The use of the Cookies
A cookie file, also known as a “browser cookie”, is a small text file saved by a browser and associated with a specific server. Each time Your browser issues a request to a server, it adds the information saved on the specific files associated with that server to the request. Browser cookies can be “Persistent” or “Session” cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your personal computer or mobile device when You go offline, while Session cookies are deleted as soon as You close your web browser. Browser cookies are usually used for identifying users or saving their preferences. For more information please see What is a browser cookie on Wikipedia.
An application storage is a technology allowing browsers and applications to store information on a browser or device to be used later on. In a similar way to browser cookies, application storage can be “Persistent” or “Session” and is used in many ways, for example to cache information or remember preferences. For more information please see What is a web storage on Wikipedia. Note that Our Service may use a different technology than web storage, but with a similar concept.
A web beacon is a web request which is not originated by the user, and is automatically sent from a browser or an application to a server. Web beacons are usually used for notifying of users’ activity. For more information please see What is a web beacon on Wikipedia.
