When you interact with the MenuCalc LLC Website we strive to make that experience easy and meaningful. When you come to our Web site, our Web server sends a cookie to your computer. Cookies are files that Web browsers place on a computer’s hard drive and are used to tell us whether customers and visitors have visited the Site previously. Standing alone, cookies do not identify you personally. They merely recognize your browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to MenuCalc LLC, either by responding to a promotional offer, opening an account, or registering on the Site, you remain anonymous to MenuCalc LLC. Cookies come in two flavors: session and persistent-based. Session cookies exist only during an online session.
