COOKIE USAGE OVERVIEW
To support our website users and visitors and deliver rich digital experiences, Aegisys uses different types of cookies across our web properties. This page provides an overview of these cookies, their purpose and the efforts Aegisys has put in place to ensure our cookie policies comply with applicable laws, including the GDPR before its implementation date in May of this year.
To the extent that cookies allow to identify a particular website user, the GDPR requires us to be more transparent about our usage of cookies and your rights, and ensure you have effective choices.
What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a small piece of data that is stored locally on a computer or mobile device which allows a website to “remember” your actions, activity or preferences over time. Most browsers support cookies, but also allow users to decline or delete them whenever they’d like. Cookies are used for many different functions including auto-filling forms, counting website visitors, personalizing content, serving relevant ads to you, recording user preferences and for authentication and security.
Cookies can be classified as follows:
Session Cookie – a temporary cookie which expires and is permanently deleted when a browser is closed and the current session ends.
Persistent Cookie – these cookies remain on the device and can span multiple sessions or website visits, and will be deleted based on a predetermined expiration date specified in the cookie.
First-Party Cookie – cookies which are stored by the website domain being visited by the user.
Third-Party Cookie – cookies which are stored by a different domain and are referenced by the domain being visited. For example, if you visit a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.
