Use of cookies on the website
A cookie is a small text file / data file - a code - that a web page stores on the user's computer, tablet or smartphone that is used to use the web page.
Virtually all websites today use cookies. Some cookies are necessary for the website to work.
A cookie is a passive file that cannot collect information from the user's computer, spread computer viruses or otherwise spread malicious programs. A cookie, on the other hand, is used to recognize the computer; this may, for example, be in connection with internet shopping, where a cookie is used to remember what has been added to the shopping cart. Other cookies are simply used to compile statistics on how the website is used.
A cookie can only be read by the person who placed it on the computer, and other websites will therefore not be able to obtain information from that cookie.
There are also other technologies that, like cookies, store data locally. Of these, The Guiding Light Art Company uses LocalStorage, which is part of the HTML5 standard. This allows data to be stored locally on your computer. Unlike cookies, LocalStorage can only be accessed by the domain that created it. LocalStorage is also only accessed when the website asks for it, as opposed to cookies that are sent when the user makes a request.
There are different categories of cookies:
Session cookies which is deleted automatically when the browser is closed.
Persistent cookies which is normally stored on the hard disk. They are set with an expiration date so that they exist for a shorter or longer period.
Own cookies, also called first-party cookies, are set aside by the page that the user visits.
Third Party Cookies marketed by a third party who has elements of the web page; for example, it could be web analytics programs.
The purpose of cookies on our website can be divided into 3 categories:
Required cookies: These cookies are necessary for the website to function at all. This is e.g. cookies that make it possible to identify a session so that the user can remain logged in while clicking around.
Statistics cookies: These help us understand how users interact with our web page. We use this knowledge to optimize our site so that the user experience is better.
Marketing cookies: These are used to track users across websites. This helps us to understand from which web pages our visitors come from so that we can better target our marketing.
