- We may use session cookies and persistent cookies in connection with the Sites or for providing the Creatio Services to you. Session cookies refer to cookies that are operable for the duration of your visit only and are deleted when you close your browser.

Persistent cookies are not deleted from your browser at the end of a session and are typically used to remember your preferences for future visits and/or to provide targeted advertising based on your activities on the Sites.
- These cookies make websites easier to use as you won’t need to repeatedly select your preferences each time you visit. A good example would be a website with language settings – perhaps you choose to change the content language from English to French. The next time you visit the website, your preference will be remembered.

The help and support area on your internet browser should have instructions on how to block or delete cookies. Some web browsers (including some mobile web browsers) provide settings that allow you to control or reject cookies or to alert you to when a cookie is placed on your computer, tablet or mobile device.

Only authorized Creatio personnel have access to the personal information, including server logs and cookie utilization data, that we collect. These individuals are required to follow strict security policies and procedures.

Creatio may also place internal restrictions on who in the Company may access data to help prevent unauthorized access to such information.
