3. What are cookies?


3.1 A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is sent to and stored on the Internet browser that You use on Your device whenever You access a website. Cookies are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owner of the website. Each website that You visit can store its own cookies to Your Internet browser if Your Internet browser allows it. There are different types of cookies:

  • Persistent cookies. These cookies are used to store a file for an extended period on Your device. They last after You have closed Your Internet browser, and allow a website to remember Your actions and preferences. They might remember choices You have made on previous visits to make the current visit more convenient and relevant to You. They are used, for example, to tell You about what is new on the website since Your last visit.
  • We use persistent cookies, for example, to remember Your user name and to analyse customer visits to Our Website. These cookies help Us to understand how Our customers arrive at and use Our Website so that We can improve iPayz Services.

  • Session cookies. These cookies are stored temporarily on Your device while You are visiting a website. They last only for the duration of Your visit and expire when You close Your Internet browser. Session cookies are used to support security and basic functionality of a website, for example, to remember what language You selected or Your login details so that You need not re-enter them multiple times when visiting the website.
  • We use session cookies, for example, to help Us to ensure security of Your use of iPayz Service session and keep You signed in to Your iPayz Account profile while You move between pages of the Website or services of Your iPayz Account.

3.2 There is a difference between a ‘first party’ and ‘third party’ cookie:

  • A ‘first party’ cookie. A cookie set by the website/mobile application owner (in this case IPS).
  • A ‘third party’ cookie. A cookie set by parties other than the website/mobile application owner. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided through the website/mobile application (for example, like advertising, interactive content and analytics). Where a cookie is a third party cookie, You should visit the relevant party’s website for more information.

IPS uses both first party and third party cookies.
