Cookies:

The HNSA store uses browser "cookies" for user sessions. A cookie is a small file stored by the browser which can only be read by the same server that set the cookie. It does not save any sensitive information, such as credit card numbers or passwords within the cookies it uses. When creating a shopping cart for a user, a cookie is used to associate the user with a particular shopping cart. If the browser has cookies disabled, the shopping cart will be linked to the user's IP address.

When a user selects tax, shipping, or payment method options, and then clicks on Checkout on the main shoping cart screen, these selections are stored in a cookie. This cookie allows the system to "remember" the user's selections if the user returns to the store to place another order. The cookie will expire one year from the date it was created. If the browser does not allow cookies, the "memory" feature will not be available.

When a user enters their shipping and billing information on the Billing screen and clicks Submit This Order to complete the order, the system sets another cookie. This cookie contains the billing address (and the shipping address if a separate one is used) that the user used. It does not contain any credit card information. This cookie is set to expire one year from the date it was created. If the user returns to the store from the same computer within this time, the system will detect and read the cookie and the user will not have to re-enter the address information. If cookies are disabled in the browser, this "memory" feature will not be available.

The HNSA Bulletin Board uses cookies to keep track of the user for quicker log in.
