1. What is a "cookie"
Cookies are small text files stored on the hard drive by your web browser when you use websites.
The cookie is installed after a request is issued by a web server to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome) and is completely "passive" (does not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access information stored on the user’s hard drive). The cookies enable a website to recognize a browser.
A cookie consists of two components: the name and the content or the value of the cookie.
The cookie itself does not in most cases identify you.
2. What is the lifecycle of a cookie?
Cookies are administered by web servers. The lifecycle of a cookie is limited. It can be removed manually when you delete it or it expires. From a technical perspective, only the web server sending the cookie may access it again when you return to the website associated to the web server.
The lifecycle of a cookie may vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it was placed. As mentioned above, certain cookies are exclusively used during a single session ("session cookies") and are not remembered after you leave the website. They are temporarily stored in the cookie folder of the web browser which remembers you until you exit the respective website or you close the browser window. Other cookies are remembered and reused each time you return on the respective website ("persistent cookies"). They are stored on the hard drive of a computer or other device (and depend, in general, on its preset lifecycle). Persistent cookies include cookies placed by a website different than our website also known as "third party cookies", which may be used anonymously to memorize your interests, so that it delivers relevant advertising content.
Nevertheless, cookies may be deleted by you at any moment by accessing the browser settings.
3. What cookies do we use?
We use session cookies and persistent cookies. Depending on the purposes for which they are used cookies can be:
Essential - used to efficiently and quickly load the pages and offer features by distributing the workload across several computers, to authenticate you and to ensure your secure connection and prevent fraudulent use of your account or detect other malicious activity on the website.
Targeting and advertising - these cookies are used to record your behavior online and can be used to provide you with offers and services you might be interested in.
4. What are 3rd party cookies?
Depending on the website or domain placing the cookie, a cookie is 'first' or 'third' party. A first party cookie is set by a website visited by you directly. Third party cookies are set by third parties domains or websites which can place cookies through the website you visit, hence their name "third party cookies".
5. How can I stop cookie usage?
The policy may be updated from time to time in compliance with international rules and regulations, for any questions related to cookies contact us email@example.com.
