This Cookie Policy only applies to the website of Brace Hosting and does not apply to linked websites that are not owned and controlled by Brace Hosting.

For more information about our privacy practices and to learn about your privacy rights, please see our privacy policy, which forms part of this Cookie Policy. This Cookie Policy sits in line with the UK`s Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA), the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR).

Functionality and types of cookies

A cookie is a small data record that is stored on your terminal device and contains data such as personal page settings or login information. This data record is either sent to your web browser by the server with which you have established a connection or generated by a script. When you later revisit the same domain, the information stored in the cookie is transmitted to and read by the server.

The most common types of cookies are explained below for your understanding:

Session cookies: while you are active on a website, a session cookie is temporarily stored in the memory of your device, in which a session identifier is stored, for example, to prevent you from having to log in again each time you change pages. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or lose their validity as soon as their session has automatically expired.

Persistent cookies: Persistent cookies store a file on your terminal device for the period of time specified in the expiration date (storage period). Through these cookies, the website remembers your information and settings the next time you visit. This results in faster and more convenient access, as you do not have to set your language preferences for our website again, for example. When the storage period expires, the cookie on your device is automatically deleted.

Third-party cookies: In contrast to first-party cookies, third-party cookies are session or persistent cookies that originate from a provider other than the website operator. They can be used, for example, to collect information for advertising, custom content and web statistics.

Depending on their respective purpose, the cookies used on our website can be divided into two categories: Technically necessary and technically non-necessary cookies.

The classification as technically necessary or technically non-necessary also determines the legal basis on which we use the respective cookie:

Technically necessary cookies

Technically necessary cookies are required for our website to function properly; they enable you to navigate our website efficiently and use its functional features. An example of this is, for example, the reminder of recently performed actions (e.g., entered text) when you return to a page within the same session.

Technically non-essential cookies are not necessary for the proper functioning of our website, but they enable us to improve the content of our website, compile statistics for internal market analysis purposes, provide you with a more personalized online experience or provide additional features.

Technically non-essential cookies can in turn be divided into the following subcategories:

Functional cookies: these cookies allow our website to remember the choices you make (for example, your username, language, or the region you live in) to provide you with a more personalized online experience. They also allow you to watch videos and interact with social tools such as blogs, chat rooms and forums.
