This page explains how the Asc Cloud platform uses cookies and how to choose to manage or remove them if you wish to do so.

What are cookies and how do they work?

Cookies are small data files which are sent to a user’s computer or mobile phone from a website and are stored on the hard drive of the user’s device. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain that the cookie has come from, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a randomly generated unique number or other value. Cookies perform lots of different tasks, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving your experience of a website. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. A website that doesn’t use cookies will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site. When you enter your login details and then move to another page, it won’t be able to recognise you and will be unable to keep you logged in,forcing you to re-enter your login details each time.
