What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on a PC, tablet or smartphone during a visit to a website.
What types of cookies are there?
There are four types of cookies that may be used on the Webpower knowledgebase.
- Essential: these cookies are essential to ensure that Webpower’s websites perform well. They allow you to navigate our websites and make use of the features we offer. These cookies do not identify users as individuals. Not accepting these cookies may affect the performance of our Webpower platform or (parts of) our websites.
- Functional: these cookies allow our websites to remember the choices you made during your visit (e.g. your username or language settings) in order to provide a more personalised online experience. They may also allow you to view videos, play games and use social tools such as blogs and chatrooms. The information gathered by these cookies may include information that you provided and which can identify you as a person, e.g. your username. We will always be open about what information we gather, what we do with it and whom we share it with (if applicable). Not accepting these cookies may affect the performance and functionality of the Webpower platform or our websites and it may limit your access to the content on our platform or our websites.
- Performance: these cookies help us gain insight into how visitors use our websites by providing information about the areas they visited, the time they spent on our website and any problems they encountered along the way, e.g. errors. This helps us improve the performance of our websites. These cookies do not identify you as a person. All data is anonymised and aggregated.
- Targeting/advertisements: these cookies track you for extended periods of time across multiple websites and are capable of building a profile. This can be used to segment you based on your specific interests. These cookies are often used to send more personalised emails and show more relevant advertisements online. An advertisement network places one or more cookies on your computer or that of other website visitors via a third-party website. The network can access these cookies when you visit websites that are part of this advertisement network. Most of these cookies can track consumers via their IP address, so they can gather information that can identify you as a person.
The various types of cookies may consist of “session cookies” and “persistent cookies.” Session cookies are temporary cookies that are stored on your computer/device until you leave the Webpower website. A persistent cookie will be stored on your computer for much longer or until it is manually removed (how long the cookie is stored on your device depends on the “lifespan” of the specific cookie and your browser settings).
