At Affpinions we try to heavily restrict the number of cookies we use. There are 2 main reasons for this. First, it makes it better for the users privacy. Second, it’s easier for us a business from a legal perspective.
For the above reasons the net result is that we don’t use very many cookies. Unlike lots of other websites, we don’t use Google Analytics. This helps our website load faster and reduces the number of cookies.
A ‘Strictly Necessary Cookie’ needs to be enabled at all times because it is required for the website to function correctly. Therefore you are unable to toggle them on or off while using this website.
The strictly necessary cookies we use are:
- Cookie Settings – that’s right, even the functioning of cookie panel that shows when you use this website has to use a cookie to know if you clicked it or not!
- Adsense – we have no manual control over this, it’s a third-party cookie managed by Google, you can use Google’s Ad Settings page to affect customization.
- PHPSESSID – a temporary technical cookie used to store a session.
Under EU law it isn’t required that any website obtain consent for cookies deemed “strictly necessary”, but what they do and why we use them should be explained to the user. We hope this page does that for you.
