The Cookies We Set

First Party Cookies

First party cookies are only used by this website to keep a session active with the server. Such cookies are purely required for the proper functioning of this website and no personal data is transferred or stored during the process.

The cookies and the functionality they provide are as follows:

  • The cookie 'connect-sid' is used to render the navigation bar on this website. Although not used at the moment, this website has the functionality to host multiple Minecraft mods. The session is used to display the navbar of the last mod visited when visiting a 'non-mod' page, such as the current page. Disabling the cookie 'connect-sid' will disable this functionality and may cause the navigation bar of this website to misbehave.
  • The cookie 'io' is used when downloading a file from this website. It is used to make sure the file can only be downloaded by the one actually clicking the download button on the download page. This prevents external websites from directly linking to download files on this website which has caused problems in the past. Disabling the cookie 'io' will disable this functionality and will cause the user to become unable to download any files from this website.
