1. What are cookies?
A cookie is a small data file that is sent to a user’s browser from a web server and stored on the user’s computer’s hard drive, in order to allow a website to recognize the user when he returns to the website using the same computer and web browser, either for the duration of his visit (a “session cookie”) or for repeat visits (a “persistent cookie”). The session cookies are stored in the user’s device until log out, until the user leaves a webpage or until the software (web browser) is disabled while the persistent cookies remain on the user’s device until deleted or once they reach a defined expiration date. Other similar files (or tracking technologies and services) work in the same way and SmarterChains uses the word ‘Cookie’ in this Policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
2. Which are the categories of the cookies used in our website?
The cookies placed by our website are called 'first party cookies'. Cookies placed by others are called 'third party cookies'.

The parties who place third party cookies can recognize your device both when visiting our website and when visiting certain other digital platforms.
In addition, persistent cookies are cookies saved on your computer which are not deleted automatically when you close your browser, unlike a session cookie, which is deleted when you close your browser.
