The Cultured Pearl does employ cookies:
Some websites, pages and advertising or the servers may employ "cookies" to track information about the visits to our web pages. However this is done without actually identifying the visitor, instead giving a code as an identifier; these codes contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.
If you wish to avoid even such anonymous tracking, simply turn off the "cookie" feature on your browser (which can be done from the "options" menu of most browsers). Remember that cookies are employed to provide better services to visitors and turning off this option will limit some functionality.
