6.     What Is A Cookie and Why Is It Used For?

While visiting our website, it may store or retrieve information on your browser, mostly in the form of cookies, which are small text files designed to improve the usability, feel and security of our website. They do not harm your computer nor do they carry viruses.

They are installed upon the request issued by a web server, a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome). Cookies are completely “passive”, they do not harm your computer and they are not viruses (they do not contain software programs, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user’s hard drive).

Also, cookies make your interaction with websites safer and faster, as they can remember your preferences (for example, authentication, language) by sending the information they contain back to the original website (first-party cookie), or to a third-party cookie site, when you visit the site again and you use the same end device.

Cookies per se do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users. Personal data can be collected by using cookies only to facilitate certain user functionalities.

7.     What Is the Lifespan of a Cookie File?

A cookie’s lifespan may vary significantly depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are intended for a single use (such as session cookies), therefore they are not stored once the user leaves the site.

Other cookies are kept and reused every time the user returns to the site (persistent cookies). Thus, the information collected from cookies and from the use of Google Analytics tool is stored for up to 50 months.

However, cookies can be deleted by the user at any time using the browser settings.

8.     What Are Third Party Cookies?

Some content sections of sites may be provided through third-party cookies, as is the case with an ad. Such cookies can be placed on the site and are named cookies placed by third parties because they are not placed by the site owner. These types of third parties are also required to comply with the applicable legal regulations and the privacy policies of the site owner.

9.     How Can You Control Cookie Files?

You do not have to accept cookies and you can reject or block the use of cookies and delete all cookies currently stored on your computer or mobile device. You can do this via the voting button or find out more details regarding your particular browser by clicking “help” on your browser’s menu.

Moreover, if you do not want your browser to keep your work, you can browse the web privately in incognito mode. Thus, the browser will not save your browsing history, cookies, and site data or information entered into the forms. The existing cookies in your regular browser are not shared with such a browsing session. In addition, any cookies that are created then are automatically deleted. You can learn more about how incognito works by visiting https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95464?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en_US
