What is a cookie?
A “cookie” is a tiny data file that is transfered onto your computer, mobile phone, or any other device that you use to access this site, and is generally used for authentication and tracking. Every cookie expires after a certain period of time, but that period varies depending on what the cookie is used for and how your browser is configured.
Cookies are often categorized based on how long they remain active before they expire. A “session” cookie is one that generally expires when you close your web browser or mobile application. A “persistent” cookie is one that remains in your device, even after you close your browser or mobile application. A persistent cookie expires according to the duration set by the webpage owner, or when you delete it manually.
You may remove or disable cookies through your browser settings. For more information on how to manage your cookie options, please see “What are your cookie options?“ below.
What types of cookies do I use and for what purposes?
I use only a single functionality cookie named “nette-samesite“, which gets deleted when you exit the browser.
What are your cookie options?
- remove or disable specific locally-stored data on your browser’s settings (you can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent);
- use a browser that can block third-party cookies; or
- install a plug-in to block locally-stored data, if one is available.
Turning off the browser’s cookies will prevent tracking pixels from tracking your specific activity. A tracking pixel may still record an anonymous visit from your IP address, but unique information will not be recorded. If you do not want to receive tracking pixels, you will need to disable HTML images in your browser-based email client, and that may affect your ability to view images in other emails that you receive.
