Use of Cookies: Although the WCSIT-ISDA Site does not currently employ "cookies" to collect information, WCSIT and ISDA reserve the right to implement such technology and related technologies in the future without further notice. A cookie is a small data file that most web sites write to your computer’s hard drive or memory for record keeping purposes when you visit them. Cookies allow web sites to measure activity on the various areas of the site and to improve the user’s experience, for example by remembering passwords and viewing preferences.
