This allows the site you're viewing to remember things about you, such as your preferences and history or to keep you logged in. Cookies may be stored on your computer for a short time (such as only while your browser is open) or for an extended period of time, even years. Cookies not set by this site will not be accessible to us.
These are the main cookies we set during normal operation of the software.

xxx_userid- Holds an encrypted user ID when a user logs in and is valid/successful.

This cookie holds a list of item ids which are eventually removed one by one as each action removes IDs from the list (delete, moved, changed, etc).

xxx_rid- Holds a unique 5 to 6 character referral ID code which can be used to send new users to the site under a specific and valid RID code for user to user marketplace promotion.
