Cookie Policy

At Domain Crawler we use cookies on our website(s). This cookie policy explains what and how cookies are used. For more information on how we process personal data and your rights as a data subject, please see our Privacy Policy.

What is a Cookie file?

A cookie is a small piece of data, which may include a unique identifier that is stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies can generally be categorised based on their lifespan and whether the cookie is set by the domain you are visiting or by another domain.

First party cookies are set directly by and can only be read by the website you are visiting. Third party cookies are set by a domain other than the one you are visiting, which typically occurs when the website uses external services. Persistent cookies are not automatically deleted at the end of your browser session. Cookies that are deleted once you quit your browser session are known as session cookies.

What types of cookies do we use?

There are a number of different types of cookies, however, our website uses. We categorise cookies in four categories:

  1. Visitor preference cookies (store visitor preferences)
  2. Operational cookies (make our website operational)
  3. Analytical cookies (gather analytics data about visitors)
  4. Advertising (you may be shown advertising based on your browsing patterns on our website)

Certain cookies may be accessed by third parties as disclosed below.
