TourneyTime: Cookie Help & Information


  What are cookies and why must I accept them on your site?
A cookie is a small piece of information (text file) that's sent to your browser - along with an HTML page - when you access some Web sites. When a cookie arrives at your browser, it generally is saved on your hard drive or in your computer's memory. When you return to that site later, some stored information is sent back to the site's Web server, along with your request. A cookie is also a digital "ID tag." It is uniquely yours and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It can not read any other part of your files, nor can it be used to send viruses.  

What will TourneyTime do with cookies?
TourneyTime will use cookies on its Web site to:

  1. Authenticate accounts and grant access to TourneyTime member section pages.
  2. Store your preferences so that we can recognize them and personalize the site.  

How will a cookie protect you?
The use of cookies is the simplest, most secure, and most widely accepted form of authentication. Using a cookie helps ensure that only you have access to your account. Authentication information is valid only for a single session and changes each time you begin a new session. This is a temporary cookie and will expire at the end of each session. We may also send cookies that will store your web site. We require cookies when using your TourneyTime member account.  

How will cookies enhance the TourneyTime site?
By using cookies, our server will know your preferences allowing us to offer you more personalization.  

Privacy and cookies on the web site.
Your privacy is of the highest priority. We work hard to earn your trust and we will continue to do so. No other company or Web site can access your TourneyTime cookie. Furthermore, TourneyTime will use your personal information only to service your account and to improve the quality of our service. We do not sell your personal information to third parties.
