CLFC keeps you safe with security measures that prevent anyone from accessing these cookies and other technologies. We use unique identifiers that encrypt the data so that only CLFC and our authorised service providers can use or interpret the information stored within.
What are Cookies?
Almost every website today uses a variety of technologies that allows it to record certain pieces of information when you interact with that site.
Cookies are very small text files placed in your browser’s memory that allow a website to recognise your device. There are several types of cookies.
- Session cookies – These expire when you close your browser. These allow CLFC to understand your actions only while you were logged on during a single session.
- Persistent cookies – These remain on your device even after you close your browser and they typically allow our site to remember any preferences you set, such as the preference to remember your password.
First party cookies are those set directly by CLFC. These cookies are covered under our policies. Third party cookies are set by our service providers. These are covered under those providers’ policies.
Most browsers will allow you to disable cookies. If you want to disable cookies, please follow your browser developer’s instructions for doing so.
Web Beacons are like cookies but they are small graphic images instead of text files. They work alongside cookies to identify you and the way you use our site.
Other Technologies that store information in your browser or device can operate across all browsers and may not be fully managed by your browser. CLFC does not use these technologies to store information or to target you with ads.
Some of the services and features provided by CLFC are only available to you when you allow cookies and other technologies. While you can block, delete, or disable cookies and other technologies in most browsers, please be aware that you may not be able to take full advantage of everything CLFC has to offer you. Failing to allow cookies and similar technologies may also require you to reenter your password or other information every time you choose to view our site or log into your account.
Please be aware that cookies, web beacons, and other technologies used by CLFC do not store personally identifiable information. Rather, they store general information about your use of our website. These technologies are encrypted in such a way that only CLFC can identify them.
