What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that a website can save to your computer or mobile device when you visit a page or site. The cookie will help the site or other sites to recognize your device the next time you visit it. Web beacons or other similar files can do the same. We use the term cookies in this policy to name all files that collect information in this way.
Cookies perform many different functions. For example, they help us remember your username or preferences, analyze how well our sites perform, or even allow us to recommend content that we think will be of interest to you.
Some cookies contain personal information - for example, if you clicked "Remember me" when you logged in to your account, the cookie will remember your username. Most cookies do not collect information that can identify you, but rather collect general information about how users access and use our sites or what their location is.
What types of cookies does the SmartCard site use?
In general, cookies perform 4 different functions:
1. Important cookies
Some cookies are vital to the functioning of our sites. They allow us to identify users who are registered as well as those who are our paid subscribers. They ensure that these users can, for example, comment below the articles, and that paid subscribers have the necessary level of access to the articles and sections on the sites. If a subscriber decides to stop these cookies, he will not have access to the content available only to subscribers.
2. Cookies related to the effectiveness of the site
3. Functional cookies
Functional cookies allow us to remember your preferences, such as font size and other personal settings. For example, cookies save you the time and effort of entering a username every time you visit our site.
4. Behaviorally targeted advertising cookies
Advertisers sometimes use their cookies to show you targeted ads. For example, advertisers may use an account based on sites you've previously visited to show you more relevant ads when you visit the SmartCards site. We believe it's helpful for our users to see ads that target their interests.
We may use third-party cookies to assist us in researching the market, tracking revenue, improving functionality, and monitoring compliance with our terms and conditions and copyright policy.
