This page presents the cookie policy of Bastas Publications (hereinafter referred to as “Bastas”, “We”, “Our”, or “Us”) and its affiliated journal websites.

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or your smart device when you visit websites. Most modern websites use cookies to remember you and your preferences when you login, the contents of your shopping cart, analyze your browsing behavior, etc. Some of these cookies are stored temporarily for the duration of existing the browser session only (session cookies), and some of them are more permanently stored even after the browser session ends, possibly with an expiration date (persistent or permanent cookies). While some of these cookies may be essential for the successful operation of the website, others are used to serve other functions, web analytics, and targeted advertising. 

As Bastas Publications, we only use a temporary session cookie and a persistent cookie to enable core functions that are essential for our websites:

Source Name Type Persistency Expire Purpose
Bastas ASP.NET_SessionId Essential Session when browser session ends Identify visitor between requests
Bastas accept-privacy Essential Persistent 365 days Hide privacy notice

The cookie "ASP.NET_SessionId" is only used to correctly count the number of views and downloads associated with the articles and does not allow us to identify the personality of the individual visitor.

The cookie "accept-privacy" is only used to hide the privacy notice at the bottom of the page between visits for 365 days.

Since we only use two cookies that are necessary for the proper functioning of our websites, no consent is required for their deposition. While most browsers offer their users the option to configure cookie preferences to disable or block the use of cookies, choosing this will prevent some functionalities of our websites.

We reserve the right to make changes to this policy at any time without prior notification.
