SmartSimple Platform Cookie Policy
About Cookies
A cookie is a file containing an identifier, composed of a string of letters and numbers, that is sent by a web server to your computer when you visit a website. Your computer will then send this identifier back to the web server as it communicates with it. The reason for doing this is to create an improved user experience for you.
Typically, cookies will be one of either of these types; persistent, or session. A persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date. A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but other personal information stored about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
