What about these cookies?
What do we do with the one cookie that we send you (and your browser sends back to us...)? Our cookie consists of a single sequentially chosen id number that uniquely identifies your browsing session. We use it to store preferences and to enhance navigation. For example, you may have noticed that when you change one of the top level menu choices, it "remembers" what subsection you were last in.... that's the cookie at work. We can't and won't use the cookie to steal any personal information about you other than what you might choose to provide for server personalization features that we will be offering at a later time. In general, its just a nameless number that we use for little else than helping the navigation system work better and presently, we don't even store much information about them on the server for extended periods. So you are welcome to decline our cookie, but the navigation system will not be as sophisticated.
You may have also heard that pages
rogue web site developers have used a security bug in some of the
browsers to steal your email address for bulk-marketing lists.
However, we don't do anything of the sort and only make minimal use of
it here to enhance your browsing experience. In general you can do
without it (if you want to disable it) but the menus on our "Helper"
pages presently require it.
