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 websites determine the state of your "client."
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 this site can access your Customer Care cookie. We do not distribute your cookie or account information to other companies and, as stated before, we do not store your access code, user ID, or password in your cookie.
We hope this information clarifies the role of cookies on this site.
