Use of Cookies
The Piplsay website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Piplsay pages, or register with Piplsay site or services, a cookie helps Schlesinger Group to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Piplsay website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Piplsay features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Piplsay services or the website you visit.

You can, at any time, change or withdraw your consent by clicking on ‘Revoke Cookies’. You may choose to change your preference of cookies anytime, even if you previously accepted or declined the use of cookies. Clicking on ‘revoke cookies’ will not affect your ability to interact with this website or restrict your access or use of any information or content on this website.
