• A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a web site's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive.
  • Each web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

Choices about Cookies

  • You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.)
  • If you reject all cookies, you will not be able to use the GPWA products or services that require you to "sign in," and you may not be able to take full advantage of all offerings. However, many GPWA products and services do not require that you accept cookies.

GPWA's Practices Regarding Cookies

The GPWA uses its own cookies for a number of purposes, including to:
  • Access your information when you "sign in," so that we can provide you with customized content.
  • Keep track of preferences you specify while you are using GPWA's services.
  • Display the most appropriate advertising banners, based on your interests and activity on the GPWA.
  • Assist merchants in the GPWA Stores in processing the items in your shopping cart.
  • Estimate and report our total audience size and traffic.
  • Conduct research to improve the GPWA's content and services.
  • Require you to re-enter your GPWA password after a certain period of time has elapsed to protect you against others accidentally accessing your account contents.

Other Companies' Cookies on the GPWA

  • Please note that the GPWA allows other companies that are presenting advertisements or researching users' response to advertisements on some of our pages to set and access their cookies on your computer.
  • Advertisers' and researchers' use of cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not the GPWA Privacy Policy.
