What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files stored by your browser as you browse the internet. They can be used to collect, store, and share data about your activities across websites, including on [wrdx_site_name]. Cookies also allow us to remember things about your visits to [wrdx_site_name], like your preferred language, and to make the site easier to use.
We use both session cookies, which expire after a short time or when you close your browser, and persistent cookies, which remain stored in your browser for a set period of time. We use session cookies to identify you during a single browsing session, like when you log into [wrdx_site_name]. We use persistent cookies where we need to identify you over a longer period, like when you request that we keep you signed in.
