Cookies are text messages stored on your computer's hard drive. The message is sent back to a website's server each time your browser requests a page from the server that set the cookie. The main purposes of our cookies are to prepare customized Web pages that the user has requested, to let users move as quickly and easily around our site as possible, and to identify users who have voluntarily submitted any personal information about themselves to us. We use temporary session cookies that only apply to the current site visit, with the exception of our statistics software that is permanent (to identify repeat users). These cookies only contain technical information and can be deleted from your hard drive or denied if you have disabled the cookies without affecting site performance. Information submitted to us confidentially will not be shared with outside organizations, individuals, or companies, and users are free to delete cookies from their computers' hard drives at any time. Most features that MartinArts.org provides can still be utilized if you have disabled cookies in your browser, but they may require you to log-in multiple times and may otherwise affect site performance.
