What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to Your browser from a web server and stored on Your computer’s hard drive. Preference and options configurations in Your browser determine if, and how, a cookie will be accepted. You can change those configurations on Your computer if You desire. By changing Your preferences, You can accept all cookies, You can be notified when a cookie is set, or You can reject all cookies. If You do so and cookies are disabled, You may be required to re-enter Your information more often and certain features of Our site may be unavailable.
What types of cookies does WFC use?
We use two types: sustained cookies and session cookies. A sustained cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to WFC without signing in again. After you sign in, a sustained cookie stays in your browser and will be read by WFC when you return to the site. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a web site or a browser session).
Adobe Flash is another technology that can provide cookie-equivalent functionality. Adobe Flash is capable of storing information on your device (in a file outside of your browser). Please note that not all browsers provide the ability to remove Adobe Flash “cookies” (also called “locally stored objects,” or “LSOs”). You can restrict or block Adobe Flash cookies/LSOs through the Adobe website. As with any cookie, if you do restrict flash cookies/LSOs, there may be some WFC features you aren’t able to use.
What are cookies used for?
Cookies can be used to do lots of different things, like recognize you when you visit WFC , remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with WFC more secure and faster.
Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen you overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information.
What to do if you don’t want cookies to be set
If you do not want to receive cookies, you need to change your browser settings on your computer or other device you’re using to access our services. If you use WFC website without changing your browser settings, we’ll assume that you’re happy to receive all cookies on the WFC website. Please note that the WFC site will not work properly without cookies.
