2 What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Lucien Cartier-Tilet) are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies". Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
I use first party cookies for one reasons: my first party cookies are required for technical reasons in order for my Websites to operate, and we refer to these as "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies. For instance, it remembers which color theme you selected on my Websites that propose such as feature, or logins on labs.phundrak.com.
If you are worried about your privacy, rest assured that I do not have access myself to the cookies set by my Websites and thus they do not provide me any information about you.
4 How can I control cookies?
By default, all my websites set the cookies they need to work properly. Essential website cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Websites and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas. If you wish to delete these cookies, you can do so from your browser’s settings. Since there are many different types of browsers that exist, there is not a single way to delete cookies, but you can look up how to do so with a quick search on your favorite search engine, such as DuckDuckGo, Qwant or Startpage (if cookies worry you, you should probably avoid Google).
5 What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website, such as web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable some websites owners to recognize when someone has visited their websites or opened an e-mail including them.
However, I do not use them in any of my Websites. First, because I have no use in tracking you (as said below, I have very little love for advertising and tracking), and even if I wanted to, I do not know how to use this technology.
6 Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects?
Using Flash in
$current_year is a very bad idea due to its security flaws.
Therefore, Flash is not used on any of my Websites. And I do not use any Local
7 Do you serve targeted advertising?
Absolutely not, rest assured. I dislike advertisment as much as you do if not more.
