The Basics of the Cookie
“Cookies” are small (less than 4K) datafiles which are set automatically on the hard drive of your computer in the course of accessing websites on the Internet. Cookies are intended to make your use of the website more efficient and to enable certain features of the webpages, which would otherwise remain unavailable. Cookies do not communicate executable code to your computer and cannot be used to transmit malware.
Some cookies are “sessional cookies” (functioning only for the duration of the user access of the webpage, and then automatically deleted), others are “persistent cookies” (cookies which remain on the hard drive of the user until deleted). Cookies may also be “third party cookies” (originating from a domain other than the domain directly accessed by the user), or “Flash cookies” (which may be automatically re-set on the hard drive after they have been intentionally deleted by the user).
We also use analytics to monitor how the website is used. We collect information anonymously and generate reports detailing information such as the number of visits to our website, where visitors generally came from, how long they stayed on the website, and which pages they visited.
Google Analytics places several persistent cookies on your computer’s hard drive. These do not collect any personal data. If you do not agree to this you can disable persistent cookies in your browser. This will prevent Google Analytics from logging your visits.
Cookies can be controlled by preference settings on your browser software. Preferences can be selected to block cookie placement, or block specific cookies. Cookies which have been placed on your hard drive during previous sessions of Internet use may be deleted specifically, or cleared entirely.
By way of example only, the following URL’s may provide helpful information on cookie management by some browser software providers:
Microsoft Internet Explorer®
You should be aware, however, that by blocking or deleting cookies, features of the Trihedral Website and websites of other parties may not function as effectively, or at all.
