Cookies and Navy.mil
What is a Cookie? Whenever you visit a website the website sends a small piece of information called a cookie along with the webpage. The main purpose of a cookie is to identify and customize webpages for you.
 
There are two kinds of cookies. A session cookie (Tier 1) is a line of text that is stored temporarily in your computer’s random access memory (RAM). A session cookie is never written to a drive, and it is destroyed as soon as you close your browser.
 
A persistent cookie (Tier 2) from a website is saved to a file on your hard drive and is called up the next time you visit that website. This allows the website to remember what you were interested in the last time you visited.
 
The U.S. Navy does not use the information associated with cookies to track individual user activity on the Internet outside U.S. Navy websites, nor does it share the data obtained through such technologies with other departments or agencies without the user’s explicit consent. The U.S. Navy does not keep a database of information obtained from the use of cookies. Use of these cookies does not involve the collection of a visitor's PII.
 
Use of Cookies on npc.navy.mil:
NPC.Navy.mil creates a session cookie when you visit and destroys it as soon as you close your browser.

  • Distinguish unique users (cookies will remain on your computer for up to 6 months unless you clear the cookies)

USE OF THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES AND APPLICATIONS
Third-party websites and applications that are not owned, operated, or controlled by the U.S. Navy are integral to Internet-based operations across the U.S. Navy and used to augment official communication.
