AFPI may install "cookies" to help you personalize your experience with SINEHUB. A “cookie” is an HTTP file that is placed on your browser by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your device. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by the web page server of SINEHUB that issued the cookie to you.
You can accept or decline cookies by modifying your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. Unless you have modified your browser setting to decline the cookie, if you continue to use SINEHUB, the cookie will be automatically installed.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time by informing the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize the website pages, or register with Linked Sites or services, a cookie helps SINEHUB to recall your behavioral information on subsequent visits. When you return to SINEHUB, your behavioral information from your previous visits can be retrieved, so SINEHUB and its features can be customized based on your data.
