What Cookies Are

Cookies are small pieces of text sent to your web browser by a website you visit. A cookie file is stored in your web browser and allows the Service or a third-party to recognize you and make your next visit easier and the Service more useful to you.

Cookies can be “persistent” or “session” cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your personal computer or mobile device when you go offline, while session cookies are deleted as soon as you close your web browser.

What Tracking Pixels Are

In addition to cookies, Rippel may use tracking pixels. A tracking pixel (also called 1×1 pixel, pixel tag or a web beacon) is a very small graphic that is loaded when a user visits a webpage, but is not usually visible to the user. Similar to cookies, tracking pixels are used to recognize you, count how many users visit certain webpages and therefore make the Service more useful to you.
