What are cookies and why do we use them?
Our expert Authors have opened their discussions for commenting. In these blogs we invite and encourage participation. Cookies stored in the software remember where you last commented, and what you wrote.
What are the different types of cookies?
These cookies are only stored on your device (which may mean a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone) during a single visit to the site (called a ‘browser session’). They do not do anything unless you are actively browsing, and they are deleted as soon as you close your browser.
For example: a session cookie allows you to move from page to page without having to repeatedly log into the site.
These remain on your device until they are set to expire or you choose to delete them from your browser cache. They are activated each time you visit the website that created them.
For example: a persistent cookie lets us remember you when you return, helps analyze your behavior while you are on the site, and lets us identify any problems.
Both session cookies and persistent cookies are first-party cookies which belong to Strategic Solutions Inc..
First-party cookies are cookies that belong to Strategic Solutions Inc. whereas third-party cookies are cookies that another party places on your browsing device through our websites. Third-party cookies will be providing a service to Strategic Solutions Inc. or a function to us but Strategic Solutions Inc. cannot control how those third-party cookies are used.
For example: third-party cookies are used for both advertising services and on-site functionality.
