This Cookies Notice (together with our Website Privacy Statement), sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us through the use of our website.

What Are Cookies
Cookies are small files that store information on your hard drive or browser which means that the website can recognise that you have visited before. Cookies make it easier for you to maintain your preferences on the website, and, by seeing how you use the website, we can tailor the website around your preferences and measure its usability.
Cookies come in many forms, that include:
First and Third-Party Cookies: whether a cookie is first-party or third-party refers to the domain placing the cookie. First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user (i.e. the NearForm website). Third-Party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.
Persistent Cookies: these cookies remain on a user’s device for the period specified in the cookie. They activate each time that the user visits the website that created that cookie.
Session Cookies: these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are automatically deleted.
We may collect information about your computer, including, where available, your IP address, operating system and browser type. We use this information for system administration, to help us provide a better service, to record session information and/or to assist you in browsing the website. This may in some instances only be statistical data about how you browse our website.
For the same reasons, we may obtain information about your usage of the website by using a cookie file which is stored on the hard drive of your computer. Cookies contain information
that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. Cookies help us to improve the website and to deliver a better and more personalised service. They enable us to:
- estimate usage numbers and patterns;
- store information about your preferences, and so allow us to customise the website according to your individual interests;
- speed up your searches; and
- recognise you when you return to the website.
