Cookies Use


This site (“www.ucadia.com”) does not use cookies, session cookies or tracking pixels of any kind for storing or retrieving information on the computers, smartphones, tablets or devices of visitors.

What is a cookie or tracking pixel?

A Cookie is defined as:

A cookie is a small file created by some websites when visitors access that website and then stored in the settings of the web browser of the visitor. The existence and identity of a cookie can usually be established either by the IP address of the website or its name as a record in the web browser settings for cookies. A cookie then enables the storage and retrieval of data between the website and the computer, smartphone, tablet or other device of the visitor. A session cookie is a form of cookie where a second small file is also created and stored on a related server to the website using cookies. Session cookies are often used to store important information on a server rather than the computer of the visitor. A tracking pixel is a small transparent image file, often just 1 pixel by 1 pixel, that loads onto a web page or web enabled email for tracking and reporting purposes.

Privacy concerns of all forms of cookies

While cookies and tracking pixels cannot carry viruses, and cannot install malware on the host computer, tracking cookies and especially third-party tracking cookies are commonly used as way to compile long-term records of individuals' browsing histories. Privacy Laws and regulations in many countries and regions around the world now legally require sites that use cookies to physically disclose this fact to visitors and to allow visitors to “opt out” in not having to use cookies.

Security concerns of all forms of cookies

All forms of cookies, especially session cookies are a major security vulnerability for the disclosure of personal and sensitive data. Firstly, cookies destined for the web browser of a visitor can be intercepted or read with relative ease, using off-the-shelf hacking and malicious sniffing tools. Session cookies that are stored on a server environment are especially vulnerable given dedicated bots across the internet now look for and target such functions. Consequently, the use of cookies for the store and retrieval of personal or sensitive data represents a major security vulnerability, even if efforts are made to restrict access and unauthorised use.

Consequently, this site fully complies with all available privacy and disclosure legislation concerning this particular subject.
