What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data, saved in text files that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in (this site does not offer user registration). Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (i.e. “third party cookies”). This website does not utilize neither advertising nor analytics.
Types of cookies
The list below explains the types of cookies we use on our website and why we use them.
- Necessary: These cookies are essential for this website to perform its basic functions. These include cookies set by our CDN or web server, or by the platform on which this website runs. We do not control the setting of these types of cookies.
- Security: Our platform uses these cookies to help identify and prevent potential security risks. We do not control the use of these types of cookies.
Expiration of cookies
The cookies that are set by the server or the platform on which this website runs are automatically deleted once the browser is closed. In some cases, they have a very short life span, lasting just a few minutes (i.e. they are “session cookies”). The cookies that are used to store your preferences, such as your selection of the color theme, will auto-expire after one year, or when you clear them from your browser (i.e. they are “persistent cookies”). Depending on your browser, to clear your cookies go to History (e.g. CTRL+H) and select 'Clear browsing data'.
