SharedObject - shopping cart ?

Hi all,

I'm developing a shopping cart in flash that uses PayPal, so I don't really have to worry about card transactions etc.
The products are added to a basket, but if I move to another part of the site before buying this information is lost. To keep a record of whats in the basket I was going to use the Shared Object to store the baskets contents. I know that the Shared Object can be deleted or disabled by the user if they right click on the swf and get the menu.
Is it a bad idea to to use Shared Object, or is it the same with Cookies cos they can be disabled as well.

c.

is the same thing as cookies.
But i'd suggest you to keep the infos in the session (presuming you use a server side script like php or asp or whatever).
