Please read carefully the information in this document that expresses the policy of eDREAM regarding the general conditions of use of the website and cookies.
What are cookies?
“Internet cookie” (also known as “cookie browser” or HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie” is a small file of letters and numbers that will be stored on your computer, mobile terminal or other equipment on which the Internet is accessed. They are widely used to make websites work more efficiently as well as to provide information to website owners.
Cookies are not used to determine the personal identity of anyone who is visiting our website. It also does not contain software, viruses or spyware and can’t access the information on the user’s hard drive.
Generally there are three types of cookies:
- Session cookie – Also known as a “temporary cookie”, this type of cookie attaches itself to a user’s computer when they enter and browse a website. The cookie is then erased when the user closes the Web browser or exits the site. A session cookie does not collect information from a user’s computer or activity while it sits on the system.
- Persistent cookie – Unlike session cookies, a persistent cookie does not disappear after a user exits a site. These types of cookies have a specific expiration date with the cookie continuing to transmit information to a website’s server every time a user visits the site until the expiry date comes up. For this reason, persistent cookies are also known as “tracking cookies” as marketers can use the information obtained from the cookies to study user behavior over a certain period of time. Persistent cookies are also used to keep users logged into certain website, thus eliminating the need for them to enter their log in credentials each time they want to access the site.
- Third-Party Cookie – A good example of third-party cookies is through advertisements or banners for third-party products or services present on a website. Cookies are also present in the social media “buttons” commonly found on websites. When a user encounters an article or a piece of information, the website will provide the option to share the content thereby activating the designated social media’s cookies.
