2. What are cookies?

Cookies.  Cookies are small bits of data that can be placed on your computer, tablet, smartphone or other electronic "device" with which you can use the internet via a web browser. When a website is visited, the website can place these cookies on your device via your web browser. Examples of web browsers are: Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome and Opera.

There are two different categories of cookies:

  • First party cookies. Cookies which YYGGames places on your device for its own purposes.
  • Third party cookies. Cookies placed by or for an external/third party (e.g. other company). Usually these are cookies for the purpose of advertisement and tracking (see below). Vice versa, YYGGames may also obtain cookie information obtained by third parties when you visit other websites.

Purpose of cookies. After a cookie is placed on your device, your device can be recognized as you browse through the YYGGames Websites via the same web browser. This will for instance enable the YYGGames Websites to 'remember' your language settings, which games you played and your progress in these games. If these cookies are placed by a third-party, such third-party can (also) use the cookie for the same purposes.

For more information on cookies, please refer to the website .

Lifecycle of cookies. After a cookie is placed on a device, it is only valid for a certain period.

  • Default period. After the validity period of a cookie passes, the cookie is automatically removed by the web browser.The validity period varies per cookie. For example, some cookies are only valid during the browser session. Other cookies can also recognize your device if you visit the YYGGames Websites during a new browser session, e.g. for half a month after being placed.
  • Early deletion/refusal of cookies. You can choose to delete a cookie manually before its validity period has passed. You can also decide to refuse the cookies which may only be used with your consent. For more information on this, please see the section below: "How can you manage cookies and cookie settings?".

Similar technologies. In addition to cookies, other techniques can also be used for similar purposes, such as:

  • HTML5 Local Storage. HTML5 Local Storage and local shared objects can be used for the same purposes as cookies.
  • Web beacons. Web beacons (also called "tags" or "tracking pixels") are bits of programming code that can be included in web pages, emails, and ads. Web beacons can notify the user when those web pages, emails, or ads have been viewed or clicked on by you.

Below, when we speak of "cookies", we also mean the similar technologies described above, unless we say otherwise.
