A: Some people are nervous about cookies. Privacy is a valid issue for all of us; however, cookies are very limited in scope. A cookie can only contain plain text, not code, so cannot spread computer viruses. They go into a specific folder or directory location that you control, via your web browser software. As a result, cookies can't read or write to arbitrary files or folders on your computer. Also, each cookie is limited to 1,024 characters, so contains very little information. Most cookies include expiration dates and those that don't, expire (and are deleted) as soon as you close your browser. Web browsers give you the ability to disable cookies entirely so that no web server can read or write them; however, doing so will make many web sites function improperly or not at all.
If you require more information about cookies please contact the Webmaster on email@example.com

A: PROBLEM: Too many results
A: Be more specific. If you find that your search word has produced too many results, refine your search by adding a descriptive word (adjective). For example, if you were to type in "LED", you will get over 400 products! However, you can narrow down your search by adding a description word such as "UV LED" or "Ultra Violet LED".
A: Use the non-abbreviated form. Words like "LED", "IC", and "CB" will produce some 'strange' results because they are part of other words. For example, if you type in "IC", you will get microphones, picture viewers, etc, not just IC's. Try searching for "integrated circuit", or "CMOS IC"
PROBLEM: Not enough results or nothing found
A: Be less specific. Perhaps you have been too specific in your search. Eg. You might have typed "5mm ultraviolet 10uA LED". This is too specific - try removing some of the words to make your search less specific. Eg "5mm Ultraviolet LED" or "ultraviolet LED". The best words to remove would be the technically specific ones like '10uA' or the dimension information like '5mm'
A: Check your spelling. Everyone makes mistakes! If, for example, you've typed 'doide' instead of 'diode', the search engine will not find it. You can check the spelling of your search by looking at the page that returns the following message: "No products were found that match the keyword(s) doide. Please try another search keyword.
Also, try both the BRITISH and AMERICAN English versions of words - Eg. "colour" and "color", "analyzer" and "analyser"
If you have no luck finding what you want after several search attempts, please let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
A: Many of our products are covered under a 12 month warranty. For warranty claims please contact an Electus Sales person.
