What is a cookie?
A cookie is a chunk of data – typically stored as a text file – that is placed on your computer or other device when you visit a particular website.
The cookie is used to identify your device to the website when you visit again so the site can load your preferences, automatically accept your credentials, or otherwise personalize the experience. Cookies do not store personal information about you, just information identifying your device.
You can also separately control whether to accept third-party cookies – cookies placed by third party services that are integrated into the website you are visiting.
For example, third-party cookies are used by Google Analytics for tracking website traffic, and by Wild Apricot to embed its functionality on non-Wild Apricot sites using widgets. You only need to enable third-party cookies only if you are using third-party services that require you to do so.
By default, Safari blocks third-party cookies, while Firefox and Chrome accept them. Internet Explorer blocks third-party cookies by default but allows users to accept them from Wild Apricot and other sites. Some firewalls or browser plug-ins may affect your browser’s cookies settings.
