What is a cookie and why does MySeniorCare.com put cookies on my computer? Do I have a choice about them if I want to use the site?
A "cookie" is a small line of text that MySeniorCare.com can store on your hard drive when you visit the site. Cookies help us give you a better experience as you move through the site. Once you've registered, cookies can allow you to bypass the log-in process. Cookies can allow you to tailor the site to your preferences and allow us to display advertisements that may fit your interests while you visit the site. Note, however, we do not send your personally identifiable information to the advertisers.
There are two types of cookies:
"Session cookies" are deleted when you close your browser and end a Web viewing session.
"Permanent cookies" are stored until a date we specify or until you remove them.
Cookies tell us how often a computer, or a person using a login ID, visits our site. They can also record what parts of our site you visited. The text of a cookie can contain a unique identifier assigned to your browser. It can also contain information about you or your preferences.
We do not store your personally identifiable information in your permanent cookies. MySeniorCare.com does not and will not link that data to your permanent cookie.
You don't have to accept cookies if you don't want to. You just need to change the settings in your browser to reject all cookies. If you do, you can still visit MySeniorCare.com, but you'll miss out on certain features. You'll have to log in each time you want to customize your profile and access other sections of the member-only portions of the site.
What is my username?
