Cookie Policy

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data stored on a site visitor's browser. They are typically used to keep track of the settings users have selected and actions they have taken on a site.

How do we use cookies and other tracking tools?

Wix uses cookies for many important reasons, such as:

  • To provide a great experience for my visitors and customers.

  • To identify registered members (users who registered to your site)

  • To monitor and analyse the performance, operation and effectiveness of Wix's platform.

  • To ensure our platform is secure and safe to use. 

 

Types of cookies

Cookies can be classified according to their type, duration and category.


Type:

  • First-party cookies: Cookies that Wix places on your site. 

  • Third-party cookies: Cookies that are placed and used by third parties. 


Duration:

  • Session (transient) cookies: These cookies are erased when site visitors close their browsers and are not used to collect information from their computers. They typically store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the user.

  • Persistent (permanent or stored) cookies: These cookies are stored on a site visitor's hard drive until they expire (at a set expiration date) or until they are deleted. These cookies are used to collect identifying information about the user, such as web surfing behaviour or user preferences for a specific site.

  • Strictly necessary cookies: These are the cookies that let your visitors browse through your site. They are also necessary for security reasons.
