So What Went Wrong?

There are many reasons why a cookie could not be set correctly, here are the most common reasons:

What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your web browser from a web server. This data is never "executed" as code, so it can't contain programs or viruses, and can't be longer than 4,000 characters. Cookies are generally used to help web sites determine the state of your "client."

Let's say, for instance, that you go to a shopping web site and purchase something. Instead of going off to pay for that item right away, you want to continue browsing. A cookie can be "set" to indicate that you put something in your "shopping cart", so that when you go to pay for all your items, the server has a way of knowing all the items you selected by looking at your cookie.

We uses a cookie simply to record your ID.

Why we use Cookies

First, we should make it clear that we only use cookies to help identity you to our system. When you first register, the feedback that you provide us helps us figure out what kind of news and information we should send you. We "set a cookie" on your browser with your User ID so that when you visit any of our web pages, we know it's you and not your neighbor.

We should also make clear that we do not distribute your cookie information to other organizations. No other sites outsideof our website can access this cookie.

What about Security?

A cookie cannot be used to extract data from your system. When a cookie is set, your browser checks it for length, an expiration date, and the domain from which it came. This domain checking means that only we can access your cookie. We do not distribute your cookie or account information to other companies.

Can other people see my preferences?

Our ID/password scheme is used primarily to identify you to our system. It provides some measure of security, but it is certainly not fool proof. If you login to our web site anyone with access to your computer can use your account, while you are "logged in". You can "log out" at any time by clicking "Log Off".

We hope this information clarifies the role of cookies on our system.
