IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.  Some of the services available from the Town's website may require the use of "cookies". The Town's website uses "per-session" cookies only. Per-session cookies are small files that are temporarily stored in your computer's memory and are deleted when you leave the Town's web site. One use of cookies is to save the contents of your "shopping basket" as you purchase goods or services.
