Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies.

Do Cookies Need to Be Enabled in your web browser to place an Order?
Yes, cookies need to be enabled in your web browser to place an order. MIVA Merchant, Our shopping software, maintains a shopper's Session_ID using a session cookie that is stored on your machine.
This Session_ID links you to your Shopping Basket. Each time a page is loaded, MIVA Merchant reads this cookie and keeps your shopping basket current. This is our only use of cookies on our site. No personal or shopping item information are stored in this cookie.

If you have cookies disabled in your browser, MIVA Merchant will try to read the Session_ID from an expected cookie file. Since MIVA Merchant won't be able to read the cookie, it simply creates a New Session_ID, and assigns a New, Empty Basket. This could be a problem, as you will continually find an empty basket.

You may freely browse our store without having to enable cookies. However, if you wish to shop online on the giftsofnz.com site, you must temporarily enable Cookies or select appropriate "trust" functions in your browser software to accept cookies for the NZ Gifts Mall website.
