"Collective Information" is any information that cannot be linked to you personally (i.e., statistics regarding numbers and types of visitors). Collective Information will only be gathered and used on an aggregated basis to help improve internal processes, and monitor usage.
A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. A cookie is an element of data that the Triple-I Website can send to your browser and that your browser may then store on your computer system. Your browser will then return the cookie information to the domain where it originated (in this case, the Triple-I Website). You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. Session cookies are used in the Triple-I Website for state preservation. Personal Information is not saved in a session cookie. The use of session cookies allows for state preservation which enables user's settings to be stored temporarily for the span of time when users are logged in. This improves the usability of the application by reducing the number of trips to the server. Once the user is specifically logged out from the Triple-I Website, the information stored in the session cookie is destroyed.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you will not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Triple-I Website.
