*”Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing a website. CDAC may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on the website.
