ISPCC Cookies Policy

What are Cookies

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website, mobile app or use an online platform. Cookies are widely used by online service providers to facilitate and help to make the interaction between users and websites faster and easier, as well as to provide reporting information.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, ISPCC) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. videos, social media, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer or device both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Why Do We Use Cookies?

We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Website to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.
