About Cookies

Cookies were originally designed to help a website distinguish a user’s browser as a previous visitor and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site. A cookie is a small string of text that a website can send to your browser. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or capture your email address. Currently, websites use cookies to enhance the user’s visit; in general, cookies can securely store a user’s ID and password, personalize home pages, identify which parts of a site have been visited, or keep track of selections in a “shopping cart.”

If you are just browsing Avalon’s website, a cookie identifies only your browser. It is possible to set your browser to inform you when a cookie is being placed — this way, you have the opportunity to decide whether to accept the cookie. If you are just browsing our site, you do not have to accept a cookie and you can still continue browsing the site. Accepting a cookie does not affect your ability to decline email offers. Here is how to set your cookie preferences:
