1. About Cookies

What are Cookies?

A cookie is a technology that allows us to remember information about you as a customer. Cookies are tiny text files that store information on your access computer. Without cookies, every website and app simply loses its memory each time you visit a new page or reopen an app. It has no idea who you are, what you've done, or what you like. This can be fairly complicated as the user experience you are used to getting from Cerebranium when using our website or app would cease to exist. Without this memory we, for example, can’t log you in as we forgot who you are. Or we can’t show you the rights language settings because we don’t know where you are coming from. So all these useful functionalities which makes the Cerebranium website enjoyable wouldn’t be possible. Cookies are also used to know which of our marketing partners send you to our website. If you click on a Cerebranium ad on another website, this website uses cookies to let us know that you’re coming from them.

Cookies by themselves aren't really good or bad, so it's important to know what you can do with them and make your own decisions regarding your data.

2. What types of cookies exist?

At the end of your browser session, some of the Cookies we use will be automatically removed from your hard drive (Session Cookies). We also use cookies, which stay on your hard drive after your browsing session has ended for a set period of time (Persistent Cookies). The country and language you chose on your previous visit to our Website will be recognized automatically on your next visit. These Persistent Cookies will be saved on your hard drive and then removed by your browser after the specified time period has passed. Cookies from third-party providers can also be included in this group (Third-Party Cookies).
