Managing Your Cookie Preferences
The duration of a cookie varies depending on its type and purpose. Session cookies are temporary and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. In contrast, persistent cookies remain on your device until they expire or are manually deleted. The expiration time for persistent cookies can range from a few hours to several months or even years, depending on the cookie's purpose and the settings of your browser.
Cookies used for authentication, security, or personalization may have a shorter lifespan, as they are typically linked to your specific session or account. Performance, advertising, and social media cookies may have a longer lifespan, as they are designed to track user behavior and preferences over an extended period.
Please note that third-party cookies, such as those placed by our partners or advertisers, may have different durations than the cookies set directly by itsmysoft.com. To learn more about the duration of third-party cookies, we recommend reviewing the privacy policies of the respective third parties.
