OPHA strongly encourages you to read their privacy policies and always use caution when asked to divulge personal information.

A cookie is a small piece of information that a web site stores on your computer. It is retrieved automatically whenever you return and some of its contents are stored in log files that are then used to generate periodic statistical reports. These reports help us to evaluate and improve our web sites by tracking global indicators such as the total number of visitors, total pages viewed, most popular documents retrieved, etc.

However, some parts of the OPHA web site, and affiliated projects' web sites, may not work properly if you choose not to accept cookies.
