The MAD-learn website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by your web browser. 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.
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. For example, if you personalize MAD-learn pages, or register with MAD-learn site or services, a cookie helps MAD-learn to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same MAD-learn website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the MAD-learn features that you customized. We place cookies on website visitors’ computers to collect aggregate information for site traffic analysis, such as the number of visitors and the number of pages viewed. The aggregate information we collect through cookies helps MAD-learn monitor how you and other visitors use the site, allowing us to provide an optimal experience and better service; this information is never used to identify you personally.
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 may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the MAD-learn services or websites you visit.
