What are cookies
A cookie is a small text file that a website places on a visitor's computer or mobile device. There are different types of cookies, all of which fall into two main categories: first-party cookies and persistent cookies.
First-party cookies are cookies created by the website you are visiting: only that website can read them. In addition, a website can theoretically use external services that also create their own cookies, called third-party cookies.
Persistent cookies are stored on your computer and are not automatically deleted when you close the browser, unlike session cookies, which are deleted when you close the browser. Persistent cookies are one of two categories in the technical cookie family, the other being session cookies.
Each time you visit this website, you will be prompted, after the cookie has expired, to accept or decline the different types of cookies. This allows the site to remember your preferences for a certain period of time. Cookies may also be used to collect anonymous statistical data about your experience of our sites.
How we manage cookies
This website uses mostly first-party cookies created and controlled by Archiva. To view some of our pages, however, you will need to accept cookies from external organisation.
The 3 types of first-party cookies we use serve to:
- save visitor preferences
- operate our websites
- collect statistical data (about user behaviour).
Delete cookies from your device
You can delete all the cookies on your device by deleting the browsing history in your browser, which will delete all the cookies from all the sites you visit. However, please note that you may also lose some information that you have saved (e.g. your login credentials or site preferences).
Managing cookies from specific sites
For a more detailed control of cookies based on the site they come from, please check the privacy and cookie settings in your preferred browser.
Most modern browsers allow you to prevent the creation of cookies on your device, through the "Do not track" option, but then you will need to manually adjust some preferences each time you visit a site or page. In addition, some services and functionalities may not function properly (e.g. connecting to a profile). The 'Do not track' option does not work with Internet Explorer.
