Certikin International Ltd

1. What is a Cookie?

Cookies or data storage and retrieval devices are files sent by a website to users’ browsers that are automatically stored on their devices so that the website is able to check users’ previous browsing habits and “recognise them”.

Cookies are able to remember other kinds of personal information, such as a user’s password so that it does not have to be entered each time a website is visited, or user preferences as regards the configuration of a website (language, screen resolution, amongst others).

Cookies are essential for the Internet to work properly, as well as having many advantages in the provision of interactive services as they make browsing and using the website easier. Cookies cannot harm your devices, and while they are enabled they help identify and solve errors.

In short, a cookie is simply a set of data about browsing habits that is stored on a user’s device and that websites detect and recognise so that they are able to “remember” that user’s browsing habits.

Please note that not all cookies imply a processing of personal data and, in the event of processing of such data, we will carry the processing according to our Privacy Policy
