Virtually all websites place cookies in your browser when you visit them. These cookies are used for two purposes: tracking website views and clicks (analytics cookies), and tracking views and clicks on advertisements (advertising cookies). If you’ve ever returned to a website and it “remembered” you, it’s because there was a cookie in your browser telling the site that you’d returned. Cookies can be either “session” cookies, which expire when you leave a site, or “persistent” cookies, which last after you leave a site, typically for about 30 days. For analytics and advertising purposes, most cookies are persistent. As a rule, cookies are “anonymous” regarding your personal information. They only identify browsers uniquely, not the people using the browser. 29Secrets uses analytics cookies from programs such as Google Analytics.
Refusing or Removing Cookies
All cookies can be refused by adjusting the appropriate settings in your browser; however, not accepting any cookies at all can make web browsing a frustrating experience. You can also delete cookies periodically or at the end of each browsing session by adjusting the appropriate settings in your browser, however some sites may not “recognize” you when you return. Users can learn more about Google and cookies, as well as opting out of Google’s behavioural program by going to: http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html.
