While we will do our very best to ensure the security of your information, the Internet is not 100% secure.

Cookies, log files and other tracking technologies:

To keep track of cart data, WooCommerce makes use of 3 cookies:

  • woocommerce_cart_hash
  • woocommerce_items_in_cart
  • wp_woocommerce_session_

The first two cookies contain information about the cart as a whole and helps WooCommerce know when the cart data changes. The final cookie (wp_woocommerce_session_) contains a unique code for each customer so that it knows where to find the cart data in the database for each customer. No personal information is stored within these cookies.



This cookie is only used on the SDDU Online network of websites where BuddyPress is deployed and is used in relation to the BuddyPress default “activity page” and the “load more” feature. The cookie remembers what page of activity the “load more” is on.
