What are cookies?
For some reason, the British call them “biscuits.” But Internet cookies are slightly different. A cookie is a data fragment from a website you have visited that is stored on your computer.
Which cookies do we use and why?
We use several types of cookies:
- Cookies for user authentication in chats: we remember our users so they don’t have to log in each time, all over again.
- Statistics cookies: we use several systems to collect statistics, as it is important for us to know how people read us. Based on this data, we can understand the size of our audience, and what we are doing right or wrong. We collect statistics through our partners: Google Analytics, Yandex Metrika, and Mediascope (formerly known as TNS).
- Advertising: we use ad serving platforms (Google DFP and AdFox) to show you contextual ads relevant to your preferences.
You can disable them using your browser’s security settings. An important note: the settings should be applied to all browsers you use (both on your computer and smartphone). If you choose to disable cookies, please note that some Meduza services will no longer be available to you, or may operate unpredictably.
