Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
Cookies – A “cookie” is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s device, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the Site each time the visitor returns. They provide certain information to us or to third parties about how online services are used (like which pages visitors visit most often), about users’ preferences (like language preference) and for site functionality or security (allow registered users to login).
Flash Cookies – A “flash cookie”, otherwise known as locally shared objects (LSOs), is a piece of data that websites which use Adobe Flash may store on a user’s computer. These cookies can be retrieved whenever a user accesses a page containing a Flash application. Flash cookies are commonly used in website advertisements, videos and games.
Web Beacons – A “web beacon” (also called transparent GIFs, web bugs, pixels, or action tags) is an often-transparent graphic image placed on a website or in an email that is used to monitor the activity of users (e.g. count visitors to the online service or count how many emails we sent that were actually opened).
