They cannot be used to disseminate viruses or access the hard drives – a cookie cannot read other information saved on the hard drive, or get a user’s e-mail address etc. They only contain and transfer to the web server as much information as the users themselves have disclosed to a certain website.

Cookies are used by your browser and by most websites to help personalize or improve your web experience. This site will ask you the first time you visit whether you wish to allow cookies that aren’t necessary to the functioning of the site, and you’ll have the opportunity to make your choice then using a bar at the bottom of the page.  This can be changed at any time in the future by clicking the gear icon in the lower left corner of the page.

Google Analytics?

The WNO uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc.

Google Analytics sets cookies in order to evaluate your use of the Site and compile reports for us on activity on the Site to help us understand how visitors engage with the Site and to track visitor interactions. Google Analytics collects information anonymously and without identifying individual visitors.

Google stores the information collected by the cookie on servers in the United States. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. By accessing the Site, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

Analytics uses its own cookies to store information, such as what time the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before, and what site referred the visitor to the web page. To disable this type of cookie, some browsers will indicate when a cookie is being sent and allow you to decline cookies on a case-by-case basis. In addition to declining cookies, you can also install the Google Analytics Opt-out Add-on in your browser, which prevents Google Analytics from collecting information about your website visits.

Google Analytics sets cookies to help us accurately estimate the number of visitors to the website and volumes of usage. This to ensure that the service is available when you want it and fast.
