Homesitters Use of Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

One of the cookies we use is essential for parts of the site to operate and has already been set when you viewed the first page of the site (see "Essential site cookies" below). You may delete and block all cookies from this site, but parts of the site may not work.

Essential site cookies (Session Cookies)
Session Cookies allow you to proceed through many pages of a site quickly and easily without having to authenticate or reprocess each new area you visit. A common example of this functionality is the shopping basket feature of an e-commerce site. When you select some items for purchase, the session cookie remembers your selection so your shopping basket will have the items you selected when you are ready to check out. Session Cookies are deleted as soon as you close your browser.
