1 – What are cookies?
Cookies are small files of numbers and letters that are stored in a user’s browser when they visit a website, for record-keeping purposes. When a user returns to the website, their browser sends these files back to the website, allowing personalized content to be shown on the user’s screen.
“Session Cookies” are temporary Cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the Website.
“Persistent Cookies” remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). These cookies are not cleared when the browser is closed. This type of cookie is used to recall user preferences so that every time a site is visited, the user’s preferred settings are automatically provided.
When we use Session Cookies to track the total number of visitors of our Website, this is done on an anonymous aggregate basis (as cookies do not in themselves carry any personal data).
We may also employ cookies to remember your computer when it is used to return to the Website to help customize your Simbud experience. We may associate personal information with a cookie file in those instances.

If you would like to monitor or prevent cookies from being set in your browser, you can modify your browser settings to receive notifications whenever cookies are being used or to completely block the storage of cookies. You may also delete cookies that are already stored in your browser. Where you will find these settings will depend on the browser you use. Generally, using your browser’s “Help” section will help you locate these settings.
If cookies are necessary for the use of the Website (functionality), those session cookies do not require your prior consent. Those session cookies will expire after you have left the homepage.
