The Company is especially careful about the security and confidentiality of the information stored in cookies. For example, the Company does not store account usernames or passwords in cookies. If you disable your Web browser’s ability to accept cookies, you will be able to navigate the Company’s website, but you will not be able to successfully use the Service.
