When you visit Bioxodes’ website, a cookie (a small text file) is stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies help us to improve our website and we use them for different purposes.
A ‘cookie’ is a small data file, comprised of a text-only string of information, which a website transfers to the web browser on your computer's hard drive, either temporarily for the duration of your visit or sometimes for longer periods, depending on the type of cookie. Cookies perform a number of functions (including to distinguish you from other users of the same website or to remember certain things about you, such as your preferences) and are used by most websites to improve your user experience.
Each cookie is unique to your web browser and will contain some anonymous information. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the "lifetime" of the cookie and a value (usually in the form of a randomly generated unique number).
Types of cookies
The main types of cookies that this website may use are described below:
- Session cookies
These are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your web browser only for the duration of your visit and they are deleted when you close the browser.
- Persistent cookies
These remain in the cookie file of your web browser even after the browser is closed, sometimes for a year or longer (the exact length of time will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). Persistent cookies are used where the website operator may need to know who you are for more than one browsing session (e.g. to remember your username or website customisation preferences).
- First-party cookies
These are cookies planted on your browser and/or hard drive by the actual website you are visiting. This involves assigning a unique identity to you with a view of tracking your journey on the website. Website operators often use first-party cookies for session management and recognition purposes.
