What About Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide special features for you and to identify items in your stored Shopping Basket between visits.
The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of www.photodirector.net's most advanced features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.
Are Cookies Dangerous or Malicious?
The cookie that is sent to you by www.photodirector.net is a tiny text file that assigns a unique number to your browser session so that if you buy prints, our system knows which online user owns which shopping cart; that's all we do. Our cookie expires when you log off. Our cookie does not contain or gather ANY private information from your system. Our cookie is not invasive in any way and is purely an identifier - we absolutely guarantee that.
Having said that, and although cookies are not dangerous, there is a new trend by some marketing organizations to use a cookie to track a lot more of the things you do on a website, such as which pages you visit, which region your IP address is from, and even which other sites you visit. The cookie itself can't do this but if it's persistent (designed to last after you close your browser) then as you travel around the Internet to other sites, the sender of the cookie can follow you by the existence of the cookie. This is a rudimentary explanation of how "spyware" works.
In a nutshell, if you're not logged in, we don't know who you are and even when you're logged in, we're not spying on you.
Does www.photodirector.net Share the Information It Receives?
