What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files containing a string of characters that can be placed on your computer or mobile device that uniquely identify your browser or device.
What are cookies used for?
Cookies allow a site or services to know if your computer or device has visited that site or service before. Cookies can then be used to help you navigate between pages efficiently, help remember your preferences, and generally improve your browsing experience. They can also be used to assist understanding of how the site or service is being used, and to help ensure marketing you may see online is more relevant to you and your interests.
What types of cookies does HRA Stud Book Online use?
The only cookies used by the HRA Stud Book Online are to facilitate the security of the system, and as such are not optional. If you inspect your browser cookies, you will see up to two cookies for this site:
.AspNet.ApplicationCookie keeps track of your authenticated session and relevant session data, so you don’t need to enter your password on every single page. This stores anything the application needs to “remember” your current browsing session, including keeping you logged in when you close a browser tab (or open additional tabs). This cookie is encrypted, so the data within it can’t be read, except by the HRA system. This is a session cookie.
__RequestVerificationToken is a security feature that ensures that malicious scripts on your computer or the internet can’t send requests to the HRA system on your behalf. This value may change over time, and doesn’t contain any user information whatsoever – it is only a security feature. This is a persistent cookie.
How long will cookies stay on my device?
The length of time a cookie will stay on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing or logout. Persistent cookies stay on your computer or mobile device until they expire or are deleted.
Third party cookies
HRA Stud Book Online does not make use of any third-party cookies at this time.
