These are temporary-stored browser records. They are required to memorize your activities on smalltech.club. Without session cookies, the site would treat you as a new visitor with every single visit. This is rather inconvenient and makes you react to the same events many times, for example, to close the same notifications with each visit. Session cookies are stored in a browser during a limited timeframe. They expire automatically when you leave the site and do not affect the performance of your device or the experience of using other sites.
Records of this type are stored on your device and enable basic functions of the platform like system logging in, account management, etc. Please, note that the cookies require little disc space and are involved when you are using our site only.
They are responsible for memorizing the timezone, language, and other browser settings as well as displaying relevant content. We use them for some selected features.

This information plays an important role for us to deliver better services, fix bugs, adjust our business plan, etc. By simply accepting cookies, you contribute significantly to the development of our company without providing us with your feedback directly.
