What is a Cookie?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information that are downloaded to your Internet browser when you visit a website or other online service. Cookies often include a unique identifier that makes it possible to recognize your browser when you visit a website again. This can help improve your online experience, for example, by storing your preferences such as preferred language.
There are generally two types of cookies: a “session” cookie that expires when you close the browser; and a “persistent” cookie that is stored by the Internet browser and remains valid until its expiration date or until you delete it.
Examples of cookies used by DECE are described below. For information about how to manage these cookies, please see the Controlling Cookies section below.
Examples of the strictly necessary cookies used by DECE include load balancing cookies that distribute user access across multiple servers. These cookies help ensure that individual servers do not become overloaded and unresponsive to user requests. We also use session ID cookies to streamline communication with your browser.
Examples of functional cookies used by DECE include:
- Persistent login cookie that allows you to remain logged in to the Services. If you uncheck the “Keep me logged in” option, this cookie will not be used. You can also delete or permanently block this cookie from your browser, in which case you’ll have to enter your UltraViolet username and password every time you use the Services or link to your UltraViolet Library;
- Persistent preference cookie that helps to create a personalized experience by remembering your preferred language and country. This cookie is used if you select a country or language from the pop-up menus. You can delete or permanently block this cookie from your browser, in which case you’ll have to re-select language and country.
5. Controlling Cookies. You can manage cookies by using features and functions available on the web browsers you use. Most browsers permit you to select certain options regarding what cookies can be placed on your device and to disable or delete cookies. Because each web browser is different, please consult the instructions provided by your web browser (typically in the “help” section). To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.
Please understand that deleting or disabling cookies may impact your use of the Services and may cause some features of the Services to not work as expected.
