What is a Cookie?
A cookie is a tiny piece of text asking permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. If you agree, then your browser adds the text in a small file. If you have set your browser to notify you before accepting a cookie, you will notice that cilc.org requests a cookie to be set on your computer. Its purpose is to let us know you are still browsing our site and therefore should not be automatically logged out of your profile. This cookie, by itself, only tells us if you are logged into your profile. It doesn't store your e-mail address, name or any other personal information.
Are All Cookies The Same?
No. There are two kinds; temporary and permanent cookies. Temporary cookies are necessary to maintain the user session and tell our server which page to pull up next. By maintaining the user session, we are able to keep you logged in while browsing the website. Once the user session has ended, usually by closing your browser, the temporary cookie is deleted.
Why Do I Need to Know This?
We want to be sure you understand that accepting a cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any personal information about you. We know that a lot of people have concerns about cookies, but in talking with many of our users, we feel that the benefit we both gain from their proper use is worthwhile. We value the relationships we have with our customers and future customers, so we respect these concerns.
