3. Website Cookies


On websites, a cookie is a small piece of information that a web server asks the user’s browser to store on the user’s computer, and then later their browser presents this information to the web server. In its simplest form, a cookie is an identifying number. On Horasis.org persistent cookies and session cookies are used. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to Horasis Sites or interact with our services without signing in again. In the event you sign up to one of our platforms, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by the service when you return to one of our sites. Session cookies only last as long as the session. We use cookies for anonymous user tracking.
