1. What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device. They are widely used in order to make websites and other online services work properly and/or more efficiently. They can do this because they allow our services to recognise you and remember important information (e.g. your user preferences).
2. What cookies do we use?
As set out below, we use two different categories of cookies: Essential Cookies and Performance Cookies.
Essential Cookies. As the name suggests, these cookies are essential to the operation of our services. Without these cookies, the services in question would not work properly (e.g. you wouldn’t be able to navigate around the site or access certain types of content). These cookies cannot therefore be turned off without severely affecting your use of the services.
Essential cookies include for example:
||The ‘auth’ cookie is used to allow you to sign in to the SpatialOS website. This cookie will remain on your computer for up to 10 hours or until you click ‘sign out’. Until that time, you’ll remain signed in to the SpatialOS website.
Performance cookies include for example:
||The ‘acct_pref’ cookie is used to remember which 3rd party account you used to identify yourself when you signed into the SpatialOS website to streamline future authentication challenges. This cookie will remain on your computer indefinitely until you click ‘sign out’.
||This cookie is used to track visitor sessions on our website via Crazy Egg. This cookie expires after 3 months.
||The ‘_ga’ cookie is used to track your interaction with the SpatialOS website via Google Analytics. This cookie expires after 2 years.
4. How do I control cookies?
You may refuse to accept cookies from our services at any time by disabling cookies in your browser or on your device.
Further information about the procedure to follow in order to disable cookies can be found on your browser provider’s website, or you may wish to refer to http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/index.html for information on commonly used browsers.
Please be aware that if cookies are disabled, not all features of the services may operate as intended.
