A cookie is a small piece of computer code that enables Web servers to "identify" visitors. Each time you initiate a session on NRC Picker Web sites, a cookie is set in order to identify you and determine your access privileges. Cookies do not store any of the information you provide to the site. They are simply identifiers.

From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information.

Survey information will be used for purposes of NRC Picker research and/or monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
