Considering how widespread and essential cookies are in the digital era, we strongly recommend familiarising yourself with the present document. Though this policy outlines how BitiCodes employs cookies specifically, we believe learning more about them will be helpful to you in general, as cookies are ubiquitous online.
Cookies are very simple text files that websites such as BitiCodes use to identify individual customers. Our server generates them automatically when you first visit our website, creating a code that becomes your personal identifier.
The server then sends the cookie file to your device — your smartphone, tablet, or computer, depending on how you accessed our website. Upon subsequent returns, the cookies on your device help our website recognise you.
Cookies help websites understand how users interact with their web resources. For example, they help us learn if people enjoy spending time reading long text passages that contain a lot of information or if they prefer to skim through and pause to look at images instead.
This behaviour analysis is crucial for web developers because it allows us to see where we need to focus our efforts to communicate with you more efficiently.
Moreover, some cookies actually make certain website functionalities possible that would not be available to customers otherwise.
In other words, cookies help the BitiCodes website function properly and also give us valuable insights on what we need to improve to deliver a more enjoyable user experience in the future.
