What are cookies and similar technologies?
Cookies are small text files that are stored in your web browser that allow us or a third party to recognize you. Cookies are used to store and receive identifiers and other information on computers, phones, and other devices.

However, it’s not only cookies that can be used in this way. Functions performed by a cookie can be achieved by other means, too. This Policy on cookies, therefore, also applies to any similar technology that stores or accesses information on your device. This could include, for example, HTML5 local storage, local shared objects, beacons, pixels, and plug-ins. The single term “cookies” refers to cookies and any similar technologies.
Cookies enable the Website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size, and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep reentering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

A persistent cookie will remain on your devices for a set period of time, and the duration will be specified in this Policy. These cookies survive after your browser is closed. For example, we would use a persistent cookie if you asked that we keep you signed in to the Flo service.
