Useful Information

A "cookie" is a file that is transferred from a website to your computer's hard drive.  A "cookie" will allow a website to track your activities on their site and can provide personally identifiable information (such as your real name and address) if you recorded that information in your computer and have set your preferences in your browser to provide that information. 

For the most part, cookies are harmless and are intend to provide you a convenience when visiting a web site by recording information that you provide to the site in a "cookie" on your computer's hard drive.  By doing so, the web site can then retrieve this information from your computer's hard drive the next time you visit, thus saving you the time and trouble of re-entering the information.

Unfortunately, the "cookie" technology also leaves open the door for serious abuse and invasion of personal privacy.

If you feel the cookie technology is a potential threat to your right to privacy there are several things you can do to protect yourself:

  • Verify your security settings in your browser and be sure that your browser does NOT allow the transmission of personally identifiable information without your explicit permission. 

  • Set your "warnings" in your browser to "Warn before accepting cookies".

  • Consult the manual for your computer's operating system (ie Windows 95/98, Mac, Unix, etc).  Most operating systems allow the marking of a file or folder as readonly.  By making your cookie folder readonly you can prevent a web site from writing information to your hard drive.
