4. Cookies and Similar Tracking Technologies
The purpose of cookies is to remember the browser over time and to distinguish one browser instance (or user) from all others. Some cookies and other technologies may serve to track personal information previously entered by a web user on a site, and may record information such as a unique identifier, information you enter in a form, IP address, and other categories of data.
For example, if you personalize HIT pages, or register with Human-I-T site or services, a cookie helps Human-I-T 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 Human-I-T website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Human-I-T features that you customized.
