What are cookies?
The most prominent cookie used by UGAL Index keeps track of the user's session. In addition to normal, typical uses of the session (such as maintaining the status of the current logged-in user, and temporarily holding state information during certain kinds of transactions), the session ID is also stored in a database to keep track of a temporary search history (which expires along with the user's session, unless the user opts to save searches to an account).
Other CookiesA few other cookies may be used at times:
- loggedOut - This cookie may be set when a user logs out.
- language - This cookie tracks the user's currently selected language preference.
- vufind_cart / vufind_cart_src - These cookies track items that the user has placed in their “Book Bag”.
