What are cookies?
Cookies are little text files which are stored on the browser or hard drive of your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or application. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
There are different types of cookies. Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, SCEE Foundation) are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies". Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website. The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
Cookies can be stored for varying lengths of time on your browser or device. Session cookies are deleted from your computer or device when you close your web-browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer or device until deleted or until they reach their expiry date. Some cookies are essential for you to be able to experience the full functionality of a website.
The cookies we use are session cookies, which are automatically deleted from your hard disk at the end of the browser session. Session cookies are needed to help the website function. Only pseudonymous data is stored in our cookies. On activation, the cookie is allocated an identification number; we do not allocate personal data to this identification number. Your name, your IP address and other such data that might allow the cookie to be traced to you directly are not stored in the cookie.
How do you change cookie preferences or block cookies?
Within your browser you can choose whether you wish to accept cookies or not. Different browsers make different controls available to you. Generally, your browser will offer you the choice to accept, refuse or delete cookies at all times, or those from providers that website owners use. Each browser’s website should contain instructions on how you can do this.
If you block cookies on our website, you may be unable to access certain areas of our website and certain functions and pages will not work in the usual way.
We may update this Policy from time to time. If we make significant changes we will let you know. Please regularly check this Policy to ensure you are aware of the most updated version.
