Types of Cookies
Although cookies are ultra-small, text-based files, we can differentiate between their types. Here are some of them that we incorporate into our services.
- Session Cookies: Some cookies are only needed for the duration of your thecasinoguide.ca session, so called “session cookies”. They will be erased or become invalid as soon as you leave the site or your current session expires. These cookies enable the site to keep track of your movement from page to page. This way, we will not ask you twice for the same information you’ve already given us. The lack of need to authenticate or reprocess each new area saves time and effort for our readers.
- Permanent cookies: Some cookies are stored for a longer period. For example, it allows to recognize you when you access thecasinoguide.ca again later and access saved settings. Permanent cookies are automatically deleted after a predefined period of time.
- Functional Cookies: these files are extremely important as they’re essential for enabling user movement around the site. They help in the proper functioning of the site and improve security. This type of cookies should never be disabled because it may result in particular features of the website not working properly.
- Analytical Cookies: they collect information on how our readers use the website. They allow us, the CasinoGuide team, to receive information about what you are interested in on the site and to make appropriate improvements to the content. For example, these cookies show us which pages are visited most often, help identify difficulties encountered while using the site and evaluate our marketing effectiveness.
