Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website and mobile application owners in order to make their websites and apps work or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies do a lot of different jobs which make your experience of the Internet much smoother and more interactive. For instance, they are used to remember your preferences on sites you visit often, to remember your user ID and the contents of your shopping baskets, and to help you navigate between pages more efficiently. They also help ensure that the advertisements that you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. Much, though not all, of the data that they collect is anonymous, though some of it is designed to detect browsing patterns and approximate geographical location to improve user experience.
Broadly speaking, there are four types of cookies: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functionality cookies, and targeting or advertising cookies.
Additionally, these cookies are divided further into two sub-types.
The ability to disable or delete cookies can also be carried out by changing your browser’s settings. In order to do this, follow the instructions provided by your browser (usually found in the ‘Help’, ‘Edit’ or ‘Tools’ facility). If you disable all cookies, some pages may not work. If you switch off cookies at a browser level, your device won’t be able to accept cookies from any website.
Below is a list of the types of cookies and similar technologies used by the PAYMENTZ across our websites, mobile sites, and mobile applications. Not all of these cookies will appear on every site or application, and this list is not exhaustive.
