It is no secret that websites use a certain kind of web technology to collect user data, and we are no exception. Here we want to describe how this all works.
We want our users to know how their personal information is collected and used. That is why we have created a coherent policy clearly explaining when we gather cookies, what methods we use to collect them, and what the reasons for amassing such data are.
What Is a Cookie?
Cookies are small text files we send to your computer or mobile device. They are unique to your account or your browser. Session-based cookies last only while your browser is open and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies last until you or your browser delete them or until they expire.
Some cookies are associated with your account and personal information in order to remember that you are logged in and which services you order. Other cookies are not tied to your account but are unique and allow us to carry out analytics and customization, among other similar things.
Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit our website or use our services, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s consistent with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions faster and more secure.
Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help us market more effectively to users that we and our partners believe may be interested in our services. They also help us get information on aggregated auditing, research, statistics and reporting, and detect when content has been shown to you.
How to Disable Cookies without any Problems?
If you really want to disable this function, you can do that in your browser setting without problems. Just open the appropriate window and turn them off. The same with other web resources. One can disable cookies on any website they are browsing. Please note that disabling cookies may drastically change your experience with certain websites, and not necessarily to the best, or even restrict you access. The website will no longer remember you as a registered visitor, you will need to log in again and again, and the security will be loosened as well.
