server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.
Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the

register with Dow Honda site or services, a cookie helps Dow Honda
to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process
of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses,
and so on. When you return to the same Dow Honda Web site, the information
you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Dow Honda
features that you customized.

accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies
if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience
the interactive features of the Dow Honda services or Web sites you visit.
