II. The use of the Cookies
1. What are Cookies?
Before diving deep into all the cookies, let’s explore the general meaning. The text files called cookies are used to identify your computer (or tablet, phone, or any other device you might use) as you use a computer network. Cookies typically contain small amounts of data made up of letters and numbers. Their primary purpose is to enable the operation of various websites, enhance their functionality, or collect analytical data.
The server creates data in a cookie as soon as you connect. An ID specific to you and your computer is used to identify this data. Your computer and the network server exchange cookies, and when they do, the server reads the ID and knows what data to give you exactly.
Cookies don't normally contain any information that may be used to identify a user individually, but we may link personal data we have on you to data that is both stored in and collected from cookies.
2. Type of Cookies
There are several types of cookies. Their classification is made according to their lifespan, role, and source, as follows:
a) Types of cookies depending on the lifespan
Cookies can be "Persistent" or "Session" Cookies.
Session cookies: A session cookie’s lifespan is limited to the end-user navigating a website. These cookies expire when the user deletes the cookies by terminating the session, e.g., by closing the browser. Therefore, session cookies do not have an expiration date.
Persistent cookies: Persistent cookies have a clearly defined expiration time. These cookies remain on the computer until this expiration time runs out or if the user clears their cache.
They are kept on a device's or computer's hard disk (depending on the default lifetime of the cookie). Persistent cookies also include "third-party cookies" (cookies placed by third parties), which can be used anonymously to remember a user's preferences so that advertising is presented to users in the most relevant way possible. These cookies are placed by websites other than the one the user is currently visiting.
b) Types of cookies depending on their role
Cookies can also be separated by role. Some of them are vital for a website to function properly, while others ensure additional website features are accessible.
Strictly necessary cookies: these types of cookies are essential for websites to provide basic functions. They allow you to navigate through the website and benefit from its features.
These cookies are exempt from collecting user consent and can be set regardless.
They must not be confused with functionality cookies that are used to enhance the performance of websites. Functional cookies are not vital for a website to run, but they allow the website to remember important information and user preferences. Information can include login data, location, language, and enhanced content.
Functional cookies: these types of cookies record information about the choices that users make and allow site operators to customize the site according to the user’s requirements.
Performance and analysis cookies: these cookies offer to allow the operators of internet sites to monitor the visits and traffic sources and the way in which the users interact with the website or certain sections of the website. Performance cookies can count page visits, examine how much time a user has spent on a website, and analyze loading speeds to improve performance.
Targeting and advertising cookies: these cookies may provide the ability to monitor the users' online activities and establish user profiles, which can then be used for marketing purposes. For example, based on cookies, the products and services agreed upon by a user can be identified, and this information subsequently serves to send appropriate advertising messages to that user.
Targeting cookies are almost always third-party cookies. Such cookies follow users from one website to another. In that way, websites can target users by displaying advertising banners on other addresses online even after the user has left their website and jumped to another.
In general, data about internet browsing activity is collected and analyzed anonymously. If a specific interest emerges from this analysis, a cookie is placed on the user's computer and this cookie determines what advertisement the user will receive, which is called interest-based advertising.
c) Types of cookies depending on their source
Each cookie has a "responsible" (i.e., website/Internet domain) that places that cookie. Considering this, cookies can be separated by party – they can either be first or third-party, depending on how they have been created and from which server cookies are being dropped on the user’s browser.
First-party cookies are stored directly on the domain (or website) the user visits. For example, if the user visits the https://www.marketcapof.com Website and the domain of the cookie placed on his computer is https://www.marketcapof.com then it is a first-party cookie.
Third-party cookies are stored under a different domain than you are currently visiting. For example, if the user visits the https://www.marketcapof.com Website but the cookie placed on his computer has as domain www.company.com, then it is a third-party cookie.
d) Embedded content (buttons, applications, and social widgets)
Web pages allow the integration of social buttons or widgets from a third-party, which allow users to interact with the sites whose social buttons or widgets are implemented. The user's interaction with the social buttons or widgets from a third-party allows the third-party to collect some information about that user, including the IP address, information in the page header, and information about the browser.

IV. Categories of cookies used
a. First-party versus third-party cookies
In order to differentiate a "first-party" cookie from a "third-party" cookie, you must consider the domain that places the cookie.
First-party cookies are the cookies implemented by the same website you are visiting at that moment, e.g., cookies set up by https://www.marketcapof.com.
Third-party cookies are the cookies set up not by the website that is visited by the user (in this case https://www.marketcapof.com) but by another domain. If a visitor enters a website that has a cookie configured on that website by another entity, then it is a third-party cookie.
b. Session and persistent cookies
Session cookies are used by website operators during browser sessions to link your online activities. A browser session is the sum of actions you perform from the moment you open your Internet browser window to the moment you close it. Session cookies are generated on a temporary basis and are all deleted once the browser is closed.
Persistent cookies are cookies that remain for a certain (specified) period of time on your device. Both session and persistent cookies are used on our website as we presented in the previous sections.
c. Other technologies
On our website, we also use the ReCAPTCHA software. With this version of ReCAPTCHA, Google pays attention to how the user's mouse moves on the webpage to determine whether the user is a person or a robot. With each interaction on a site that has the ReCAPTCHA service implemented, the software will learn more about human behavior, and analysis that leads to the most accurate results. When you are reported as having a suspicious hit, you will be prompted to solve a CAPTCHA test.
The ReCAPTCHA processes the following personal data: the IP address of the device, the site visited, the date and duration of the visit, browser, operating system information, language settings, Java script objects, the Google account if the user has such an account and is logged in at the same time as they visit the website, mouse movement over the ReCAPTCHA field.
