Cookie Usage

Last Updated on May 21, 2013
Recent changes to UK and EU laws require that website owners inform their visitors if they are utilizing cookies.

For those of you who do not know what a cookie is:
A cookie, also known as an HTTP cookie, web cookie, or browser cookie, is usually a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user's web browser while a user is browsing a website. When the user browses the same website in the future, the data stored in the cookie can be retrieved by the website to notify the website of the user's previous activity.

Because of this law, many users ask if Virb uses cookies. Virb does not, by default, use cookies. However, some third-party additions, like Facebook, Twitter, Google Analytics and others may add their own cookies.

If you have a site in maintenence mode or if your site has a password, then Virb does start a session cookie which allows us to know you are authenticated.
