What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that contains information and which is stored on your computer. There are two types of cookies, persistent cookies and session cookies. Persistent cookies remain on the user's computer until the user removes them or the expiration date expires and the user returns to www.systecongroup.com/gl. Some persistent cookies can be used to track a user's visit to multiple websites. Session cookies are missing expiration date and stored temporarily in the user's computer while the user visits www.systecongroup.com/gl. The session cookies disappear when the user closes its browser.
How visitors can handle cookies
Users can choose whether and to what extent cookies should be stored on the user's computer through the user’s browser settings. Through the browser, the user can also delete previously stored cookies.

Most Google users will have a preferences cookie called ‘NID’ in their browsers. A browser sends this cookie with requests to Google’s sites. The NID cookie contains a unique ID Google uses to remember your preferences and other information, such as your preferred language (e.g. English), how many search results you wish to have shown per page (e.g. 10 or 20), and whether or not you wish to have Google’s SafeSearch filter turned on.
Loss of the information stored in a preference cookie may make the website experience less functional but should not prevent it from working.
Storage period: 30 days
