What are cookies?
Cookies are the confusingly adorably named tiny text files that can be placed on your computer or mobile device that uniquely (but anonymously) identify your browser or device. They are unable to search your computer in any way, cannot introduce viruses to your computer and contain no personal identifying information about you (basically they are nothing to be afraid of).
What are cookies used for?
Cookies are used by sites or services when they wants to know if your computer or device
visited that site or service before. These cookies on your computer or device can then
used to help remember your preferences (such as language), help you navigate between
efficiently, and generally improve your browsing experience.
Cookies can also be used for online advertising – by aggregating the very basic information cookies gather, informed guesses can be made about your demographic and ads targeted to you thusly. Or more simply – if you go to a site about watches, it may drop a cookie on your computer, so the next sites you go to will then contain ads about watches.
What types of cookies does ReportTaka use?
There are generally four categories of cookies: “Strictly Necessary,” “Performance,”
“Functionality,” and “Targeting.” ReportTaka routinely uses three of these
