Cookies


Cookies are small files that a website will transfer to your computer that allows it to remember specific information about your session while you are connected to that website. Your computer will only share the information in the cookie with the website that provided it, and no other website can request it. There are two main types of cookies:

Session: session cookies will only last as long as your web browser is open; when you close your browser that cookie will be deleted. Websites use cookies to better navigation of the site, or to allow you to customize your preferences for interacting with that site.

Persistent: persistent cookies are saved on a user’s hard drive, in order to determine which users that visit the site are new or returning.

If you do not want to have session or persistent cookies stored on your device, you can access your cookie settings in your browser settings. You can choose to not allow cookies at all, only allow cookies sometimes, or to alert you when a website wants to set or access cookies. If you disable cookies, some parts of this website may not function properly.

Cookies do not collect personally identifiable information, unless a website has a membership and login (and you use it). In this case, websites use these to personalize your shopping or reading experiences. Companies that routinely use this are: ebay, bbc, yahoo, etc.
