How do I accept cookies for my SPS account
while maintaining high cookie privacy settings?
If you have set up Internet Explorer to restrict
or block cookies, but are interested in becoming an SPS account
holder (which requires cookies to function), there is a way to maintain
your security level but accept the cookies required for your SPS
Use Internet Explorer to visit any page of on Sorcerer's
Place and you will see a small symbol that looks like an eye with
a red circle next to it in the bottom right section of the Internet
Explorer window. When you hover over this image with your mouse
cursor it will say "Privacy Report." Double click this
icon and it will bring up the Privacy Report window for your browser.
In the lower right corner of the Privacy Report window you will
see a "Settings…" button, click this button to open
the Internet Properties window. The lower portion of the Internet
Properties window includes a "Web Sites" section with
an "Edit…" button; click the "Edit..."
button to open the Per Site Privacy Actions window.
The "Manage Web sites:" section of the
Per Site Privacy Actions window will allow you to scroll through
the websites you have blocked or allowed to create cookies on your
computer in numerical/alphabetical order and view the status of
cookies for each of the sites listed. Most on the list will say
"Always Block" or "Always Allow." To approve
cookies for Sorcerer's Place, find sorcerers.net on the domain list
and double click the name. This will cause sorcerers.net to appear
in the "Address of Web site:" field near the top of the
window. Once sorcerers.net appears in the field, set it to Allow
by clicking the "Allow" button. Double check the "Manage
Web sites:" window to ensure that sorcerers.net is now set
to "Always Allow." Click okay on both the "Per Site
Privacy Actions" and the Internet Properties windows, then
close any remaining windows. At this time it is best to close Internet
Explorer and reopen it before visiting Sorcerer's Place again to
complete your SPS account application to ensure it now correctly
accepts the required SPS account cookies.
