What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables IT-Libraries features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to IT-Libraries and our sites generally, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device. Cookies also enable you to easily share content on IT-Libraries and help us serve relevant ads to you.
When does IT-Libraries place cookies?
What types of cookies does IT-Libraries use?
We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to IT-Libraries or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by IT-Libraries when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our services (for example, our sharing or job application buttons). Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
