A cookie is a small file stored on your computer or mobile device that allow us to separate you from the millions of other people on the Internet. The cookie allows us to "remember" your actions or preferences over time. However, a cookie does not contain information about you as a person; for example, a cookie may identify your computer’s IP address as having visited www.acuitybrands.com
last Tuesday at 11:24 a.m., but it cannot alone identify you as Bob Smith. Of course, if you independently provide us with other information such as your name and IP address, we may be able to associate the information in a cookie with that other information and thereby identify you.
