What types of cookies do we use?

There are a number of different types of cookies, however, our website uses two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to AACRAO or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by AACRAO when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our services (for example, meeting registration or abstract submissions). Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
