PLEASE NOTE: An official legal statement is pending and will be posted as soon as it is completed.
If in the meantime you are at all uncomfortable using this site, I understand completely, but I encourage you to read on below.
The main use of these cookies is for the delivery of ads in the page from Google’s ad service, AdSense.
A definition follows:
“A message given to a Web browser by a Web server. The browser stores the message in a text file. The message is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
“The main purpose of cookies is to identify users and possibly prepare customized Web pages for them. When you enter a Web site using cookies, you may be asked to fill out a form providing such information as your name and interests. This information is packaged into a cookie and sent to your Web browser which stores it for later use. The next time you go to the same Web site, your browser will send the cookie to the Web server. The server can use this information to present you with custom Web pages. So, for example, instead of seeing just a generic welcome page you might see a welcome page with your name on it.”
