NerdCrafted.com Cookie Policy

Our website, and related services and providers, may sometimes place small files on your device called “cookies.” Cookies provide a variety of useful functions. For instance, they help make our website work properly, help us facilitate a great user experience and permit us to offer relevant products and advertising users may be interested in.  We’ve created this Cookie Policy to help you understand what cookies are, what cookies we use, why we use them and more. This Cookie Policy is part of our Privacy Policy.

 

What are Cookies?

When referring to an internet cookie, a “cookie” is essentially nothing more than a very small text file. These documents typically include information such as a unique anonymous identifier or number assigned to each visitor. When you visit a website, the site’s server computer requests permission from the visitor’s device in order to store cookie files. Cookies are stored in a specific location on a device that is specially exclusively reserved for storage of cookies.

However, cookie storage is generally only permitted if your browser and/or device settings or set to allow it. Due to obvious privacy concerns, a device and internet browser typically only allows a website to access or view its own cookies.  Web servers and websites generally cannot access or view cookie sent from other websites.
