Cookies are small files, typically letters and numbers, that are loaded on a visitor's computer or mobile device when the user accesses a web site. Cookies are useful because they allow a web site to recognize a user's device, thus enhancing the user experience. They may also be used for other purposes such as web site statistics, analysis, user activity, targeted advertising, user preferences, and log on information (authentication).

Altius IT uses cookies to help us remember and process e-commerce purchases, understand and save visitor preferences for future visits, and compile information about web site traffic and user interaction so that we may offer better user experiences. We contract with third-party service providers to assist us in offering services and better understanding our web site visitors.
