MHPOD uses web storage to persist session information as you use the site and enhance performance for returning visitors.

If you click the logout button in the top right of the interface, all stored information is permanently removed.

We use sessionStorage to cache your profile and dashboard information.  sessionStorage is removed by your browser automatically whenever you end your browser session or if you click logout.

We use localStorage to store non-personal information such as the list of topics, their descriptions and the search index. Using localStorage means that this information is available not only as you browse about the portal, but it's also cached between sessions, so pages load faster when you return next time plus it makes the site more resilient to short network disruptions.

Normally access to web storage is controlled via your cookie settings. If you are seeing a warning on the portal that web storage isn't available, please check your cookie settings.
