How Do We Use “Cookies”?

Visitors should be aware that non-personal information and data may be automatically collected by the WCCCI website through the use of “cookies.”  Cookies are small text files a website can use to recognize repeat visitors, facilitate the visitor’s ongoing access to and use of the site, and allow a site to track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements.
