1. What are cookies & other storage technologies?
Cookies enable you to use and personalise your experience on our Services, tell us which parts of our Services people have visited, and give us insights into user behavior so we can improve these Services. The cookies that we use include session cookies, which are deleted when you close your browser, and persistent cookies, which stay in your browser until they expire or you delete them.
While the cookies that we use may change from time to time as we improve and update our Services, we use them for the following purposes:
For example: We use session cookies to set your Hedera Hashgraph account and allow you to access the functionality of the Portal. Cookies also help keep your account information available as you navigate between pages in the Portal and ensure that you have all the necessary prerequisites in your account to use the Portal. This cookie’s lifespan ends when you close your browser or browser tab that serves the Portal.
Site features and services
For example: We use a persistent cookie when you first set the Portal to dark mode. When you access the Portal again, you will see the Portal in your preferred theme.
For example: We use session cookies to help us understand how quickly our Services load for different people and when our Services has malfunctioned during your session. These cookies also help us record the ratio and dimensions of your screen and windows so that we can render our Services correctly.
3. How can you control your Information?
Your browser or device may offer settings that allow you to choose whether browser cookies are set and how to delete them. These controls vary by browser and manufacturers may change both the settings they make available and how they work at any time. You may find additional information about the controls offered by popular browsers at the links below. Certain parts of our Services may not work properly if you have disabled browser cookie use. Please be aware that these browser controls are distinct from the controls that we offer you. Also, please note that the browsers linked below do not ensure compatibility with our Services.
