What is a cookie and how does it work?

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer, tablet or mobile phone (referred to here as a "device") browser from a web site's server and is stored on your device's hard drive. The cookie will be sent back to the server at your next visit of the web site. The web site will then recognise your specific browser-device combination. Many web sites do this because cookies enable web site publishers to find out whether the device (and probably its user) has visited the web site before and to tailor the web site to the users’ preferences (such as language).

Types of cookies

Before we explain how we use cookies on our web site, we first explain what types of cookies are generally used on web sites. The law distinguishes functional cookies from other cookies. VEON Ltd. asks your permission for the use of other than functional cookies.

Functional cookies are cookies that are necessary for the optimal functionality of a web site. These cookies (i) have the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of communication over an electronic network or (ii) are strictly necessary for the provision of an information service requested by the user. Examples include cookies that remember the items in an online shopping basket, or cookies that can remember login details.

Other cookies can be separated in analytic cookies and tracking cookies.

Analytic cookies are cookies that collect anonymous statistical information on the use of the web site in order to improve a web site’s functionality. Examples include cookies that collect information on the number of visitors to a web site, or the amount of time that a visitor spends on a web site.

No tracking cookies are used.

How to manage and delete cookies

If you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by the VEON Ltd. web site, or indeed any other web site, you can do this through your browser settings. Each web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other web sites. Many web sites do this whenever a user visits their web site in order to track online traffic flows.
