Cookies – What They Are and Why They Are Used
Like many companies that provide web sites, The Website Owner, operator, or their agents may use “cookies” in order to better understand and serve the needs of our online visitors. A cookie is a small text file that a web page server places on your hard drive. Cookies function as your identification card and may record passwords, preferences and purchases. Cookies are used to let the web page server know that you have returned to this site. This helps us to be more efficient in serving you because it permits us to determine what information and web pages you may be especially interested in viewing. Cookies also can be used to determine other information, such as the daily visitors to our web site and the pages of the site most frequently visited. Cookies are unique and can only be read by the server that assigns them. They cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. If you do not wish to have a cookie set when you visit our web pages, you may alter the settings in your browser to prevent them.
