In compliance with directive 2009/136/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council, of 25.11.2009, users of web applications should be provided with clear and comprehensive information when engaging in an activity which results in storage of their information, such as cookies. Also, each country implements its own directives regarding this issue. You can find the official documentation here.
The remainder of this topic refers to Agile Platform version 5.0 and higher.
When someone visits a web application, a cookie is placed on the customer's machine (if the customer accepts cookies) or is read if the customer has previously visited the web application. Cookies are used to improve the usability of web applications, but can also be used for collecting metrics for generating visitor statistics, among others.
Not Accepting Cookies
If you choose to not have your browser accept cookies from applications created with the Agile Platform, you will still be able to access screens of the application which do not require authentication and read their content. However, functionality may be limited. For applications created with the Agile Platform that require you to login with a username and password some or all functionalities may not be available if cookies are disabled.
The following table describes the cookies used by the Agile Platform. Not only a list of cookies is described, but their detailed information such as size, duration and purpose.
This the list of the cookies created by default by the Agile Platform. Do not forget that your applications may explicitly implement additional cookies, and in such scenarios you need to disclose their purpose to the users.
