An Overview of Cookies
Additional Technologies Used for Identification and Tracking
Even though you are examining our cookies policy, we want to alert our site users to the various technologies we use to track information. Along with different cookies, we also use Pixel tags. The tags are sometimes called pixels and other times they are called beacons: these are small segments of code called by or installed on an advertisement, web page, or app; the beacon is meant to retrieve specific information pertaining to your browser and device. Such information collections might include the gathering of your IP address, referring website, time of your visit, the website visited the browser version and type, the operating system of your device, and sometimes shows from what URL you used to access the site as well as the length of time you spent on any page. Pixels allow third parties to gather vital marketing data while accessing the information from a domain they do not operate. This is done with the permission of the domain owner and operator.
Local storage is a term that indicates additional device or browser locations where information gets stored by the owner of the site, third parties, or ads, including the browser cache and HTML5 local storage. SDKs or what some refer to as Software Development Kits operate like cookies or pixels, but are what works for tracking mobile application behavior whereas cookies and pixels do not always work with mobile apps. The application developer puts a tiny piece of coding (SDK) into the application so the app partner can gather information like how often you launch the app, the pages you visit, and how you interact with the application as well as information about your connecting network and the device you are using to operate the app in question.
