§3. Cookies

  1. When visiting republicofsimracers.com we'll try to use cookies. Cookies are small text files set by the server and kept by your browser. When you revisit the site, cookies can be read by the server. Cookies generally help to handle continuous visits, sessions and some parts of authorisation. 

  2. Cookies and other captured data are used to provide you with the service. We have analytics package - Google Analytics - to anonymously capture visit trends and to give us insight into how our website is used.
    Cookies are used to identify user (session handling) and to tailor the contents to their needs.

  3. We are using two types of cookies:
    1. „required” cookies - these are allowing us to provide you with the service, such as Steam auth cookies to handle login ins and user access;
    2. „analytics” cookies, to help us gather anonymous information about how you're using our service:

      __utma is a persistent cookie,  which expires after two years. It stores each user's amount of visits, the time of the first visit, the previous visit and the current visit.  
      __utmb and __utmc cookies work in tandem to calculate the length of a user’s visit. __utmb cookie registers the entrance time of a visitor and __utmc registers the exit time of a visitor. __utmb is a session cookie, and expires when the user leaves the page. __utmc expires a short time after the user’s visit ends. 
      __utmz is a persistent cookie, which expires after six months. __utmz stores where a visitor came from (search engine, search keyword, link).

  4. You can manage your cookie settings via the browser settings - here's the link to guide you through the settings in different browsers: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies
