Setting National Editions
The Epoch Times is now found in several countries around the world, and our website was redesigned in August 2005 to accomodate the ever-growing readers who were visiting our website from countries around the world.
In order to accomodate this, The Epoch Times website allows the user to choose which edition of the front page he or she would like to view. This allows the reader to view The Epoch Times website with local news that would be of interest to the reader.
In order to do this, a cookie with value “countrycode” is used to store the internal number of the region that has been chosen. This is done to remember the user’s preference and not bother him or her with a question on every visit to the site.
We ask for your e-mail address for e-newsletter subscriptions. However, we do not give this information out. Further, your e-mail address is not stored on this webserver; instead, they are stored in a secure server.
Please note that this information is provided by your browser automatically, and is available to any website that you visit.
We use this information simply for analyzing the traffic to the website and improving our users’ experience.
