- Log you in to the PowerDMS application services (the “Services”),

- Better understand how people are using the PowerDMS.com website (the “Site”) and Services and improve and promote the Site and Services based on that information.
Types of Cookies and How to Opt Out
We use both temporary and persistent cookies on our website. Temporary (also called session-based) cookies exist only during one session and are deleted from your computer or mobile device when you close your browser or turn off your computer or device. Persistent cookies stay on your device after you close your browser or turn off the device. If you choose to disable cookies, this may limit your use of certain features or functions of the Site and Services. Below we describe how we use different categories of cookies and your choices for changing their data collection settings:
|Category of Cookies||Description||How to Opt Out|
|Required Cookies||Required cookies enable you to use specific features, such as accessing the secure area of the site to access the Services. If you have chosen to identify yourself to us, we may place a cookie that allows us to uniquely identify you when you are logged into the site and to process your online transactions and requests.||Required cookies are essential for operation of the Services, so it is not possible to opt out of these cookies.|
|Functional Cookies||Functional cookies permit us to remember information you have provided or choices you have made (such as your username or language) and to provide personalized features. Functional cookies may also be used to improve how our Site and Services function and to help us provide you with more relevant communications, including marketing communications. These cookies may use our own or third-party technology to collect information about how the Site is used, including which pages are viewed most often.
|Most browsers and devices accept cookies by default, but the browser and device settings allow you to clear or decline cookies. However, if you opt out of functional cookies, some of the features of our Site and/or Services may not function properly. You can learn how to control functional cookies via your browser settings, here.

Do Not Track (DNT)
Some browsers offer a “do not track” (DNT) option. Because no common industry or legal standard for DNT has been established or adopted, authorized third-parties which place third-party cookies may or may not respond to DNT signals. We will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology.
