Does the website require me to accept cookies?

Visitors to the website can access the website without accepting cookies.

What is a cookie?

There are two general types of cookies that websites make use of; Session cookies and Persistent cookies. Session cookies are these cookies that are created by a website that exists only as long as your visit to that website. They are not stored permanently on your computer. Persistent cookies are those cookies stored on your computer from a website for some period of time and are used when you return to that site in the future.

What exactly does a cookie do?

A cookie provides a way for a website to keep track of a user's internet browsing patterns and preferences. Cookies contain a range of website addresses for which they are valid. When a user's web browser encounters those addresses again, it sends those specific cookies to the Web server. For example, if a user's specific preferences were stored as a cookie, it would save that person from typing in the same information all over again when accessing that service for the second and subsequent times.

What options do I have with respect to cookies?

You can have your browser disable cookies or prompt you before accepting a cookie. Look for the cookie options in your browser under the "Options" or "Preferences" menu.

Will my information be disclosed to third parties?

The Orange Fire Marshal's Office will not distribute, share, sell or lease your information to third parties for direct marketing or email marketing purposes. The information collected at this site will remain confidential to the extent permitted by State or Federal law. State law may, however, require disclosure upon request of certain information collected at this site should it be deemed "public information" under the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act.

What if the Privacy Policy chages?
