What are cookies?
Cookies, used by most websites, are text files stored on a user’s browser containing information about the user (e.g., information about devices and networks used to access our website). Cookies and similar technologies record certain information about your interaction with our website, products and services. E.g., If you visit our website, this would include:
- Your browser and device data, such as IP address, device type, device and advertising identifiers, browser type, screen resolution, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, language, plug-ins, add-ons and the language version of the pages you are visiting;
- Your usage data, such as time spent on our website, the pages visited, links you clicked, your language preferences, and the pages that led or referred you to our website.
- To Operate Our Systems and Infrastructure (e.g., our website). Some cookies and similar technologies are essential to the operation of our systems and infrastructure (e.g., our website). We may use those cookies and similar technologies in a number of different ways, including for example:
- Fraud Prevention and Detection. Cookies and similar technologies that we deploy throughout our systems and infrastructure help us learn things about the computers and web browsers used to access them. This information helps us monitor for and detect potentially harmful or illegal use or behavior.
- For Better Advertising. Cookies and similar technologies can help us provide more effective advertising, whether on our website or elsewhere. For example, we might use a cookie to help prevent you from seeing the same advertisement multiple times or to measure how many times an advertisement is viewed or clicked on.
Each cookie falls within one of the four following categories:
|Essential||Essential cookies are sometimes called “strictly necessary” as without them we cannot provide many features, functionalities or services that you need on our website. E.g., essential cookies help remember your preferences as you move around our website, products, or services.|
|Analytics||These cookies track user interactions, e.g., information about your visits to our website, so that we can make improvements and report our performance. This may include analyzing visitor/user behavior, so as to provide more relevant content or suggest certain activities. E.g., they collect information about how visitors use our website, which site the user came from, the number of each user’s visits and how long a user stays on our website. We might also use analytics cookies to test new ads, pages, or features to see how users react to them.|
|Functional||These cookies are used to remember information you have entered or choices you make (such as your username, language or your region) on our services.|
|Advertising||These cookies are placed by third party advertising platforms or networks in order to deliver ads and/or track ad performance, enable advertising networks to deliver ads that may be relevant to you based upon your activities (this is sometimes called “behavioral” or “targeted” advertising) on our website. They may subsequently use information about your visit to target you with advertising that you may be interested in, on our website and other websites.|
First Party and Third Party Cookies
Our website may place first party cookies and allow third parties to place cookies on your device. The difference between a ‘first party’ cookie and a ‘third party’ cookie relates to the control of the party who serves the cookie. First party cookies are cookies that are specific to the website that created them. Our use of first party cookies enables us to operate an efficient service and to track the patterns of behavior of visitors. Third party cookies, on the other hand, are placed on your device by a third party (i.e., not by us). While we may allow third parties to access the Services to place these cookies on users’ devices, we do not retain control over the information supplied by the cookies. This information is controlled wholly by that third party and subject to their privacy notice/policy. The cookies that we commonly use are listed below.
