We think it’s important for you to understand how cookies and other similar technologies are used by EDGE Marketplace. These technologies help the EDGE Marketplace function, allow us to understand how you use the Services, and have a number of purposes that you can read about in this policy.
1. Types of Cookie Technologies
Cookies are small data files sent from a server to your web browser. Cookies are stored in your browser’s cache or the hard drive of your computer (if you agree) and allow a website or a third party to recognize your browser. There are two primary types of cookies deployed by the website:
- Session cookies are specific to a particular visit and carry information as you view different pages so you don’t have to re-enter information every time you change pages or attempt to checkout. Session cookies expire and delete themselves automatically in a short period of time like after you leave the Site or when you close your web browser.
- Third party cookies are created by domains that are not the website (or domain) that you are visiting. These are usually used for online-advertising purposes and placed on a website through adding scripts or tags. A third-party cookie is accessible on any website that loads the third-party server’s code.
Cookies store data about your use, but they are helpful because they allow us to help EDGE Marketplace function and customise your experience. You can configure your desktop or mobile browser’s settings to reflect your preference to accept or reject cookies, including how to handle third-party cookies.
EDGE Marketplace uses Cookie Technologies to recognize your logged-in state on EDGE Marketplace, to understand what purchases members and visitors are interested in and to help your browsing experience and use of the Site and Services feel more tailored to you.
