The UK Information Commissioner (‘UK ICO’) defines a cookie as ‘small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.’ Any browser visiting our site will potentially receive cookies from us.
We use two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie lasts beyond the current session and is used for many purposes, such as recognizing you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to Stakester without signing in again. Since a persistent cookie stays in your browser, it will be read by Stakester when you return to one of our sites. Session cookies last only as long as the session. Once you close the page, the cookie is deleted.
