A “cookie” is a small text file that is placed on your hard drive 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 be read only by a Web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

Each time you initiate a session on ncci.com, the site sets the cookie in order to identify you and determine your access privileges. Cookies do not store any of the information that you have provided to the site. They are simply identifiers.

You have the ability to delete cookie files from your hard drive at any time. However, you should know that cookies may be necessary to provide you with access to much of the content and features of ncci.com. We use cookie technology to enable registered users to move quickly and securely through access-controlled areas of the site. Cookie technology also enables registered users to take advantage of certain useful features on the site, including “remember my password.”
