Cookie Disclosure Statement
What's a cookie?
A cookie is a small file that's sent to your computer by a site's server. A cookie can be a record of your visit to a site, including information such as your User Name, time of last visit, pages viewed, etc. Contrary to what you might read elsewhere, cookies cannot get information from your hard drive against your will, destroy files, send you viruses, etc. An important point: Cookies can only contain as much information as you disclose to the site that sent it to you! In our case, that means any information included in your subscription form or that you input during the customization of your DRF Online. We can also track aggregate -- not individual -- page views, which helps us develop new features and services that our users are interested in.
So what's in it for me?
Here's a quick rundown of what we see as the biggest advantages of cookies:
•Faster, more secure access: So we don't have to
ask you to identify yourself with each new page requested.
We can also deliver you customized information and store
your settings more efficiently.
•Better information: We want to give you features and services that you're interested in. By monitoring popular -- and not-so-popular -- features in an aggregate manner, we can better serve your needs.
So do you track my usage patterns using cookies?
Absolutely not. We do track the usage of various features within DRF Online on an aggregate basis and report this to advertisers. However, we do not track your usage or other personal information in any individually identified way.
Will the cookies you send me go away?
Cookies expire the earlier of 24-hours after user activates their session, or when a user chooses the log out feature to terminate their session. Remember, cookies are small files (just a few hundred bytes) and won't pose any significant disk-space concerns. You are, of course, free to clear any and all cookies from your hard drive any time you wish. Just search your system for any files named cookie.txt or similar and delete them at your discretion.
