When we refer to “cookies” we mean any tool used to store or access information on a User’s computer or other device. Cookies are widely used to allow online and mobile sites to function efficiently. A cookie is often a small text file that (depending on your browser settings) is deposited on your computer, mobile phone, tablet or other device when you visit a site. The cookie may be sent back to that site when you visit again, and may then be used by the server to identify and track your use of Swoop. Cookies last for various durations. A “session cookie” is a short lived cookie which, depending on your browser settings, is generally deleted when you close your browser. A “persistent” cookie is a long-term cookie that will be stored by your browser until its set expiry date (unless you delete it before the expiry date).
There are four widely recognised categories of cookie by function:

Please note that Google may also transfer Google-held information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.
