COOKIES

AMC’s website may use cookies to collect and store personal information that you request.  This functionality allows you to see unique information that you have requested.  While your browser may allow you to reject cookies, our website requires that you accept all cookies for the website features and security measures to fully function.  A cookie is an element of data that a website can send to your browser that may then store it on your system.  A cookie does not retrieve any data from your hard drive, carry computer viruses, or capture your email address.  Two types of cookies are used; persistent cookies and temporary cookies.  Our site uses temporary session cookies to assist us in securing your activities and to enhance the performance of our website.  The cookies store a temporary session ID that allows the site to recognize that a page request has come from someone who has already logged on.  Once you leave the AMC website, the temporary cookies we place on your computer expires and is deleted from your computer.  Persistent cookies help a site remember you as a previous visitor and can enhance your use of a website by saving passwords and preferences while you are on the site.  Persistent cookies are permanently stored on your computer for future use.

SECURITY

Your personal information is password-protected for your privacy and security.  In certain areas we use 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption to provide data transmissions.  We have secured every secure page on our website with a digital certificate; this is shown via the site certificate that is resident on all login pages.  To view this certificate, click on the Secure Site symbol in these sections.
