Cookie Policy

This cookie policy, a continuation of our privacy policy, explains what cookies are and how we at Web Mastered Ltd., use them on our websites to improve your experience and safety.

If you don’t wish to accept cookies from us, you should instruct your browser to refuse cookies from, with the understanding that we may be unable to provide you with some of your desired content and services.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that a website may store on your browser when you visit. Cookies typically contain information about the website itself, a unique identifier which allows the website to recognise your web browser when you return, and additional data that serves the purpose of the cookie, as well as the lifespan of the cookie itself.

A website can use cookies to fulfil functionalities such as logging you in and remembering you when you return, and storing website preferences such as your timezone, notification preferences and language. A website can also use cookies to carry out analytical functionalities, such as tracking your site usage and personalising your content with advertisements.

Cookies set by the website you are visiting are normally referred to as “first-party cookies”, and typically only track your activity on that particular site. Cookies set by other sites and companies (ie. third parties) are called “third-party cookies”, and can be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service.

How we use cookies

While we don't use cookies to carry out analytical functionalities, we do use cookies to improve your experience on our website in two main ways; security and persistence.

We use cookies to prevent cross-site request forgery attacks (CSRF). In a CSRF attack, an attacker may trick visitors into executing actions harmful to the website, as well as to the visitor. To prevent this, our websites generate a unique alphanumeric code (CSRF token), which is stored on your browser as a cookie when you visit. Our websites will only accept requests from your browser if the CSRF token from your cookie is verified. We may also use third-party cookies from Cloudflare to help us prevent any malicious web traffic on our website.

We also use cookies to remember you after you sign in. After you sign in, you will receive a cookie with a session ID and a unique alphanumeric code generated by the server, which links the session ID to your login account. So that the next time you visit, the website can check if you have a valid session ID and code so it can automatically log you in, keeping you signed in until the cookie expires or is cleared/deleted.

How you can control or opt out of cookies

On our websites, we use cookies for functional and security purposes which are strictly necessary for our websites to carry out their intended functions effectively and safely. We don't use cookies to track your website usage or for any other analytical purposes.

If you do not wish to accept cookies from us, you can instruct your browser to refuse cookies from our website. Most browsers are configured to accept cookies by default, but you can update these settings to either refuse cookies altogether or to notify you when a website is trying to set or update a cookie.

Do note that the cookies that we use are necessary for our websites to function as intended. With some of the cookies' presence critical for the website's functionality, upon blocking them, you may notice some parts of the website appear broken.
