What about “cookies”?
A cookie — a small text file placed on a user’s hard drive — is generated by a software application on a site’s server. We use temporary session cookies to assign to you and store a SessionID on all secure pages. This SessionID is not personally identifiable to you and this type of cookie does not leave any retrievable information on your hard drive. We also use a third party service provider to collect non-personally identifiable IP addresses and entry-point and search form information to monitor the number of visitors to the site and the usage of our site. This is done through the use of both permanent and session cookies.
We use a session cookie on our site to determine whether or not you are accepting cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can change your browser to prevent that. Even without a cookie, you can still use most of the features on our site.
We use first-party and third-party cookies to aggregate data via Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. This allows us to examine general data about visitors to marioarmstrong.com but in no way tracks any personally identifiable information about our users.
