Use of Cookies

The Scecina website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a website page server.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the website server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Scecina pages, or register with Scecina site or services, a cookie helps Scecina to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Scecina website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Scecina features that you customized.
