WiRE Cookies Policy
To make your experience visiting the WiRE website (the “Website”) as simple and convenient as possible and to help us continuously improve such experience we place small data files known as “cookies” on your computer. This is a practice used by many websites.
It supersedes any earlier version. We may update it from time to time, in which case we will notify you of any significant changes.
What are cookies?
Cookies are created when your browser loads the Website. The Website then sends information to the browser which then creates a text file. Cookies are stored on your device in the browser’s directory. They are stored for various periods of time, from as short as the duration of your browsing session to several months.
Every time you come back to the Website, the browser retrieves and sends cookies to the server, which helps improve your experience of the Website by:
- Remembering settings, so you don’t have to re-enter them every time you visit;
- Measuring use of the Website so that WiRE can see what could be improved.
Please note that computer cookies are created not just by the Website you are browsing, but also by other websites that run ads, widgets, or other elements on the page being loaded. These cookies regulate how the ads appear or how the widgets and other elements function on the page.
You can manage and/or delete these small files from your device, but please be aware that this will affect the functionality that WiRE is able to offer you.
You can manage website cookies in your browser settings by accepting, rejecting, or deleting cookies. Browser settings are different depending on the browser you use.
