Cookies are a small amount of data. A cookie is sent to your computer when you visit a website. It is kept on your computer in a file that is housed in your web browser.
Cookies do not infect your computer with malware or viruses. Cookies work more like logs (i.e., they record user activity and recall stateful information) and they get updated every time you visit a website, but they cannot alter how your computer operates because the data in a cookie does not change when it travels back and forth.
We might access cookies that our website has sent to you in order to learn more about you. Different cookie varieties record various activities. Session cookies, for instance, are only used when a user is actively surfing a website. The session cookie vanishes when you exit the website. Please read the appropriate section below for a more comprehensive list of the cookies we use.
A "session cookie" is set when you log in to the Members Area to deposit funds, allowing the website to remember that you have already logged in. This is another way that cookies are used to store your log-in sessions. As you move through the fundraising process, if the website did not establish this cookie, you will be prompted for your username and password on each new page.
Functional cookies, for instance, help us remember your preferences and recognize you as a user, keep your information secure, and run more consistently and effectively. For instance, cookies remember your choices, such as the language you want to see when you log in, saving you the hassle of having to type your username every time you use our trading platform.
