What are cookies and how are they used?

A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your device’s web browser by a website and is stored on your device’s hard drive. Cookies may allow a website to “remember” your actions or preferences over a period of time, or they may contain data related to the function or delivery of the website. Each website can send its own cookies to your web browser.

Your browser will have the option for you to prevent websites using cookies (your browser’s help screen will tell you how to do this), but please note that this may reduce the functionality of our Website and other websites.

WGNSTAR uses cookies to keep our Website working as you expect it to, to analyze traffic on our Website, to prevent non-genuine users and/or malicious software from engaging in abusive activities on our Website, and to enable performance and product and service improvements.

Cookies may be temporary so that after your visit to our Website (known as a session) they will expire automatically, or they may have a longer duration. Session cookies allow you to use our Website more effectively without having to re-enter information during your visit. Cookies with a longer duration will remain in the cookie file of your browser until they expire or until you delete them.

Types of Cookies:

First-Party Cookies

First-party cookies are directly stored by the website (or domain) you visit. These cookies allow website owners to collect performance  data, remember language settings, and perform other useful functions that provide a good user experience.

Third-Party Cookies

Third-party cookies are created by domains that are not the website (or domain) that you are visiting, hence the name “third-party”. They are typically used for cross-site tracking, retargeting and personalized advertising.

Cookie Categories:

We use Google Analytics to track and understand aggregated usage metrics on our Website, such as number of visitors and unique visits to our Website, to prevent non-genuine users and/or malicious software from engaging in abusive activities on our platform, and to enable performance and product improvements.
