Some pages in the Friends Bookstore website will contain “cookies” files to enhance the user experience. A “cookie” file is a small text file stored in the Internet browser of your computer to store user preferences. The “cookie” file itself does not provide the user’s email address or other personal information to this website. This website will only access the relevant information when the user chooses to provide the relevant personal information to this website.

Most Internet browsers are initially set to allow the use of “cookies” files. If you do not allow the use of “cookies” files, you can make adjustments on the Internet browser and electronic devices. If you disable the “cookie” file, you may not be able to use some functions on our website.
