What are Cookies and What are They Used for?
A cookie is a small string of information that the website you visit transfers to your computer for identification purposes. Cookies can be used to follow your activity throughout the Website and that information helps us to understand your preferences and improve your experience.
NinjaMock cookies do not collect personal information from you, and we do not combine the general information collected through cookies with other personal information you may provide to personally identify you.
What Types of Cookies Do We Use?
On the Website, both first-party and third-party cookies are allowed. First-party cookies are cookies that are set by NinjaMock. Third-party cookies are set by a domain other than ours.
NinjaMock cookies may be session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain on your device only until you leave the Website. A persistent cookie remains on your device for the period specified in the cookie or until you manually delete it.
Based on their function, our Website uses the following categories of cookies:
- Strictly necessary cookies (security, payment): These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the Website. Without these cookies, the services you have asked for, like shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided.
- Performance cookies (analytics, A/B testing): These cookies allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the Website when they’re using it. This helps us to improve the way the Website works, for example by making sure users are finding what they need easily.
- Functionality: These cookies allow the Website to remember the choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) to provide a more personalized online experience. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customize. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or asking questions and commenting thereon.
- Advertising cookies: These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks with NinjaMock’s – as the Website operator’s – permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by third parties.
