- What are ‘cookies’ and local data storage (cookies and similar technologies)?
Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you access websites. Cookies of the domain owner (first-party cookies) are those that are determined by the website you are visiting. Third-party cookies are those cookies that are used by domains other than the website you are visiting.
Like cookies, local data storage technology, if used, allows websites to store information on a computer or mobile device. Local storage is usually permanent, and unlike cookies, data in local storage is not automatically transferred via the Internet every time the website, which stored it, is visited.
- How do we use ‘cookies’ and similar technologies?
- improve the performance of the relevant websites and the users’ experience,
- measure the advertising display and online media by determining when, how often, on which websites certain online ads, media, and other content appear on your device.
