What Are Cookies
A "cookie" is a small line of text that is stored within your browser when you visit
a cookie-enabled website. As you browse the Web, cookie-enabled sites will send
cookies to your browser, along with pages. Your browser probably has options that
will let you control whether the browser accepts cookies, rejects cookies, or notifies
you each time a cookie is sent to you.
If your browser is set to reject cookies, cookie-enabled websites will not recognize
you when you return. This provides you with anonymity, but it also makes it very
difficult to offer you customized services. It is also less secure than using cookies,
because all of your specific data must be sent to the website each time you view
a page. Accepting cookies means your private data can stay at the Web server, and
the only information transmitted over the Internet is your ID cookie.
If your browser is set to accept cookies, any cookies that are sent to your browser
are stored in your computer for a period of time. There are a few different types
of cookies. A "session" cookie is stored only in your computer's working memory
(RAM) and only lasts for your browsing session. When you close all of your browser's
windows, or when you shut down your computer, the session cookie disappears forever.
A "permanent" cookie is stored on your computer's hard drive until a specified date,
which could be tomorrow, next week, or 10 years from now. Permanent cookies stay
on your computer until either a) they expire, b) they are overwritten with newer
cookies, c) you manually remove them.
We use permanent cookies to supply visitors to our site with a customized experience.
These cookies do not involve personally identifiable information. We also use session
cookies to customize your experience during a session, to aid in your navigation
and use of the site, to develop generic web site metrics and other similar uses.
