How to Handle Cookies

 If you are having trouble downloading our demonstration software, perhaps your machine is set to not accept cookies.

A cookie is either a small text file that is stored on your hard drive, or some information that is stored in memory until you close your browser. Our web site saves information on your system in the form of a cookie to allow: a personalized browsing experience, access to a secure implementation, or to better track usage of our web site.

There is some concern that cookies can access and read other areas of your hard drive, or that personal information about you can be read by the web site. Web pages that write and read cookies can only interact with the cookie file(s) for your browser and a cookie can only be accessed by the same domain server that sent it.

Cookies allow you to register or choose personalization options so we can dynamically direct you to information on the web pages that suit your interest. By using a cookie, our site can automatically read your preferences and customize the pages without any action on your part.

 Controlling Cookies in Netscape Navigator

Beginning with version 4.0, Netscape Navigator began giving users the power to control cookies. In version 4.0 and higher, you can activate your "Cookie Alert" by pulling down the Edit menu and clicking Preferences. Click Advanced Settings at the bottom of the dialog box, and choose from the following:

Accept all cookies
Accept only cookies that get sent back to the originating server
Disable cookies

Another option is for Netscape Navigator to warn you before accepting a cookie. Every time there is an incoming cookie, a dialog box will ask if you want to accept it.
