A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies may be either “persistent” or “session” based. A persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until it’s set expiry date. That is unless deleted by the user before the expiry date. A session cookie on the other hand will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
Normally, a cookie’s domain attribute will match the domain that is shown in the web browser’s address bar. This is called a first-party cookie. A third-party cookie, however, belongs to a domain different from the one shown in the address bar. This sort of cookie typically appears when web pages feature content from external websites, such as banner advertisements.
We may also use Google Analytics to analyse the use of our website. Google Analytics gathers information about website use by means of, you guessed it cookies.
Third-party cookies are set by companies other than Crazy Chums, such as analytics providers and advertisers such as those from Facebook and Google.
