WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text files that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit it.

Some functions of the website require that the data on one page are temporarily stored for reuse on another page. Our cookies for user input (user input cookies) are persistent cookies, i.e. they are active for a period of between a few days and several years.
The security cookies can be blocked. However, doing so can cause Predict to stop performing certain functions.
When you log in to your Predict account, we set an encrypted cookie with which we can uniquely identify you so that you will automatically remain logged in on subsequent visits to Predict.academy. This is a permanent cookie that expires after 90 days and is renewed every time you visit Predict.
Authentication cookies can be blocked. However, doing so may prevent you from being able to sign in to Predict.
Many functions of the website save your settings in cookies, such as how a function is displayed or used.
Settings cookies can be blocked. However, this can mean that all functions that rely on saving the settings are not carried out.

You can refuse analysis cookies using the instructions in the section “How to control cookies”.
