What are cookies? The term "cookie" was coined by web browser programmer Lou Montulli. It was derived from the term "magic cookie", which is a packet of data a program receives and sends back unchanged, used by Unix programmers.
The purpose of the cookie is to help the DocuClix.com website keep track of your visits and activity. Many people find this useful so that they can store passwords on commonly used sites, or simply so they know what they have visited or downloaded in the past.

Tracking cookies may be used to create long-term records of multiple visits to the same site. Authentication cookies track whether a user is logged in, and if so, under what name.

How to Delete Cookies
Banning all cookies makes some websites difficult or impossible to navigate.

Where the installation of cookies is based on consent, such consent can be freely withdrawn at any time following the instructions provided in this document.
Instructions on how to manage cookies based on operating system and browser version.
Here’s how to manage your cookies in order to protect your online activity from prying eyes:
- Find the cookie storage. Each browser stores cookies in a slightly different location. In Internet Explorer 9, for example, you can find them by clicking “Tools,” then “Internet Options,” then “Privacy.” In Chrome, choose the Chrome menu on the toolbar, then click “Privacy.” Most browsers store cookie settings under the privacy options.
- Choose your setting. Every browser gives you a range of options for handling cookies. Internet Explorer, for instance, has a slider that you can adjust for greater or lesser amounts of protection. Chrome both lets you delete existing cookies in a single click and choose how future cookies are collected or stored.
