What are cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or mobile application. Cookies are then sent back to the originating site on each subsequent visit, or to another site that recognizes that cookies.

Cookies are widely used in order to make sites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the Website or Platform.
What types of cookies do we use?
There are two broad categories of cookies:
First party cookies, served directly by Abadcompany to your computer or mobile device. They are used only by Abadcompany to recognize your computer or mobile device when it revisits our site.
Third party cookies, which are served by a service provider on our site, and can be used by the service provider to recognize your computer or mobile device when it visits other sites. Third party cookies are most commonly used for Platform analytics or advertising purposes.
Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. Some cookies are ‘session cookies’, meaning that they exist only while your browser is open. These are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are ‘permanent cookies,’ meaning that they survive after your browser is closed. They can be used by the site to recognize our computer or mobile device when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.
We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites and/or App and/or Platform to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Websites and/or App and/or Platform.
