Use of Cookies
The CCC Montreat website uses "cookies" to help personalize your online experience. Cookies are small, non-intrusive text files that are placed on your hard disk by a website 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. Cookies tell the web server that a specific user has returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize CCC Montreat's web pages, or register with a CCC Montreat site or service, a cookie helps the CCC Montreat web server to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as email addresses, home addresses, and so on. When you return to the same CCC Montreat website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the CCC Montreat features that you previously customized.

You have the ability within your web browser to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the CCC Montreat websites you visit.
