Cookie policy

The software uses two cookies to track login preferences and session information. It does not use cookies to track or distribute any sensitive information about you, your data, or your login session.

What are cookies?

Cookies are text-only strings of information that a website uses to store specific information. Cookies might exist for either a specific browser session or for an extended period. A session ID cookie terminates when a user closes the browser. No information is stored on the hard disk of your computer. A persistent cookie is located on the hard disk of your computer as a small text file for an extended period.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can disable this function by changing your browser settings. If you use more than one computer or browser, your cookie settings are set and stored separately by each browser. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser preferences permit it. However, to protect your privacy, your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you. It does not permit cookies sent to you by other sites.

A cookie typically contains the:
  • Website name or domain for which the cookie was generated.
  • Lifetime of the cookie.
  • Stored value or randomly generated unique number.

How does Rational Change use cookies?

Rational® Change uses cookies in the following ways:

  • Login preferences

    A login cookie (a persistent cookie) is used to preserve your personal login preferences as set on the login screen. Although the system stores your user ID, it never stores your password in a cookie. One login preference cookie is stored for each unique machine name or IP address used to log on to a Rational Change installation.

  • Report links and email notifications

    The reporting cookie (a session ID cookie) permits you to use your current session to start a report from a clickable link in a report or email notification. The clickable link does not contain any login or session information and, therefore, might be passed on without security concern. The reporting cookie is invalidated when you log out of the interface, when the server forces the session to expire, or when you close your browser. No user login information or password information is contained in the reporting cookie.

How do I disable and enable cookies?

You can accept or decline cookies by modifying your browser settings. However, you might not be able to use all of the interactive features of the software if you disable the cookies.

How do I delete stored cookies?

You can delete cookies that have been installed in the cookie folder of your browser. Consult your browser help for assistance.
Note: If you delete the Rational Change Info cookie, your login preferences are not saved for subsequent sessions.
