A “cookie” is a small data file that certain web sites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track pages you’ve visited, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. We use cookies to track user traffic patterns. We do not correlate this information with data about individual users. If you prefer, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies or to refuse them.
