A Note About Cookies

When you visit the Site we may make use of “cookies” by placing one or more cookies on your machine – or reading one from your machine – if your browser is set to accept cookies. A cookie is a small text file that can be placed and stored on your computer’s hard disc for record keeping purposes when you visit a website. A cookie itself is not designed or intended to read any information from a user’s computer (other than the contents of the cookie); rather, it is an identifier used by the website that originally placed it on your hard drive. The actual contents of the cookie information can be retrieved by the same server to identify the computer and subsequently to customize, monitor or regulate the use of a site based on information stored on the host server. Therefore, cookies only identify the user’s computer to the website, which may correlate other information, including personally identifying information, with the cookie.

We may use cookies to allow us to automate access and the data entry functions of our website, such as to correlate online ordering information for purchases you may make while at the website (if any), tailor our website to your preferences or interests, look up your license information, or customize promotions or marketng. In addition, cookies allow us to track use of our website to determine those areas which are useful or popular and those that are not, thereby enabling us to improve and update our website effectively. The cookie contains a simple code that is used solely by our Web server every time you access a TreeAge Site from your computer.
