What type of cookies do eGRiST websites use?

eGRiST only uses session cookies. Session cookies can help with security and allow websites to remember users within the site as they move between web pages. They can remember what you have done on previous web pages so you do not have to re-enter information.

eGRiST does not use any persistent, analytics, tracking, performance, advertising or third-party cookies. We only use first-party session id cookies which are set by the website you are using and are not shared elsewhere.

How long are cookies saved for?

Session cookies delete themselves once you close your browser windows or are deleted when you log out.

How do I manage cookies or change my cookie settings?

Web browsers allow some control over cookies through the browser settings. You can use your browser settings to delete cookies that have already been set or to allow/block cookies. It is important to know that rejecting or blocking cookies will not delete any cookies that have already been saved to your device in the past. You can delete previously saved cookies via your browser settings.
