When you interact with the gatherspace.com Website we strive to make that experience easy and meaningful. When you come to our Web site, our Web server sends a cookie to your computer. Cookies are files that Web browsers place on a computer's hard drive and are used to tell us whether customers and visitors have visited the Site previously.
Standing alone, cookies do not identify you personally. They merely recognize your browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to gatherspace.com, either by responding to a promotional offer, opening an account, or registering for a 30-day Test Drive, you remain anonymous to gatherspace.com. Cookies come in two flavors: session and persistent-based. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you've closed your browser or turned off your computer. They include such information as a unique identifier for your browser.
Gatherspace.com uses session cookies containing encrypted information to allow the system to uniquely identify you while you are logged in. This information allows gatherspace.com to process your online transactions and requests. Session cookies help us make sure you are who you say you are after you've logged in and are required in order to use the gatherspace.com application.
