What is a cookie? A cookie is a text file stored by a web server on a device, and the content of a cookie can be retrieved and read only by the server that created the cookie. The text in a cookie often consists of identifiers, site names, and some numbers and characters, which will help us identify your device, secure your access to our Site and Services generally, and remember your custom preferences over time.
What types of cookies do we use? We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie allows us to recognise you as an existing user, thereby enabling you to return to Alphien’s Site or interact with our Services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by Alphien when you return to one of our Site that uses our Services. A session cookie only lasts as long as the current visit.
