What are cookies, pixel tags (aka clear GIFs or web beacons), local shared objects and web storage?
A cookie is a piece of information that is placed on your web browser when you access and/or use the Services that stores text and which can later be read back by the Services or third parties. They are used to recognize your browser.
2. Pixel Tags (aka Clear GIFs or Web Beacons)
A pixel tag is a tiny invisible tag or graphic placed on certain parts of the Services, in emails or in certain other downloadable content, but not on your computer, mobile device or browser.
3. Local Shared Objects (aka Flash Cookies)
A local shared object is similar to a cookie, except it is stored on your computer or mobile device, instead of your browser, and it can store more than just text. The methods for controlling local shared objects are different than the methods for controlling cookies (as discussed below).
4. Web Storage (aka HTML5 Local Storage)
Web storage methods are similar to cookies but can store more information than cookies and usually store that information on a persistent basis.
How can I manage these technologies?
Cookies may be session cookies (i.e., last only for one browser session) or persistent cookies (i.e., continue in your browser until they are affirmatively deleted). You can manage cookies through your web browser’s option settings and through those settings you may be able (i) to receive notifications when you are receiving new cookies, (ii) to disable cookies or (iii) to delete cookies. Please refer to your web browser’s help section for information on how to do this.
2. Pixel Tags
Pixel tags do not store information on your computer, mobile device or browser (although they are occasionally downloaded to your computer if contained in an email or other downloadable content) so cannot be managed by you.
3. Local Shared Objects
Local shared objects are stored on your computer or mobile device. To learn how to manage privacy and storage settings for local shared objects, click here.
4. Web Storage
Web Storage, or HTML5 Local Storage, is an industry-standard data storage technology that is implemented by browser manufacturers. Refer to your browser’s help contents for procedures on how to manage settings for Web Storage.
What do you use these technologies for?
Generally we use these technologies for one of the following reasons:
1. Essential (strictly necessary)
We use these technologies to analyze how you use our Services and to monitor our Services. For example, we may place cookies that allow us (i) to measure the time of your requests to our servers and our responses, (ii) to A/B test new features, (iii) to record statistics about site usage, (iv) to track your activities on the Services, and (v) to track the places from which you come to the Services.
We use these technologies to allow us to provide certain functionality on the Services and to remember your preferences. For instance, when you click the “remember me” box on our log in page we place a persistent cookie on your browser that allows our Services to pre-populate your email address when you return. Other examples include remembering your preferences, preventing web application vulnerabilities, allowing for third party integrations, and in connection with providing search results.
Does anybody else use these technologies on your Services?
Most of the cookies and other technologies described above on our Services are set by us (aka first party cookies) or are used in connection with the Services and set by third party service providers at our direction (“Third Party Cookies”). We may use Third Party Cookies with respect to each of the uses set forth above. For example, we use technologies from Google Analytics to measure performance/analytics.
