The Sites employ “cookies” when a User visits the Sites. In general, cookies are small pieces of text that are saved on a website or app visitor’s device by the website server or app. They enable a website/app to remember small amounts of information between pages or visits.
A. Types and Uses of Cookies
The types we use are:
• Essential cookies strictly necessary to enable Users to use our Services as they expect and to ensure proper performance, security, and functionality, such as navigating through pages of the Sites, accessing secure portions of the Services, authenticating Users, and helping prevent unauthorized use of a Member’s account. Without these cookies, the Sites and Services cannot function properly;
• Personalization and preference cookies, such as those remembering login information or storing a User’s settings and browsing preferences. Loss of these cookies may restrict or make a User’s experience with the Sites/Services less convenient or operational;
• Statistical cookies. We use this information for analyzing data in aggregate form to help us better understand how Users access and interact with the Sites and Services and to improve the quality and relevance of our Services.
The cookies we use do not contain a User’s name, address, phone number, email address, or anything to personally identify a User. Where required by applicable law, we seek to obtain the User’s consent before using cookies. Where the installation of cookies is based on consent, such consent can be freely withdrawn at any time as described below.
We use Google Analytics (“GA”), a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. that tracks and reports website traffic. GA allows us to analyze use of the Sites/Services by providing us information such as counts of pages viewed on the Sites, the number of unique visitors, number and length of sessions, certain attributes of the browser software, operating systems, and hardware used by visitors of the Sites, and by compiling reports on activities related to the Sites. For more information about Google Analytics cookies, visit: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245.
B. Managing Cookie Preferences
Users can manage preferences for cookies directly within the privacy settings of their browsers and devices, including preventing cookie files from being installed or erasing those previously installed. Because each browser and device system handles this differently, you should check the help function of your browser and device for more information. The domain we use to set cookies is tradebeyond.com.
