A cookie is a small piece of information that tells a web site you have visited there before. With your permission, a web server such as Optica Software's sends a cookie to be stored on your computer's hard drive, taking up less than 100 bytes of disk space. The Optica Software cookie acts like an identity card every time you visit the Optica Software web site. Optica Software cannot read cookies set by other sites.

Cookies can save you time. If you enable cookies, you will not have to provide your name and password when visiting the parts of our site that require registration. Cookies also allow Optica Software to customize the pages you visit based on the profile information you choose to provide. By creating a profile and enabling cookies, you teach us to give you more of what you want (and less of what you don't). This also helps us focus our development efforts.

Much of Optica Software's website can be accessed with cookies disabled, and your privacy will always be imperative. But as we add more personalization features to meet your needs and requests, more of our site will use cookies for a richer, more convenient experience.

You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. Please see the "Help" menu for your browser.

Optica Software encourages all internet users to educate themselves as much as possible about internet privacy and security so they can make informed choices. If you want to learn more about cookies, is an excellent resource.
