A Web cookie is text information that a Web server page can instruct your browser to write to your browser's cookie file. Many Web sites use cookies to track usage patterns on their site on a page by page basis. The cookie is anonymous unless you give the remote Web site personal information that they may associate with a cookie. For details on how cookies work, see the large colletion of information at Cookie Central.

Most Island Press pages do not use cookies. Any that do use them are for anonymous usage tracking. If you wish to control cookies you need to use a browser (such as current versions of Netscape and Microsoft Internet Explorer) that allows you to control cookie requests received by the browser (always accept, accept on approval, always deny).



Some pages use HTML forms, ranging from very simple e-mail forms to more extensive requests for information. Use of any information entered on a form is determined by the information owner of the particular forms page. Some forms are inherently anonymous, while the whole point of others is to enter information about yourself. But, absent a clear statement accompanying any form, if you have questions or doubts you should direct them to the owner of the page before entering the information.
