Data created by a web server that is stored on a user's computer. It provides a way for the web site to keep track of a user's patterns and preferences and, with the cooperation of the web browser, to store them on the user's computer.

The cookies contain a range of URLs (web addresses) for which they are valid. When the browser encounters those URLs again, it sends those specific cookies to the web server. For example, if a user's ID were stored as a cookie, it would save that person from typing in the same information all over again when accessing that service for the second and subsequent time during the same browser session.

You can opt out of the use of cookies by having your browser disable cookies or warn you before accepting a cookie. Look for the cookie options in your browser in the Options or Preferences menu.

NOTE: If you disable cookies in your browser, you will not be able to access any of Modestum's web educational programs.

IP (Internet Protocol) Address

This is the address of a computer attached to a TCP/IP (Internet) network. Every client and server station must have a unique IP address.

A browser session is defined as the period of time a browser is in consecutive use. The session begins when you open the browser and ends when you close it. When you reopen the browser, you begin a new session.

SSL Encryption (Secure Sockets Layer)

A leading security protocol on the Internet. When an SSL session is started, the browser sends its public key to the server so that the server can securely send a secret key to the browser. The browser and server exchange data via secret key encryption during that session. Modestum uses SSL encryption whenever we see necessary to protect your personal information (e.g., name and address, scheduled courses, grades).
