However, if User logs out of Website, the cookie will be removed. These cookies do not collect, store or maintain any private, personally identifiable information. User does not have to accept these cookies to visit or use Website (although turning cookies off may severely impair Website’s functionality), and User can choose to refuse the cookies, delete the cookies from User’s hard drive or turn off cookies at any time.
