Use of Cookies

This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Broward County Medical Association Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Broward County Medical Association features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Broward County Medical Association services or Web sites you visit.
