What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each Website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Please note that if you are browsing in a private session any forms that you submit on the site may not be received.
Harcourt has contracted with recognized industry leaders for website management and analytics including software companies (this list is current as of Sept. 2022): Google, Google Analytics, Olark, and Campaign Monitor. These companies maintain their own strict privacy policies.
