Protecting your personal information is really important to us and falls squarely into our strategy of helping you, the user.
Cookies Policy Q&A
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small computer file, which may be downloaded to your computer’s hard drive when you visit a website or app. Cookies are harmless files which can help improve your experience of using a website or app if your browser’s preferences allow it. The website or app can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering your online preferences.
Cookies work by dropping a small text file onto your local hard drive, which allow the website or app to read information that is stored within that file.
Most cookies are deleted as soon as you close your browser – these are called session cookies. Others, known as persistent cookies, are stored on your computer until you delete them, or they automatically expire. The list of cookies we use includes information on how long each one lasts, and we explain below how you can control or delete them yourself. If you return to Sikhwisdom.org after a previous visit, we will only drop session cookies, or any persistent cookies which have been removed or expired.
In general, the cookies used by Sikhwisdom.org are necessary to enable you to use our Site. Without these cookies, our Site won’t work properly, and you may not be able to use our tools.
These cookies allow us to remember the choices you make (such as your username) and provide enhanced, more personal features.
Any cookies which are not used to make your experience of getting to and using the Site better only provide us with statistics about the way users in general navigate the Site. We do not use any information derived from cookies to identify any individual users.
