Dear Oxwall team.

Please could you help me to clarify which types of cookies are used by Oxwall exactly? I think there are no third party cookies.



Any of following ones are used there?


  • user‑input cookies (session-id) such as first‑party cookies to keep track of the user's input when filling online forms, shopping carts, etc., for the duration of a session or persistent cookies limited to a few hours in some cases
  • authentication cookies, to identify the user once he has logged in, for the duration of a session
  • user‑centric security cookies, used to detect authentication abuses, for a limited persistent duration
  • multimedia content player cookies, used to store technical data to play back video or audio content, for the duration of a session
  • load‑balancing cookies, for the duration of session
  • user‑interface customisation cookies such as language or font preferences, for the duration of a session (or slightly longer)
  • third‑party social plug‑in content‑sharing cookies, for logged‑in members of a social network

  • If Oxwall uses only these types of cookies there is no need to apply The  European Cookie policy....basically it means a site owner does not need to ask a vistor for a conset to use the cookies.

    Martin Baso, the cookies in our system does not save the private and specific user information. We use cookies just for user interface and IDs of user sessions.

    So, our system use the following types of cookies:
    - user‑input cookies
    - authentication cookies
    - multimedia content player cookies
    - user‑interface customisation cookies
    - third‑party social plug‑in content‑sharing cookies

    Note, we can not give you information about the third-party plugin cookies.
