2. Definition: Cookies and similar technologies

The term cookie refers to data that is sent from a website and saved on visitors' devices (computers, mobile handsets, etc.) when they access the website, as a tag that allows the device in question to be recognized.
World championships 2021 Fukuoka's websites use two types of cookies: first-party cookies, which are created by the Committee, and third-party cookies, which are sent via the website by partners of the Committee (agencies serving ads on websites that have been visited, providers of software used by the Committee to analyse usage of the website, etc.). Through the use of cookies it is possible to obtain information such as how many times a device has visited a website and which other websites have been visited by the user in question in the past.
A similar technology known as a beacon (or pixel), which is used to send information from users' devices to a server, can be embedded in online content such as video or email messages. By using beacons, it is possible to obtain information from user devices, including how many times content has been viewed, the times and dates of such viewings, and whether an email message has been opened.
As described in Section 4 below, functionality associated with cookies and similar technologies can be disabled via browser settings.
