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.

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. These capabilities include, but are not limited to, networking services, media sharing services, wikis and data mashups. A list of the U.S. Navy’s authorized pages and uses of these services is listed at (http://www.navy.mil/CommandDirectory.asp
). These third-party sites may collect PII and may make it available to the U.S. Navy and other users; however, the PII is not collected on behalf of, nor is it provided specifically for, the U.S. Navy. The U.S. Navy does not harvest and additionally collect, maintain, share or otherwise use such PII for any purpose other than that for which it is made available to all users.
We are making every effort to comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
Please bear with us as we make the necessary adjustments.
