A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual.

Amazon Affiliate Links
Gardener’s Yards is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com. Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Each of your purchases via our Amazon affiliation links supports our cause at no additional cost to you.
If Gardener’s Yards links to an Amazon product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their shopping cart through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, Gardener’s Yards gets a small percentage (1-10%) of the sale. Amazon links are not ‘pay per click’. If you click on a product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else however, Gardener’s Yards will get a commission on that sale.
Anytime you see a link that looks like https://amzn.to/… or www.amazom.com/… it is an Amazon affiliate link.
