What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files stored on a user’s computer. OnePetro uses cookies to help identify you and your preferences when you return to OnePetro.org to deliver content that is specific to your interests and to keep track of your preferences. Cookies are not programs and are not known to be damaging to your computer. The cookies set by OnePetro do personally identify you; however, they simply permit the OnePetro web site to know what your preferences are. They also provide us with anonymous aggregated information so that we can make sure our website is easy to navigate, identify the areas of interest to you and generally improve the website and our services. Cookies set on any website are only visible to that website and not to any other websites you may visit.

When are cookies created?

Writing data to a cookie is usually done when a new webpage is loaded. When your browser accesses the site, OnePetro's server checks your browser settings to see if it is permissible to store this identification information on your computer.

How long does a cookie last?

Most cookies used by OnePetro are temporary; that is, they remain only for the duration of your session on the OnePetro website. OnePetro does write some cookies that remain after you end your session, such as items loaded into your shopping cart in OnePetro. This is designed to assist users whose session is interrupted before they can complete their purchase.
