What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. Such information is used to log you in, to keep track of your favorites across the community, posts you have made and so on. When you visit a Web site, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each Web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a Web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Browsers are usually set to accept cookies. However, if you would prefer not to receive cookies, you may alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies,  you will not bee able to log into our community or take advantage of classes. You must have cookies set to be received if you want to access paid portions of the site you have subscribed to. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or pass on computer viruses, and is completely safe for you to accept from our site.

How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?

As you visit and browse our Web site, the site uses cookies to differentiate you from other users, particularly in terms of login and postings made to our Community area and in the Institute’s classes. In some cases, we also use cookies to prevent you from having to log in more than is necessary for security. Cookies, in conjunction with our Web server’s log files, allow us to calculate the number of people visiting our Web site and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback to constantly improve our Web site and better serve our clients. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not intentionally store any personal information that your browser provided to us in your cookies.

IP Addresses

IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer.
