User-Identifiable Information: Cookies related to User submission (forms)

This cookie is essential for user experience and is not set/used unless a form is submitted intentionally by User. The cookie itself does not contain any User-identifiable information. It acts as a hardware-identifying marker that enables access to User information temporarily stored server-side in encrypted form. As a security measure, this cookie (along with all related server-side information) is set to expire after ten minutes. On server-side, that information is destroyed. On browser-side, user action (like closing browser) may be required to fully remove expired cookie. For more information on this, visit the Security page. Blocking this cookie will make forms unusable.
