A cookie is a text fragment given to a Web Browser by a Web Server. The browser then stores the fragment and sends it back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This allows the server to identify a user and provide customised pages for them.

Cookies do not usually contain personal information – rather they will hold a link which identifies the user on the browser to the server.

The Gordano product configuration pages and GLWebMail use cookies to maintain information about who has logged on to the system during a session. If you don’t wish to use cookies, Gordano products can be set to use IP address identification only.
