Clarification Request
I am asking you again Yes we use cookies

In reply to: Yes, we use cookies

@Kees_B @ob__B  @members

I ask you again why Nozbe declare "We are using cookies."

Can I take positive or negative?

I never ask you the general meaning of cookies.

If I assume it positive

Any site uses cookies regardless of the place. In this case, Nozbe is from the USA.
They declare they protect the personal information of the user. That is why the user does not worry about the information leaks.

If I assume it negative

I thought the site declare against the user tries to use Proxy or Tor and son. That is why Nozbe declare "We pay much attention
against such users.

Looking forward to having your further advice.

>But Nozbe should be shamed for not answering your question directly.
That is natural.That is why I posted my question in this forum.

>They have something to sell you and they failed to make the sale.
It does not ring a bell at all.

>Cookies and use by sites is well discussed at https://www.google.com/search?q=why+do+sites+use+cookies%3F&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8
Sorry I would not read through. This is too much for me.

Re: cookies

Practically all sites use cookies. In the European Union they have to inform the user better than that site does, and allow some choices for advertising and tracking. Apparently, where they live, they don't.

It's fully up to the designer of the site what to do with the cookies they use. If you don't trust it, don't use that site. It's as simple as that.

They declare they protect the personal information of the user. That is why the user does not worry about the information leaks.
I thought the site declare against the user tries to use Proxy or Tor and son.

At the link I supplied just read the top paragraph.
It just explains cookies.

Right now your on cnet.
Cnet placed a bunch of cookies on your machine.
As to how to look at them or block them that will depend on your browser.
If you do start blocking cookies many sites won't work.
