a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to
your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a
web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to

returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Independence Software pages,
or register with Independence Software site or services, a cookie helps Independence Software to recall
your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of
recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping
addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Independence Software Web site, the

Independence Software features that you customized.

be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Independence Software services
or Web sites you visit.
