Web Site User Information

As with other commercial web sites, the DayStar Ministries web site makes use of a standard technology referred to as “Cookies” and web server log files to gather information about how our web site is being used.  This technology enables us to obtain information such as the date and time the web site was visited, the pages viewed and the time spent on the web site.  A “cookie” is a very small text document.  When you visit a web site, that computer asks your computer for permission to store this small text file.  Each visited web site can send its own “cookie” to your browser if your browser allows such activity.  In order to protect your privacy, your browser only permits a web site to access the “cookies” it has already sent to you and not the “cookies” sent by other sites.  Browsers are usually set to accept “cookies,” but if you prefer not to receive them, your browser settings may be changed to refuse them.  If you choose not to allow “cookies” on your browser, some areas of our site may not perform as efficiently as possible. Please be assured that a “cookie” cannot retrieve any other information from your computer or pass on computer viruses.  When you visit our web site, “cookies” are used to differentiate you from other users.  These “cookies’ and our web site server logs help us monitor the number of persons who visit the site and which areas are more popular.  This enables us to manage and improve the site to better serve the needs of those who visit.  This information will not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not seek to store any information provided by ‘cookies.”
