1.2 About cookies

Cookies are small text files that are stored by your web browser (eg Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Apple Safari and Mozilla Firefox). They are placed on your computer’s hard drive or mobile phone. The Omonia Church website uses cookies so that our site can recognise who you are and make your browsing experience more enjoyable.

1.2 Different types of cookies

There are two different types of cookies – ‘session’ cookies and ‘persistent’ cookies. The Omonia Church website, like many websites, may use both. Session cookies are temporary cookies that expire when you close your browser. Persistent cookies have a longer expiration date and stay on your computer hard-drive until you manually delete them – usually when you delete your search history.

1.2.1 Persistent cookies

One example of a persistent cookie is the ‘remember me on this computer’ function which means you can access the private area of a website again from your own PC or mobile, without logging-in again. Session cookies and persistent cookies which may be placed on our website by us are known for this reason are ‘first party cookies.’

1.2.2 Third party cookies

‘Third party cookies’ are used by analytics companies such as Google to gather information about you. This isn’t the kind of personal information we retain under our Privacy Policy. It’s more to do with the habits you display and the websites you browse.
