What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your browser or device by websites, apps, online media, and advertisements. There are different types of cookies. Cookies served by the entity that operates the domain you are visiting are called “first party cookies.” Therefore, cookies served by the Company whilst you visit equitory.com are first party cookies.
