What sort of cookies does Our PH Library use?
Our PH Library stores cookies to perform the following functions:
- Essential Cookies
Some cookies are essential for the operation of our website. For example, some cookies allow us to identify subscribers and ensure they can access the subscription only pages. If a subscriber opts to disable these cookies, the user will not be able to access all of the content that a subscription entitles them to.
- Performance Cookies
We utilize other cookies to analyze how our visitors use our website and to monitor website performance. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by customizing our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages.
- Functionality Cookies
We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences. For example, cookies save you the trouble of typing in your username every time you access the site, and recall your customization preferences, such as your preferred settings in the stock charting tool.
In addition, functionality cookies are set when a user takes advantage of our accessibility options, such as increasing font size and changing the site to black and white for those users who require higher contrast.
