Does TUCAA compromise the safety of children and younger users?
The safety of children is extremely important to us, as is an assurance that kids are exposed to appropriate content. This site does not contain any content that can be harmful to children (or to anyone else, for that matter).
Cookies are small pieces of information sent back to users. Their main purpose is to enhance the user's browsing experience by remembering preferencies or operations progress states (for example, in e-commerce applications).
There are two types of cookies:
Persistent cookies: these are stored on the user's computer in the form of a small text file. They are used to store information between browsing sessions.
Session cookies: these are kept only in the browser's memory. Once the browser is closed, the cookies are automatically deleted.
TUCAA uses only a session cookie to mantain the tree's status. This site does not use persistent cookies.
