The Help menu on the menu bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether.

We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. When transferring sensitive personal data (such as your payment card details) between computers, these are also transferred in an encrypted form. When we transfer such information in unencrypted form, we send only part of the details in order to minimise the risk of your details being intercepted and used fraudulently whilst still enabling you to (for example) recognise which credit card you have used to purchase our products.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your passwords or to your computer, either directly at your keyboard or through any network connections you may have. Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer.
