Most modern websites utilize cookies to enhance the user experience. In practice, this means there's a short text file saved in the browser. The information in this file shall not identify you as a person, but various types of information is saved in the cookie either until your visit is over (session), or within a given time limit.
Functions on this website that require cookies to function include the building function. The information regarding the contents of your list is saved in a cookie. Without this possibility, it's very difficult to return to the website and continue building your PC. (It's actually impossible!)
Deletion and de-activation of cookies

Google offers a browser extension called "Google Analytics Opt-out" to users of the Chrome browser. This gives you the possibility to deny Google Analytics the possibility of measuring your usage. You can read more about and download the extension at google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.. There are also some other browser extensions that block Google Analytics, such as uBlock Origin.

The tool Google Universal Analytics is used to measure the traffic on our website, which gives us valuable insight on how to improve it. The data is saved for 50 months. We only save anonymous information and can not identify you through Analytics data. We are not a port of Google's advertising network, which means we do not share the information with any third part.
Links to products in some retailers go exclusively through an affiliate partner. This means a cookie will be saved in your browser so that the retailer can know that you found them through BUILDAPC.GG. Knowing this, we can get a small commission if you decide to buy something. This means we are able to pay the server bills without showing you irrelevant ads. Retailers that we currently have an affiliate partnership with are NetonNet, CDON, Dustin, and Webhallen.
