What is a Cookie?
A cookie is a small file stored on your device (computer, tablet or phone) that activates some of Appinux’s features. For example, cookies may enable us to identify your device, protect your access to Appinux and our sites, and even help us tell us if others are trying to access your account on a foreign device. In addition, cookies are used to enhance the experience you have with our system.
We use two types: “persistent cookies” and “session cookies”. A “persistent cookie” helps us recognize you as an existing user, making it easier for you to get back to Appinux or interact with our services without having to reset the system. “Session cookies” will only last as long as your session (usually the current visit to a website, or as long as the browser is open).
What are Cookies used for?
Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit Appinux, remember your preferences and give you a personalized experience in line with your preferences. Appinux remembers which language you choose the first time you log in, as well as the settings you have in relation to the webcam and microphone (the first time you try to make a screen visit, we ask for permission to use these). Cookies can also make it safer and faster for you to communicate with Appinux.
If you are logged into Appinux, cookies can help us show you the right information and customize your experience.

What is DNT (Do Not Track)?
DNT is a term put forward by regulatory authorities such as the US Commerce Commission (FTC) to encourage the Internet industry to develop and implement a system that allows users to control how their online activities are tracked on various websites, using browser settings. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has partnered with industry groups, internet browsers, technology companies and lawmakers to develop a standard for DNT technology. Although some agreement has been reached, work is slowly progressing. A standard has not yet been agreed. Appinux generally does not respond to “do not track” signals.
No. Appinux does not use third-party cookies. The data that is on the platform and on our own website is used solely to create a better service for the user, and that we can keep track of what traffic is on our network.
Control over Cookies
Every browser is different, and there are even differences in how some browsers work on a computer, tablet and phone. Appinux software is developed in Google Chrome, so we recommend using it as it will provide the best experience with the platform. On the browser manufacturers’ help pages, you can find information on managing cookies in their products. See below for more information:
Google Chrome is the browser we recommend to use. This is because all our software is developed based on Google’s open source and thus works best in this browser. Furthermore, it is the only browser where we know video calling will work.
Edge is Microsoft’s own browser, which is an update to the old Emplorer. In this browser, most functionalities will work, but we cannot guarantee that everything will work properly. Video is not supported. That’s why we always prefer to use Google Chrome.
Mozilla Firefox is an excellent browser that contains many of the same things as Google chrome. Most things will work, but video is not supported.
Safari is the browser that Apple uses on its products. Most things will work, but we can’t guarantee it. Video is not supported.
