COOKIES AND YOUR PRIVACY:
What is a cookie?  A cookie is described as a message sent from a web browser to a web server.  A cookie’s purpose is to identify visitors and provide them with customized user specific pages.  They are also used to store site login information for you.  When you visit a website, and are asked to provide personal information, such as your name, email address and interests, this information is formed into a cookie and sent to your web browser, which stores it for later use.  Upon visiting the same website again, your browser sends the cookie to the server, to bring to memory your user-specific content.  Web servers do not have “memory,” so when you are getting user-specific content, a cookie has been placed on your computer’s hard disk, so the web site can remember who you are and your preferences.

If you are concerned about cookies and your privacy, you can block or disable cookies from being used on your computer.  You can block or disable cookies on a site to site basis (recommended), as well as blocking or disabling cookies from all sites at one time.  It is not recommended to block or disable all cookies, as this can cause an interference with some web sites altogether.  Check your computer's browser documentation for instructions on how to block or disable cookies.
