I. About Cookies
What are Cookies? A cookie is a technology for remembering something about you as our user. Cookies are small text files with information which are stored on your access device.
Without cookies, every website and every app is simply losing its memory every time you visit a new page or open up the app again. It doesn’t remember who you are and what you did or what you like. This can be fairly complicated as many of the user experience you are used to get from Brickerz when using our website or app would cease to exist.
Without this memory we, for example, can’t log you in as we forgot who you are. Or we can’t show you the rights language settings because we don’t know where you are coming from. So all these useful functionalities which makes Brickerz so enjoyable wouldn’t be possible.
