COOKIES AND WEB BEACONS
A “cookie” is a small data file that a website owner may write into a User’s hard drive for record keeping purposes when the User visits that site again but does not contain any PII. Cookies allow that site to measure activity on the site and enhance a User’s experience by saving Users from logging in or providing information each time the User re-visits the site and by customizing content based on the User’s interests. Cookies do have positive attributes such as remembering what information a User accessed on a web page to speed up that User’s transactions on related web pages. Especially for video content and other similar data, a User may be required to enable cookies from Questar in order to utilize the Website. A User can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of his or her browser.

If the User chooses not to accept these cookies, the User’s experience at the Website and other websites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended. Users should consult with their browser’s provider/manufacturer with any questions regarding disabling cookies.
A “web beacon” is a programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page (by using a programming function), but can also be used to transfer an individual’s unique user identification (often in the form of a cookie) to a database and associate the individual with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This would allow a website owner to track certain websites and individual visits online.
