Bible Cartoons Cookie Policy

How we use cookies on this website

Bible Cartoons is working to comply fully with changes in the law relating to the use of cookies on websites. This page explains what cookies are, why we use them on this website, and how you can opt out of having cookies stored on your computer.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is simply a small text file that is sent from a website to your computer (or mobile device) when you visit certain web pages. It allows the website to “remember” your actions or preferences over time. Most browsers support cookies, but users can set their browsers to decline them and can delete them whenever they like.

A cookie cannot be used to identify you personally.

How do cookies work?

The first time you visit a website, a cookie is usually downloaded to your computer. The next time you visit, your computer checks to see if it has a cookie for that site, and if it does, it sends the information back to the website.

The website then ‘knows’ that you have visited before, and in some cases can tailor its content to take account of that fact.

What are the different types of cookies?

A cookie can be classified by its lifespan and the domain to which it belongs. By lifespan, a cookie is either a:

session cookie, which is erased when the user closes the browser, or
persistent cookie, which remains on the user’s computer/device for a pre-defined period of time.

As for the domain to which it belongs, there are either:

first-party cookies, which are set by the web server of the visited page and share the same domain, or
third-party cookies, which are stored by a different domain to the visited page’s domain. This can happen when the webpage references a file, such as JavaScript, located outside its domain.
