Definition of Flash Cookies

Flash cookies, also known as Local Shared Objects (LSOs), are small files stored on your computer when you visit a website that uses Flash.

These cookies are used to remember settings, preferences, and usage statistics for websites, and can be used by advertisers to track user activity across different sites.

Flash cookies cannot be managed using regular browser settings, so users must use dedicated tools designed to delete and block them if they wish to control their online privacy.
