If you do not agree to the use of cookies in this way, you should adjust your browser settings or do not use the PayChallenge website. Choosing to delete and/or disable the cookies may impact your experience of our website.



“Cookies” are small text files that are stored on your device (computer, tablet, mobile phone) through the browser and are commonly used to retain information about website visit through several sessions (e.g. preferences, pages visited, etc.). These cookies are not active files, therefore they cannot contain viruses or be executed.



The cookies that PayChallenge uses on this website may be classified according to criteria like lifespan, managing entity and their purpose.



  • Session (or temporary) cookies: deleted from your device when you leave the website and close the browser. The information obtained by these cookies is used to analyze traffic patterns, which makes it possible to identify problems and optimize the browsing experience.
  • Persistent Cookies: stay on the device even after you leave the website and close the browser until the end of their deadline or until you manually delete them. This type of cookies allows a visitor who returns to the PayChallenge website to be recognized as such and not as a new visitor, allowing a greater customization of the global browsing experience.

  • Functional cookies: anonymously record your preferences regarding the use of the PayChallenge website (for example, your username or language) so you do not have to configure them each time you visit our website. These cookies enable an easier and more personalized browsing experience and, in certain cases, may also be used to avoid displaying services or messages that you have declined on a previous visit. By deleting and/or blocking this type of cookies, your preferences will not be stored for future visits.
  • Advertising cookies: collect information about your browsing habits to provide you with content that is more relevant, more aligned with your interests, and less invasive.
