We typically use cookies to improve your overall experience, for example by being able to remember who you are and where in the website you have visited. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by the web server supplying the website. The below information will describe which cookies are used for and how they can be disabled. Cookies are NOT viruses and cannot be used to execute programs. In many cases, a website needs to use a cookie in order to function correctly.

We use two different types of cookies on our website:

1. A session cookie is a temporary cookie which is erased when you close the browser. The session cookie is used to keep track of which Hoist Finance web server you were connected to when you first loaded the site. Many websites including this site use more than one web server to handle and spread the traffic. It is important for the website to be able to know which web server is dealing with your traffic and so the session cookie contains that information.

2. A persistent cookie is the type of the cookie which remains on your computer or mobile device for a predefined period of time. Persistent cookies are used to collect visitor behavior information and to collect statistics.
