Alpharetta Convention and Visitors Bureau has implemented this policy in an effort to demonstrate our strong commitment to online privacy. This policy details how we gather, use and protect the information that we collect from our Web site, located at www.awesomealpharetta.com.

Cookies
A cookie is a small text file generated by a Web site’s server and placed on a user’s hard drive.  Cookies enable the site and your browser to interact in such a way that the site is able to present you with the most appropriate options and to customize services to your interests, based on your previous use of the Web site.  For example, a cookie can be used to store registration information in an area of the site so that you do not need to re-enter it on subsequent visits to that area.

Because the early use of cookies to track users’ navigational habits were not disclosed to users, their use has raised privacy concerns.  However, most Web sites now use cookies to improve your navigational experiences and save you time.  Alpharetta Convention and Visitors Bureau [may] use cookies to store a user’s individual preferences and system parameters.
