MV3 uses “cookie” technology to obtain information from on-line visitors. A “cookie” is a small, encrypted data string sent to your web browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. These “cookies” are used to compile information detailing the use of our site to help us better understand and meet the needs of our customers and business partners. To do this, they may collect a unique identifier, user preferences, profile information, and membership information, as well as general usage and volume statistical information. MV3’s server will query your browser to see if there are “cookies” previously set by the MV3 Websites.
We use “session ID cookies” and “persistent cookies” to deliver Web content specific to your interests and control access to restricted content. “Session ID cookies” expire when you close your browser. “Persistent cookies” remain on your hard drive after you leave our MV3 Websites. Most “persistent cookies” are set to expire between 90 and 365 days.
A cookie cannot be used to access or otherwise compromise the data on your hard drive. While we do not offer an opt-out for cookies, most browsers provide you with the ability to accept or reject the cookie or alert you when a cookie is being used. You can also set your browser to refuse all cookies or accept only cookies returned to the originating servers. You can usually disable the cookie feature on your browser without affecting your ability to use the site. However in some cases, cookies are used as an essential security feature necessary for transaction completion, and may be required to complete certain functions on our MV3 Websites.
