Web Cookies

Browser cookies, also known as HTTP cookies or web cookies, are small pieces of data that websites store on your computer or mobile device when you browse the internet. These cookies are used to gather information about your browsing activities, such as the pages you visit and your preferences.

When you visit a website, it sends a cookie to your browser, which stores it on your device. The next time you visit that website, your browser sends the cookie back to the website, allowing it to recognize you and remember your preferences. This helps enhance your browsing experience by personalizing content, saving login information, and improving website performance.

Browser cookies are categorized into two types:

  1. First-party cookies: These cookies are set by the website you are visiting and are used to enhance your experience on that particular website.

  2. Third-party cookies: These cookies are set by domains other than the website you are visiting. They are commonly used for advertising and tracking purposes, allowing advertisers to display targeted ads based on your browsing behavior.

Local Storage

Local storage, similar to browser cookies, is a method used by websites to store data on your computer or mobile device. It provides more storage capacity and a more efficient way to transmit information compared to traditional browser cookies. Local storage is typically used to remember user preferences, settings, and other relevant data.

Web Beacons

Web beacons, also known as web bugs or tracking pixels, are tiny transparent image files embedded on webpages. They are often used in conjunction with browser cookies to track user interactions with websites. When you visit a webpage containing a web beacon, your browser downloads the image file, and the server that hosts the web beacon receives information about your visit, such as your IP address and the time of interaction. Web beacons can be used to track user behavior, measure the effectiveness of advertisements, and gather data for analytics purposes.

Tracking URLs

Tracking URLs are specially formatted URLs that enable the monitoring of specific actions, such as clicks on links or selections made on webpages. They provide insights into user behavior and help track the performance of marketing campaigns or website features.

Device Identifiers

When you access services, a unique device identifier, excluding personal details like serial number, brand, or model, may be generated by the system and assigned to your device. Device identifiers are essential for providing services and cannot be disabled, as permitted by law.
