What are "Cookies"? Do I need to accept them ?

A cookie is a text file on your computer that reminds our system of your particular browser preferences and security requirements and lets us know who you are. Because cookies are site specific, only can access, decode, and make use of the information.

Prior to changing any of the settings in your browser, please consult with your Information Technology or Computer Support resources to insure you abide by your corporate guidelines.

You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. You must accept per-session cookies (not stored on your computer) to view this site. Any cookies stored on your computer can be rejected and still view the site. Per-session cookies have an expiration date of "end of session". All cookies created by this site will be removed when you click the logout link on the toolbar. Here is how to set your cookie preferences.
