1. What are cookies?

Most websites you visit use cookies to improve your online experience. For the same reasons, so do we. Cookies are text files, containing small amounts of information, stored in your browsing device or on your hard drive when you visit our website or Services. These cookies can then be recalled by a web server in the same domain that placed the cookie. Doing so allows us to differentiate between you and all our other visitors.

Generally, there are two types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie lasts while you leave your browser open, but is deleted when you close your browser. It’s easiest to think of session cookies as a website’s short-term memory which allow our site to recognize you as you move from page to page within our domain.

A persistent cookie however lasts until you, or your browser settings, delete the cookie or the cookie itself expires. Without persistent cookies, site would not be able to remember your preferences like your menu settings, language selection and other information that is useful in storing between sessions.

In addition, there are third-party cookies not owned by Nebula but are instead placed on your browsing device through our website. The parties that set third-party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits Nebula or other certain websites or apps. Nebula has no control over third-party cookies. You should check any third-party’s website for more information on how they use cookies.

4. Third-party Advertising and Analytics Tracking

In other cases, it is because our web pages contain web beacons used to track interaction with and effectiveness of content (such as videos, news content) and ads from third parties. Because your browser connects to those third parties’ web servers to retrieve that content, those third parties are able to set or read their own cookies on your device and may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites or online services.
