To function properly, RefTown requires that you enable cookies in your web browser. Enabling cookies allows the website to recognize you as you browse through the site. For most functionality, only "Session" cookies are required. These are automatically deleted every time you close your browser. In some browsers, you can enable only session cookies separately from normal cookies. To have the site remember your username and association, you will need "First-Party" cookies. Reftown never requires cookies called "Third-Party" cookies.
