  9. What Are Cookies?

Cookies are text files, often encrypted, that are transferred and stored on your computer or smartphone when you visit a website or use an application. They allow the website or application to function more efficiently from both a technical and business point of view.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Bydand) 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. For example, in order to better understand how our Website is used, and to know the approximate location of our Users, we work with a number of analytics partners, including Google Analytics. If you wish to prevent Google Analytics from using your information for analytical purposes, click here to install the browser add-on for opting out of Google Analytics.

We use two types of cookies, for various purposes:

  • Session cookies, which normally expire when you close your browser; and

  • Persistent cookies, which remain on your device after you close your browser or application, and can be reused the next time you visit our Website.

We may also use other technologies with functionality similar to cookies, such as web beacons, pixels, mobile phone identifiers and tracking. These technologies allow us to recognize you each time you visit our site.  

As advertising technology is integrated into our Website, if you opt out of personalized ads, you will continue to receive advertising content. Those ads will simply no longer be personalized to your specific interests. Furthermore, we do not control any of the deactivation features described above and are not responsible for the availability or proper functioning of these solutions.

To find out more about these cookies, as well as how you can disable them, we invite you to consult the opt-out page of the Network Advertising Initiative , the Digital Advertising Alliance or the page http://youronlinechoices.eu. To opt out of advertising from Google Analytics or personalize ads from the Google network, you can visit the Google Ads Personalization page.

You can choose to disable cookies through your individual browser options. To know more detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers, it can be found at the browsers' respective websites.


We may also use social plugins provided and operated by third parties, including the Facebook “Like” button. By using this type of functionality offered by a third party, you may be sending them information about your interactions with our Website. This third party may thus be able to link this information to the account you have with them. We invite you to refer to the privacy policies of the third party to learn more about their data practices, including how they may use this information.  Again, we do not control any aspect of these social plugins other than the fact that they are on our website.

For more general information on cookies, please read "What Are Cookies".


  10. Third Party Privacy and Cookie Policies

Bydand Security’s Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy do not apply to other advertisers or websites. Thus, we are advising you to consult the respective Policies of these third-party ad servers for more detailed information. It may include their practices and instructions about how to opt-out of certain options.


  11. How often will you update this Cookie Policy?

We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Please therefore re-visit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies. If this Policy changes, we will post the new version on our Website and update the “Last Updated” date at the top of this page.
