The Wateraft website uses “cookies” to help personalize the online experience of their users. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a webpage server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
The purpose of a cookie is to save you time by telling the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Wateraft webpages, or register with the Wateraft.com site or services, a cookie helps the Wateraft website 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 Wateraft website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Wateraft.com features that you previously 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 Wateraft website services.
