example, if you personalize Elmira College pages, or register with
Elmira College site or services, a cookie helps Elmira College to
recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This
simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such
as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you
return to the same Elmira College Web site, the information you
previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the
Elmira College features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web
browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify
your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you
choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience
the interactive features of the Elmira College services or Web
sites you visit.

Layer (SSL) protocol.
