What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a small text which includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website 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 website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Some of our business partners (e.g., advertisers) use cookies that originate from their sites. We have no access to or control over those cookies.

How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?

Our website uses its cookies to differentiate Users from each other. In some cases, we may use cookies to prevent you from seeing repeated advertisements or requiring you to login more than is necessary for security. Cookies, in conjunction with our web server’s log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting thelocaldish.com and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us improve our website and better serve our visitors.
