Wellingham Financial collects certain information from users' browsers using small text files called "cookies." Wellingham Financial uses session ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in.

We also use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID (but not your password) to make it easier for you to login when you come back to Wellingham Financial on future visits. We encode our cookies so that only we can interpret the information stored in them, but they do not contain personally identifiable information. Users can remove or block the persistent cookie using the settings in your browser if you want to disable the feature.
