Use of Cookies

The Sterling Commercial Credit Web site uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Sterling Commercial Credit pages, or register with Sterling Commercial Credit site or services, a cookie helps Sterling Commercial Credit to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Sterling Commercial Credit Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Sterling Commercial Credit features that you customized.

You can accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Sterling Commercial Credit services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

Sterling Commercial Credit secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Sterling Commercial Credit secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
