser application. Every browser places access to your cookie settings differently, so you may need to check your browser's help section or consult the manufacturer's Web site for information on changing cookie settings. If you've set your browser to reject cookies, you can still use our Web site, but you won't be able to purchase items.
