The MLS Swift Web site use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page 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.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize MLS Swift pages, or register with the MLS Swift site or services, a cookie helps MLS Swift to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information. When you return to the same MLS Swift Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the MLS Swift features that you 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 MLS Swift services or Web sites you visit.
