Use of Cookies

The Areté Rising website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by 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 save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Areté Rising pages, or register with the Areté Rising site or services, a cookie helps Areté Rising to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your Personal Information. When you return to the same Areté Rising website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Areté Rising features that you customized.
