שרות פרייסלי מבצע איסוף של מידע על מחירים ומבצעים ממקורות מידע אשר פתוחים לציבור הרחב. המידע נאסף על בסיס יומי. איסוף המידע נתון למגבלות טכניות ותתכנה תקלות נקודתיות בפעולת האיסוף. 

יודגש כי על אף הנסיון לספק שרות פרודוקטיבי למפתחים, אין בשרות פרייסלי כל התחייבות לנכונות הנתונים בכל זמן נתון! 

כמו כן יודגש שהשרות כפי שהוא כיום אינו מבצע הצלבה של המידע מול מספר מקורות, אלא משתמש במקור יחיד כפי שזה מסופק לציבור הרחב באמצעות קבצים, ולכן יתכנו הבדלים בין הנתונים המונגשים דרך השירות לבין נתונים אשר מוצגים במקומות אחרים.

Cookies are small files of data, stored by websites scripts in the cache of your web-browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, etc') for the purpose of enhancing user experience, providing much faster surfing experience, and being able to provide many of the modern services of customizing user experience based on user behaviour in a website. In simple words: Cookies are a way for personalizing user experience on a website, and mainly for most of the cases where users are not subscribers of a website. So, saving a data about user uses the local cache of a browser.

Some examples:

1. Google Analytics cookies: some of our websites uses Google analytics script. The purpose of this script is to collect information about website traffic. The collected data is then presented to website owner on a special account as Google Analytics website. Using this information website owner can have better understanding of the way, users use his of her website. This can include for example, graph of amount of visits, pages visited, the time user spend on a website, the location (country) from where user arrived, the type of browser user is using and more. Website owner may want to use this information in order to improve website, to evaluate the business model of a website, to evaluate the success of promotion activity and more. What important here is to understand that website owner does use statistical data for the macro perspective of a website. Note that I first used the term "traffic" and not "users". For us, website owners, understanding the trends of a "traffic" and the behaviour of the "traffic" on our website is extremely important in order to estimate the relevancy of our website, to the kind of "users" we expected to receive as a traffic. Your personal contact information is becoming important only when you subscribe, and only for websites, that allow subscription, like this website (www.rhizome-networs.com). Google analytics cookies are look like that in the browser's cache:

2. Login user cookie: Many of the websites on web requires you to login before you can access some section of a website. How can those websites remember that you were logged-in when you move from one page to another, and present you name? The answer is simple - theses websites uses Cookies to keep your identity after logged-in, and then when you switch from one page to another the Cookie is examined and you identity is presented. This can be even more sophisticated. Once a Cookie with your identity was set, then next-time you visit this website, website can tell who you are only by your Cookie, even before you login again. This allow a website to personalize your experience for example, offering you a coupon for purchasing some product in discount, event without requiring you to login. Login Cookie can looks like this:

3. Cookies from advertising widgets: Many websites uses advertising as a mean for funding website activity. In fact, advertising, and affiliate marketing (commission based advertising) is something that almost any website owner learn to use and apply to website at some point or another in a website life-cycle, unless a better approach for function website activity, and organization activities, is found. That way advertising widgets are so commonly used. The Cookie of advertising widget keep information that help the 3'rd party agency that provide the advertising to try and match ads to traffic. Have you noticed that many times, an advertisement, lets say from Google AdWords, is tracking you while you move from one website to another? How is that possible? You already know the answer - Cookie. Here is an example of cookies received from AdSense widgets that show Google Ads on some of our websites:
