I. What are cookies and local data storage (cookies and similar technologies)?
A cookie is a file. Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you access websites. First-party cookies are those that are determined by the website you are visiting. Third-party cookies are those cookies that are used by domains other than the website you are visiting. Cookies contain an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent from a web server to a web browser and stored by the browser. The ID is then sent back to the server each time one of the server pages loads.
Cookies can be “permanent” cookies or “session” cookies: permanent cookies will be stored by the web browser and will remain valid until the expiration date, unless they are deleted by the user before the expiration date; the session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of a user session when the web browser is closed. Cookies usually do not contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that is stored about you may be related to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
We use both types of cookies on our website.
Most browsers allow cookies to be blocked. The user is free to block them at any time.
Like cookies, local storage technology, if used, allows websites to store information on a computer or mobile device. Local storage is usually permanent, and unlike cookies, data in local storage is not automatically transferred to the Internet every time the website that stored it is visited.
