We understand your need to be in control of your personal information. Our Internet privacy policy is:

You do not have to give us personal information to visit our site.

We may collect personally identifiable identification (name, street address, email address, etc.) only if specifically and knowingly provided by you.

Cookies

What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of information that is sent to your browser – along with a Web page – when you access a Web site. There are two kinds of cookies. A session cookie is a line of text that is stored temporarily in your computer's memory. A session cookie is destroyed as soon as you close your browser. A persistent cookie is a more permanent line of text that gets saved by your browser to a file on your hard drive.

MAXIMUS Federal Services uses session cookies only. We do not use any persistent cookies.

How Does MAXIMUS Federal Services use Cookies?

Cookies are used to remember your viewing preferences on maxa.layer8group.com. It allows us to improve our website. We can learn what information is important to you, our visitor. We can then revise our website to better meet the users needs.

If you do not have cookies enabled, you may not be able to view all pages on our site. If you do have cookies enabled, your preferences will be saved for the entire visit to the site. This preference will not be saved between site visits, however.

We have set our software so that your browser will only return cookie information to the domain where the cookie originated (in this case, maxa.layer8group.com). No other site can request it. Note: Regardless of the particular uses for cookies on our Web site, we will not share any cookie information with any third parties.

You can order your browser to accept all cookies or to alert you every time a cookie is offered. Then you can decide whether to accept one or not.
