What are “Cookies”?

A cookie is a small piece of data (like a text file) that a website – when visited by a user – asks your browser to store on your device to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information. They are unique to your account or your browser. Session-based cookies last only while your browser is open and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies last until you or your browser delete them or until they expire.

How Does the SLBDC Use Cookies?

We use cookies to improve your experience on our website, including:

  • Understanding and saving a user’s preferences for future visits
  • Compiling aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions to offer better site experiences and tools in the future. 
  • Enabling our website to remember you, for a faster and more secure access, and to track the page you visit. 

Our web hosting servers can use “cookie” technology to keep track of the browsers with which they are communicating. During a cookie transaction, a web server will hand a browser some data prescribed by the website’s developers. The browser will return that data with its next request for content from the website. Using this technology, it is possible for an application running on a web server to distinguish one web browser’s activity from another.
