COOKIE USE POLICY
This policy refers to the cookies and the website operated by Qoobiss.com.
WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A cookie is a small file consisting of letters and numbers, which will be stored on the computer, device, mobile terminal or any other equipment from which a user accesses the internet. The Cookie is installed by a request issued from a web-server to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely “passive”. The cookie does not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user’s hard drive.
Cookies themselves do not require Personal Data to be used and, in most cases, do not identify internet users.
There are two main categories of cookies. Session cookies are temporarily created in the subfolder of the user’s browser while visiting the Website. After the user leaves the Website, the session cookie is deleted. Persistent cookies remain in the subfolder of the user’s browser and are reactivated when the user visits the Website again. A persistent cookie remains in the browser subfolder for the period set in the cookie file.
LIFETIME OF A COOKIE
The lifetime of a cookie can vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. As mentioned above, some cookies are used exclusively for a single session (session cookies) and are no longer retained once the user has left the Website, while some cookies are retained and reused each time the user returns to that Website (persistent cookies). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time by accessing the browser settings.
THIRD PARTY COOKIES
ADJUSTING BROWSER SETTINGS TO COOKIES
If the Website visitor is the only person using the device, he/she may set long expiry dates for his/her web browsing history. If he/she is using a shared device, it is recommended that he/she sets the browser to clear browsing data each time the browser is closed.
Generally, an application used to access web pages allows cookies to be saved on the device by default. These settings can be changed so that the automatic management of cookies is blocked by the web browser or the user is informed every time cookies are sent to his/her device.
