- What Is a Cookie?
A cookie is a file or information sent and received between the browser and web server of each website visitor. There are two types of cookies, ‘session cookies’ and ‘persistent cookies’. Session cookies are temporarily stored while you are browsing this website. Persistent cookies are stored on your computer after you browse this website and are stored up to a specified expiration date or until you delete them manually.
- What Is a Web Beacon?
A web beacon is one of the technologies to identify the viewers of websites and HTML emails. Web beacons can be embedded in web pages and HTML emails, and this allows servers to read certain types of information from your device. When it recognizes that the viewer views certain content and opens or previews emails, the web beacon records information such as the date and time of browsing and the IP address of the device.
You can also disable the cookie and web beacon functions by setting your browser as described in ‘How to Disable Cookies and Web Beacons’ below. Please note, however, that if you disable these functions, some website features may not be available or some pages may not be displayed correctly.
