What are Cookies?
A cookie is a small text file which is placed on your device. Cookies help to analyze web traffic and allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can then tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences. Certain cookies may contain personal data – for example, if you click to “remember me” when logging in, a cookie may store your username and password. Most cookies won’t collect personal data that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information, such as how Users arrive at and use the Aura Website or Aura Portal.
What kinds of Cookies do we use?
The Aura Website and Aura Portal utilize both Session and Persistent Cookies. Session cookies are used ‘in-session’ each time you visit the Aura Website and Aura Portal and then expire when you leave the Aura Website or Aura Portal or shortly thereafter: they are not stored on your device permanently, do not contain any personal data and help by minimizing the need to transfer personal data across the internet. These cookies can be deleted but this will hamper the performance and your experience in using the Aura Website and Aura Portal.
These cookies also take time stamps that record when you access the Aura Portal and when you leave the Aura Portal. Persistent Cookies are used on the Aura Website from Google and YouTube and on the Aura Portal for log-in purposes only. These cookies are encrypted and persist even after your browser is closed. On the Aura Website, the Persistent Cookies persist for up to two years. On the Aura Portal, the Persistent Cookie persists so that you do not need to log-in again when you next visit and expire after seven days from the last log-in.
