Many jurisdictions require or recommend that website operators inform users/visitors as to the nature of cookies they utilize and, in certain circumstances, obtain the consent of their users to the placement of certain cookies.
WHAT IS COOKIE?
Some of the cookies will only be used if you use certain features or select certain preferences, and some cookies will always be used.
Web beacons, tags and scripts may be used in the site or in emails to help us to deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness and determine whether an email has been opened and acted upon.
We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by our service/analytics providers on an individual and aggregated basis.
Whether a cookie is 'first' or 'third' party refers to the domain placing the cookie.
- First-party cookies are those set by a site that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g. cookies placed by icoguide.com).
- Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the site being visited by the user. If a user visits a site and another entity sets a cookie through that site, this would be a third-party cookie.
- Persistent cookies: these cookies remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the site that created that particular cookie.
- Session cookies: these cookies allow site operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
