I have some "information" links in my online shop, and two of them points outside the store. They link to some informative pages about partners and another about secure transactions. If the user has a pending order, informations about the order and cart should of course still be preserved (cookies). I want to know if such a link represents a security hole for the store or the customer ?

Many thanks

Cookies should be set "per domain" so other sites should not have access to them.
