What are cookies? How does TPF use cookies on its site?

Some of our Web Sites will send a “cookie,” a small text file, to your computer. This allows us to recognize your computer the next time you visit, without bothering you with another request to register. And, if you use an online “shopping cart,” cookies allow us to keep track of the products you purchase. If you do not wish to receive cookies, please refer to the “Help” file of your Internet Browser either to learn how to block all cookies or how to receive a warning before a cookie is stored.
