More about Cookies:
Cookies are small text files sent from a web site to a user's PC for later access by the same web site. Cookies are quickly becoming an industry standard for how web systems maintain "state". State is the term used to describe how a web site recognizes you from other visitors to the web site.

The typical use of a cookie is by an e-commerce web site. Major commerce sites prompt you for the information stored on the cookie. This information is usually general stuff like your name and e-mail address. Some sites that require a login ID and password may actually prompt you for the information so you would not need to log in during subsequent visits. Other cookie information may contain your site preferences such as whether you prefer frames or graphics. These cookies are stored on your hard drive. Cookies cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses, and they can only be read by the site that created it.

Our cookie is used only within your current visit for managing the flow of information from our database to your browser for viewing. This site does not prompt you for any information. Our cookie is only temporary while your browser is open and is never written to your hard drive. This cookie resides in the temporary browser memory which is deleted when the browser is closed or the user shuts down. The cookie is essentially your key to a faster view of the data you have selected from the entire licensee database.
