Cookies (also called web cookies, Internet cookies or browser cookies) are small blocks of data created by a web server while a user is browsing a website and placed on the user’s computer or other device by the user’s web browser. Cookies are placed on the device used to access a website, and more than one cookie may be placed on a user’s device during a session.
Our website takes privacy very seriously, and this is why in the created banner you will have full visibility regarding the full inventory of cookies used, what type of cookies they are, the purpose of each cookie as well as the expiration period for each of them.
2. How are cookies used:
Cookies serve useful and sometimes essential functions on the web. They enable web servers to store stateful information on the user’s device or to track the user’s browsing activity (including clicking particular buttons, logging in, or recording which pages were visited in the past). They can also be used to save for subsequent use information that the user previously entered into form fields, such as names, addresses, passwords, and payment card numbers.
Authentication cookies are commonly used by web servers to authenticate that a user is logged in, and with which account they are logged in. Without the cookie, users would need to authenticate themselves by logging in on each page containing sensitive information that they wish to access.
Cookies also allows the website to remember your browsing preferences, measuring how you use the website so we can make sure it meets your needs, and in general improving your browsing experience. Cookies help us make sure that content and advertisements you see on a website are more relevant to your preferences.
