What is a cookie?

Cookies Used on this Site
Cookies come in different forms: Required cookies, functional cookies, and targeting cookies. We use session ID cookies to enable you to access products and services purchased. These session cookies make it easier for you to access our website. A session ID cookie expires once you close your browser. You may reject these cookies, but if you do, your ability to use some areas of our site may be limited.
Active Required Cookies
Required cookies are those cookies necessary for the website or application to function and cannot be turned off in our systems. Our website relies on PHP sessions to maintain sessions across web requests via the PHP session cookie. Some cookies such as CraftSessionId are intended to expire at the end of a browsing session. A browsing session typically ends when you close the browser window, but this behavior may vary depending on which browser and your browser preferences. In Chrome, for example, the 'Continue where you left off' option for the 'On startup' setting will prevent session cookies from being deleted, thereby extending your sessions indefinitely.
Our website has functionality from other applications built into the processes, specifically for completing forms, and submitting payment. You are able to disable those cookies (directions below), though you may lose the ability to complete those functions.
Third Party Website Cookies
When using our website, you may be directed to other websites for activities such as checking your evaluation status. These websites may use their own cookies. We do not have control over the placement of cookies by other websites you visit, even if our site directs you to theirs.
