About cookies

The embedded Web server (EWS) places very small text files (cookies) on your hard drive when you

are browsing. These files let the EWS recognize your computer the next time you visit. For example,

if you have configured the EWS language, a cookie helps remember which language you have

selected so that the next time you access the EWS, the pages are displayed in that language. Some

cookies (such as the cookie that stores customer-specific preferences) are stored on the computer

until you clear them manually.

You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, or you can configure it to alert you every time a

cookie is offered, which allows you to decide which cookies to accept or refuse. You can also use

your browser to remove unwanted cookies.

NOTE: Depending on your printer, if you disable cookies, you also disable one or more of the

following features:
