Types of Cookies and Purposes
Generally speaking, there are two types of cookies: First-party cookies, which are sent directly by us to your computer/device, and used only by us to recognize your computer/device; and Third-party cookies, which are sent to your computer/device by a third-party service provider, carefully chosen by us.
