B. What are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files containing a string of characters that can be placed on your computer or device that uniquely identify your browser and / or device. The information used by browsers (browsers) (Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc.) can help to improve the functioning of the Website enabling it to recognize the user’s preferences each time the user returns.
Other technologies, including the data we store on your browser or device, the information associated with your device, and other software, are used for similar purposes.
Our Website does not request personal information from its visitors while navigating its content. Our Website collects personal information of its visitors / users only when they voluntarily provide it.

C. Cookies Types
There are generally four categories of cookies, “visit cookies”, “permanent cookies”, “first party cookies”, and “third-party” cookies. Our Company [usually] also uses [four categories of cookies].
• Session cookies
These are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your device’s browser only during your visit and are deleted when you close the browser.
• Permanent cookies (persistent cookies)
Those cookies remain on your browser even after the browser closes, sometimes for one year or more (the exact length of stay depends on the lifetime of each cookie). Permanent cookies are used when the site administrator may need to know who you are for more than one visit (e.g., remembering your username or your site configuration preferences).
• First-party cookies
These are cookies installed on the browser and / or hard drive of your device from the site you are visiting. This includes assigning a unique identifier to you to monitor your site navigation. Website administrators often use first-party cookies to manage visits and for identification purposes.
• Third-party cookies
These are cookies used by third parties, such as social networks to track your visits to the various sites they advertise. The site administrator has no control over these third-party cookies.
D. How long will the cookies stay on my device?
For how long a cookie will remain on your computer or on a mobile device depends on whether it is a persistent cookie or a session cookie. Session cookies will remain on your device only until you stop browsing. Permanent cookies remain on your computer or mobile device until they expire or are deleted.
