Frequently Asked Questions - Cookies  

What are cookies and why must I accept them on your site?
A cookie is a small piece of information (text file) that's sent to your browser - along with an HTML page - when you access some web sites. When a cookie arrives at your browser, it generally is saved on your hard drive or in your computer's memory. When you return to that site later, some stored information is sent back to the site's web server, along with your request. A cookie is also a digital "ID tag." It is uniquely yours and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It can not read any other part of your files, nor can it be used to send viruses. What will Royal Shores do with cookies? Royal Shores will use cookies on its client site to: 1. Authenticate valid accounts and grant access to the secure vacation site. 2. Store your preferences in a cookie so that we can recognize them and personalize the vacation site for you. « 

How will a cookie protect you?
The use of cookies is the simplest, most secure, and most widely accepted form of authentication. At Royal Shores, security will not be compromised. Using a cookie helps ensure that only you have access to your account. Authentication information is valid only for a single session and changes each time you begin a new session. This is a temporary cookie and will expire at the end of each session. We only require cookies on our secure site, so they will be transmitted using encryption. « 

How will cookies enhance the Royal Shores site?
By using cookies, our server will know your preferences allowing us to offer you more personalization. You will be able to return to the site with the same settings you chose on your previous visit, reducing the need to reset your preferences. «
