Use of Cookies

The GIRAFFEMIND 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 a web page server. 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 GIRAFFEMIND pages, or register with GIRAFFEMIND site or services, a cookie

helps GIRAFFEMIND 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 GIRAFFEMIND website, the information you previously provided can be

retrieved, so you can easily use the GIRAFFEMIND 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

GIRAFFEMIND services or websites you visit.

GIRAFFEMIND secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When

through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.
