Also called a permanent cookie, or a stored cookie, a cookie that is stored on a user's hard drive, until it expires (persistent cookies are set with expiration dates) or until the user deletes the cookie.
These cookies are meant to collect your browsing preferences (your searches, the websites you visit, things you like or don't like, personal conditions and things you might not want a third party to know about nor to be sold to someone else).
A vast majority of websites, search engines, apps and social networks, will place these cookies in your browsers because they are showing you ads and making money off them. This is not inherently bad, however the ad you see, comes also with these cookies, to help Advertising Networks to show you even more relevant ads, as well as collect a vast amount of data about Internet users, to then be sold or mishandled in ways that could harm society.
This website shows Ads from Google, therefore it places their cookies in your browser (sorry!).
If you don't wish to be tracked, please adjust your privacy settings here.
We also show Facebook Ads, therefore if you don't wish to be tracked by them, please head over here to change your settings.
Also turn this site's consent toggle OFF.
Please understand that not allowing Advertising cookies to be placed in your browser, doesn't mean you will not see ads, you still will, just not really relevant to your interests.
