Use of Cookies by Foil

To provide better service to our users we may use “cookies” to customize your browsing experience. A cookie is a small text file stored on a user’s computer, created and subsequently read by a web site server. Cookies created on your computer by using this web site do not reveal information that you have not supplied, therefore your privacy or security is not compromised. By tracking usage of cookies, we can best determine the needs of our users.

Several of the most recent web browsers can notify you before a web site places a cookie on your computer. Some browsers allow you to block, individually accept, or reject any particular cookie. Although it is good practice to periodically check and delete cookie files in the manner suitable for the browser you are using, you must allow your browser to accept cookies to be able to use certain FOIL online systems. If cookies are disabled or a “cookie cruncher” is running on your client computer, you will get errors when trying to use applications that use cookies.
