Cookies Used On The Investors Section
The primary purpose of the session cookie is to assign a unique ID to a user that can be used to follow the path of the user throughout a website. This unique ID is saved in the cookie, along with 2 timestamps that together are used to determine the last visit date of a user that is used on a “what’s new” page. In addition, the cookie contains a key that prevents anybody from unauthorized altering the contents of the cookie.
The session ID stored in the cookie also is used as a lookup key for “remember me” functionality that is used for webcasts and mail requests. If a user chooses to use this “remember me” functionality (by checking a box when entering a webcast), the users’ information will be linked internally at Shareholder.com with this session ID.
This cookie has a 1-year life span.
The session cookie is checked on every page view, and is set if the session cookie is not detected. If the user has cookies disabled, the session is reset on every page hit. This does not affect the user’s experience, except that “remember me” functionality used in webcasts will not work; the user will have to re-enter all user information for every webcast.
When this cookie is disabled, the reports generated through the client extranet “dialogue” regarding site usage will not be able to follow the paths of this user.
This cookie enables the briefcase functionality on the Site. Most documents throughout Webcenter/360 (such as PDFs of SEC filings) can be added to the briefcase. The user then can visit his briefcase at some later date and download all of the documents together as a .ZIP file or individually.
This cookie lasts for 1 year but the duration can be customized.
When these cookies are disabled, users are unable to place documents into the briefcase for compression and bulk download, and instead must download items individually.
This is done by clicking on a specific opt-out link. The person has to reset this cookie every time the cookie is cleared from his system. This cookie is simply provided as an option for people that do not want cookies to store their information, but do not have access to (or do not want to) alter their cookie settings.
This cookie has no expiration date. The cookie must be deleted to restore the function.
The Site will assume that the user has allowed cookies and has attempted to set them as normal. Depending on the security level of his browser, this may result in multiple prompts for the user to accept cookies.
