What is the retention period applicable to our cookies?
When you visit the ChargeGuru website, two types of cookies are generated: session cookies and persistent cookies.
Session cookies are temporarily created in the subfolder of your browser when you visit a website. Once you leave the website, the session cookie is deleted.
Persistent cookie files remain in your browser's subfolder and are reactivated once you visit the website where you created that specific cookie. A persistent cookie remains in the browser's subfolder for the time defined in the cookie file.
For the latter, their useful life is proportional to the purpose of the cookie and is limited to a maximum retention period for consent, that is, 365 days.
More specifically, special rules apply to our audience measurement cookies:
- The useful life of these cookies is 13 months;
- 24 months for the period of retention of consent.
