We’re dedicated to securing your information to keep you safe. We have added suitable electronic, physical and managerial safeguards to protect the information that we collect from the Web.
1. What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website to your internet web browser and is stored on your computer. Cookies are accessed and recorded by the websites you visit, and by the companies that show advertisements on these websites so that they can recognize the same browser.
There are three types of Cookies:
Session: The cookie has short expiry time and it will expire when you close your browser. For eg. When you browse through the shopping site, they will keep your selected product in your cart, making your browsing easy.
Permanent: A persistent cookie may carry its expiry-date with it and will remain until it expires or if you delete it deliberately. Cookies can have expiry date ranging from a few minutes to multiple years.
Third Party: Cookies placed by the website you’re visiting are sometimes called “first-party cookies,” while cookies placed by other companies are sometimes called “third-party cookies.”
A cookie is a small file that needs permission to be added to your computer’s hard drive. After you agree, the cookie is added and it assists with Web traffic as well as letting you know when you visit a particular site.
Cookies allow Web applications to personalize your experience by tailoring themselves to the things you like and the things you don’t. Cookies gather and maintain information about you and the pages you visit, so we can keep track of our Web traffic. This allows us to make the necessary adjustments to keep the site relevant. Cookies never give us access to your personal information or access to your computer.
Most Web browsers automatically allow cookies to access your hard drive, but you can turn cookies off in your settings. However, taking this step will adversely affect your Web surfing experience. Cookies are also used to show you our ads when you visit various websites. You can opt out of Google’s cookies via this link.

When you use the ans-wer Service, ans-wer may place a number of cookies in your browser. You can find out more about each cookie by viewing our current cookie list. We update this list quarterly, so there may be additional cookies that aren’t yet listed.
Each cookie serves one of three different purposes:
Analytics and performance cookies:
- We have used Google analytics to track the visitor interaction with our web. You may read the details on Google Analytics’ Cookie Usage.
Ad targeting Cookies:
- These are third party cookies placed by advertising platforms or networks in order to deliver ad content and/or to track ad performance.
- These enable advertising networks to deliver relevant ads to you (also known as “behavioral” or “targeted” advertising)
Here’s a list of advertisement networks that we use on our website with links to their respective Cookie Usage details.
Analytics or advertisement companies generally use third-party cookies to collect user information on an anonymous basis. They may use that information to build a profile of your activities on the ans-wer Service and other websites that you’ve visited.
