When you return to the same Site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Site’s features that you customized.

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 Site or the Company’s services.
