All About Cookies
The WWW is built on a very simple, but powerful premise. All material on the Web is formatted in a general, uniform format called HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), and all information requests and responses conform to a similarly standard protocol. When someone accesses a server on the Web the user's web browser will send an information request to a computer. This computer is called a web server. The web server will respond to the request by transmitting the desired information to the user's computer. There, the user's browser will display the received information on the user's screen.

Cookies are pieces of information generated by a web server and stored in the user's computer, ready for future access. Cookies are embedded in the HTML information flowing back and forth between the user's computer and the servers. Cookies were implemented to allow user-side customisation of web information. For example, cookies are used to personalise web search engines, to allow users to participate in WWW-wide contests (but only once!), and to store shopping lists of items a user has selected while browsing through a virtual shopping mall.

Essentially, cookies make use of user-specific information transmitted by the web server onto the user's computer so that the information might be available for later access by itself or other servers. In most cases, not only does the storage of personal information into a cookie go unnoticed, so does access to it. Web servers automatically gain access to relevant cookies whenever the user establishes a connection to them, usually in the form of web requests.

Cookies are based on a two-stage process. First the cookie is stored in the user's computer without their consent or knowledge. For example, with customisable web search engines like My Yahoo!, a user selects categories of interest from the web page. The web server then creates a specific cookie, which is essentially a tagged string of text containing the user's preferences, and it transmits this cookie to the user's computer. The user's web browser, if cookie-savvy, receives the cookie and stores it in a special file called a cookie list. This happens without any notification or user consent. As a result, personal information (in this case the user's category preferences) is formatted by the web server, transmitted, and saved by the user's computer.

During the second stage, the cookie is automatically transferred from the user's machine to a web server. Whenever a user directs his/her web browser to display a certain web page from the server, the browser will, without the user's knowledge, transmit the cookie containing the information to the web server.

Cookies are harmless and are essential in serving you the correct information and holding your shopping cart data.

Security FAQs

Why do you want my e-mail address/telephone number etc?

Answer: We ask for these details so we can contact you in case there is a problem with your order. On the rare occasions there is a delivery problem and we need to contact the customer to resolve it. We also contact customers through e-mail with special Equikro offers and information. For example, if we have your email address, we can alert you to our Internet Sale straight away. You'll be at the front of the queue! We do not make e-mail addresses or telephone numbers available to other companies.


Any goods other than faulty goods must be returned at the customers expense and
proof of posting should be obtained as we cannot be responsible for any returned goods until they have reached our warehouse.

Hygiene Regulations
Due to the Health and Safety regulations and the hygienic problems involved with the inspection of Footwear and Horse Clothing, we are unable to handle and inspect any item unless it is clean and dry (Health and Safety at Work Act 1974)
