Q: How does Sysco collect statistics?

A: We collect aggregated site-visitation statistics using cookies. When someone visits the site for the first time, a cookie is placed on the person's computer (if the computer accepts cookies) or a previously posted cookie is read if the person has visited the site before. A cookie is a small file placed on your computer that contains a unique number. This number recognizes your computer when a user of your computer returns. All usage information is aggregated, which means we do not track individuals' use of the site.

Q: Can I set my browser to reject cookies?

A: Both Netscape and Microsoft Internet Explorer (MSIE) allow some level of cookie verification or choice. Netscape 3.0 and MSIE 3.0 allow you only an "alert before accepting cookies." This way you can voluntarily choose not to visit a site or areas of a site that use cookies.

To be alerted about accepting cookies, please follow one of these procedures (the following is only a brief list of some popular browsers):

  • If you are using Netscape Navigator 3.0, go to the "Options" menu, then to "Network Preferences," and then to "Protocols." Check the box that says, "Show an alert before accepting a cookie."

  • In Netscape 4.0+, go to "Edit" in the menu bar, then to "Preferences," then to "Advanced." Check the box that says, "Warn me before accepting a cookie."

  • In Netscape 6.0, go to "Edit" in the menu bar, then to "Preferences," then to "Advanced," then to "Cookies." Check the box that says, "Warn me before accepting a cookie."

  • In Internet Explorer 3.0, go to the "View" menu, then to "Options," then to "Advanced." Check the box that says, "Warn before accepting cookies."

  • In Internet Explorer 4.0, go to the "View" menu, then to "Internet Options," then to "Advanced." Check the box that says, "Prompt before accepting cookies."

  • In Internet Explorer 5.0, go to the "Tools" menu, then to "Internet Options," then to "Security," then to "Custom Level." In the "Cookies" section, go to the "Allow cookies that are stored on your machine" sub-section and select "Prompt."
