What are cookies, web beacons and similar technologies?
Like almost all websites, we use small data files, which are saved on your computer, tablet, mobile phone or other mobile device (referred to collectively as “device”) to record certain data each time you log in or interact with our sites, services, apps, messaging systems and tools.
The specific names and types of cookies, web beacons and other similar technologies used may change over time. To help you better understand the rules and use of these technologies, here are some terms with their definitions:

- permanent (or saved): they are used to store information, for example the login name and password, in order to avoid the user having to enter them again every time he visits a specific site; they remain stored on your computer even after you close Internet Explorer;
