The visisearch.com website uses "cookies" to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a webpage 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 personalise visisearch.com pages or register with the visisearch.com website or services a cookie helps visisearch.com to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information such as billing addresses, shipping addresses and so on. When you return to the same visisearch.com web pages the information you previously provided can be retrieved so you can easily use the visisearch.com features that you customised.
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 visisearch.com services or web pages you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
