We want to ensure that you enjoy visiting and using Voice. In order to enhance your experience, we place small amounts of data called ‘cookies’ onto your computer. This Cookie Notice is given by and on behalf of the relevant contracting Voice entity specified in the Terms of Service.
1. WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A cookie is a file that contains an identifier (a collection of letters and numbers) that is sent between a web server and a web browser and is stored within the browser. That identifier is then exchanged with the server each time the web browser requests a page or resource from the web server.
Cookies can be one of two types: either persistent, or session cookies. A persistent cookie is stored in the web browser and remains valid until its set expiration (expiry) date, unless deleted by the user prior to that. While, a session cookie, as the name implies, expires at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
Yes. Cookies can be useful because they allow us to recognize your device, tailor content to meet your interests, and learn how you use Voice.
