A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive.
There are two main types of cookie:
- Session cookies - these are deleted when you finish browsing a website and are not stored on your computer longer than this.
- Persistent cookies - these are stored on your computer after you have finished using a website so that the website provider can remember your preferences the next time you use it.
You can find more information about the individual cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them in the table below:
First Party Cookie
|Session cookie|| |
This is a non-persistent cookie which lasts the duration of the website session. It exists in temporary memory
Third Party Cookies
Cookie used to identify individual clients behind a shared IP address and apply security settings on a per-client basis. For example, if the visitor is in a coffee shop where there are a bunch of infected machines, but the specific visitor's machine is trusted (e.g. because they've completed a challenge within your Challenge Passage period), the cookie allows us to identify that client and not challenge them again.
|Google Analytics|| |
