Cookies and how we make use of them

Cookies are small files that your web browser stores on your device (for example, your computer’s hard drive). These files contain site/domain-specific information that is passed to and from the website when you interact with it.

Cookies are primarily used to keep track of information that results from your interactions with the site. Without cookies, web servers will view each page request that you make as unique and unrelated.

In the vast majority of cases, you are able to block cookies by adjusting the settings in your web browser. However, by doing so, you will prevent us from logging you into the system, offering you social sign-in and registration options, creating a sense of continuity as you interact with the site, and providing certain security features that are intended to protect your account information.

Consequently, we require you to accept cookies from Protawn as a fundamental condition of using our platform.

Please note that web browsers commonly allow you to delete cookies, which are stored on your computer, by using their options, settings, or history menus. At the end of your session with protawn, you may delete these files.
