Last updated: 19 Oct 2023

We believe in being transparent about how we use your data. This Cookies Policy explains what cookies are, how we use them, and your rights to control our use of them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. They allow the website to recognize your device and remember if you've been to the website before.

A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer's hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any Personal Information. We use cookies for several purposes, such as:

Session Cookies: These are temporary cookies that are only valid during a user's online session and disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser.

Persistent Cookies: These cookies remain on your computer or device after the browser has been closed and last for a time specified in the cookie. They're activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie. For example in this type of cookie, we keep your favorite games (if you press the "Add to Favorite" game, you will find them on, what games you've liked or disliked (we keep this on track to eliminate the risk of some users to give multiple likes/dislikes to certain games).

Third-party Cookies: These are set by a domain other than the one you're visiting. This typically happens when a website includes elements from other sites, such as images, social media plugins, or advertising. The servers that serve these elements can set their own cookies, known as third-party cookies.
