CATEGORIES OF COOKIES

There are two types:

  • Technical cookies: these are necessary for browsing and allow reliable access to all areas of the website. They are not used for other purposes and are normally installed by the owner of the website.
  • Technical cookies are also similar to cookies from monitoring tools, like Google Analytics, which collect aggregate information on the number of users and how they visit the site;
  • Non-Technical cookies: Non-technical cookies are used to track the user’s browsing and create profiles on their tastes, habits, choices, etc.. These cookies can be used to transmit advertising messages to the user’s computer in line with preferences expressed by the user when browsing online.

 

There is also a distinction between first-party and third-party cookies: first-party cookies are those owned and for the exclusive use of the owner of the website (for activities that fall under both categories, technical and non-technical cookies), while third-party cookies are the ones used by third parties to collect information about users anonymously. They can use this information to profile users based on their activity on the Peter’s Pence website and on other sites you have visited.

The Peter’s Pence website uses only technical, first-party and third-party cookies as specified below.
