What are Cookies?
Cookies are files or pieces of information that may be stored on your computer (or other internet-enabled devices, such as a smartphone or tablet) when you visit a Dosas website. A cookie will usually contain the name of the website from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e., how long it will remain on your device), and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number.
What types of cookies do we use?
Dosas uses two types of cookies on this website: “session cookies” and “permanent cookies”. Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain on your device until you close your browser. A permanent cookie remains on your device for much longer or until you manually delete it (how long the cookie remains on your device will depend on the duration or “lifetime” of the specific cookie and your browser settings). For example, website usage information about visitors to Dosas websites may be shared with our third party advertising agency to better target Internet banner advertisements on our websites.
