A cookie is a small piece of information that a website puts on a hard drive so that it can remember information about a user at a later date. In TMDworldwide.com cookies are used in two ways: as a temporary, Session Control cookie to validate access privileges and, at the user’s option, as a permanent cookie to facilitate login to TMDworldwide.com via the Remember Me option. Cookies are not used to gather or provide usage statistics. By choosing to take advantage of these services, you consent to the use of your information for the purposes of providing these services. Session Control Cookie: Session control cookies are used on most Web sites today because they facilitate navigation. In order to use TMDworldwide.com users must have their browsers set to accept cookies. Once a user is signed onto TMDworldwide.com, our Web server uses a temporary cookie to help us manage the visit to the service. This Session Control Cookie is deleted when the user clicks on the Logout button in TMDworldwide.com or when the user quits the browser. This cookie allows us to quickly determine access control rights and personal preferences during the online session. The Session Control Cookie is set out of necessity and not out of convenience. Remember Me Cookie: When a user registers to gain access to TMDworldwide.com or its personalization features, whether as a Guest User or as an Authorized User from a subscribing institution, he is asked to choose a user name and password. Every time the user logs into TMDworldwide.com, he/she will be asked to enter this unique user name and password. Users have the option of storing this information on their computers as a permanent cookie by selecting the ‘Remember Me’ option when logging in. This feature is optional and user controlled. The Remember Me cookie can be deleted at any time by clicking on the Logout button in TMDworldwide.com. Users must be careful not to store their user name and password as a cookie on any computer that is not their own, since doing so would enable other users coming to that computer to access TMDworldwide.com under their name and to have access to their TMDworldwide.com My Profile page.
