What are cookies?
When you use our online services, including apps, cookies and other tracking technologies, they can be used in different ways: for example, to support the operation of PlayAttack website, to analyze traffic or provide you with offers. These technologies are either used directly by us or by our business partners, including third-party service providers we work with. If you want to learn more about cookies, their use and their configuration options, please read the information below.
A cookie-file is a small amount of data that is placed in the browser of your computer or on your mobile device. So-called “first party cookies” are cookies which are served by the entity operating the domain through which the cookie is served. PlayAttack.com own cookies are therefore “first party cookies”. In case we allow others to service cookies through our Website, these cookies are so-called “third party cookies”.
In addition, there is a difference between session cookies and permanent cookies. Session cookies will only exist until you close your browser. Permanent cookies have a longer lifespan and are not automatically deleted once you close your browser. We strive to serve cookies or allow the serving of cookies with a maximum lifespan of 5 years. Only in exceptional circumstances, such as for security purposes and where absolutely necessary, will a cookie have a longer lifespan than that.
