2. How do Cookies Work?

2.1   Cookies can be divided into two major categories, with many subsets:

  1. Session cookies stay on a browser and retain your information until it is closes. When a new browser window is opened, the same user is treated as a new visitor and must input their login credentials.
  2. Persistent cookies have a designated lifespan and remain in a browser until the period elapses or the cookie is manually deleted. Websites that use persistent cookies will remember users even after they close a browser. Persistent cookies enable features such as persistent shopping carts.

3. Why do we use Cookies?

3.1  Smart Play-choice UK Ltd uses cookies to improve services for the Players by collecting information about how Visitors use our site.
