POLICY ON COOKIES AND OTHER SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES
Reedact can set or read cookies and device identifiers when you are using the Reedact Platform or are visiting a website, app, or service that uses our Services.
1. Some useful information on cookies and device identifiers
1.1. What is a cookie?
An “Internet Cookie” (also known as “cookie browser” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file consisting of letters and numbers stored on your computer, mobile or other equipment utilized by a user for accessing the Internet.
The cookie is installed based on a request issued by a web-server to a browser (such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (it does not contain any software, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the hard- drive of the user). The cookie stores certain information (for example, your preferred language or web page settings) that your browser can retransmit when you go back to the web page (depending on the cookie’s lifespan).
Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users.
1.2. What are the types of cookies?
There are several types of cookies. Their classification is based on their lifespan, role and source, as follows:
- Types of cookies by lifespan
they are temporarily stored in the web browser’s cookie folder where they are stored until the user exits the web site or closes the browser window (for example, when logging on / off from a webmail account or social network).
They are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device (and generally depend on the default cookie lifetime). Persistent cookies also include those placed on a website other than the one the user is currently visiting – known as ‘third party cookies’ – which can be used anonymously to store a user’s interests so that advertising is delivered as relevant as possible to users.
- Types of cookies depending on their role
Strictly required cookies
These types of cookies are required for websites to function properly. The strictly required cookies allow you to navigate the site and enjoy its features. Without these cookies, we shall not be able to offer certain features, such as automatic redirection to the least busy server or retaining your wish list.
Functional cookies record information about choices that users make, and they also allow site operators to customize the site according to the user’s requirements. For example, cookies can be used to save category / segment preferences.
Performance and analysis cookies
These types of cookies allow Internet site operators to monitor visits and traffic sources, how users interact with the internet page or certain sections of the website.
Information provided by analysis cookies helps operators understand how visitors use sites and then use this information to improve the way content is presented to users.
Targeting and advertising cookies
These cookies can provide the ability to monitor users’ online activities and set up user profiles that can then be used for marketing purposes. For example, based on cookies, the products and services agreed by a user can be identified, this information subsequently serving to transmit appropriate advertising messages to that user.
- First party cookies vs. third party cookies
Each cookie has a “responsible” (i.e. website / Internet domain) that places that cookie.
First party cookies (first part) are placed by the Internet domain / website accessed by the user (whose address appears in the browser address bar). For example, if the user visits www.reedact.com and the cookie field placed on his / her computer is www.reedact.com then it is a first party cookie.
A third-party cookie (third party) is placed by another Internet domain / website other than the one accessed by the user; this means that the website you access also contains information from a third-party site – for example, an ad banner that appears on the site you’re accessing. Thus, if the user visits www.reedact.com but the cookie placed on his computer has mybusole.net as domain then it is a third-party cookie.
- Built-in content (buttons, apps, and social widgets)
Webpages allow the implementation of third-party social buttons or widgets that allow users to interact with sites whose social buttons or widgets are being deployed. User interaction with third-party social buttons or widgets allows the third party to collect some information about that user, including the IP address, page header information, and browser information.
- How do targeting and advertising cookies work?
In general, data about Internet browsing activity is collected and analyzed anonymously. If this analysis reveals a specific interest, a cookie (a small text file used by most sites to store some useful information to make browsing experience better) – is placed on the user’s computer, and this cookie determines what ad is received by the user, which is called interest-based advertising.
Interest-based advertising is a way to deliver ads on the websites you visit and make them more relevant to your interests. The common interests are grouped according to the previously deployed browsing activity and the users are only served with the advertising that matches their interests. In this way, advertising is relevant and as useful as possible.
To better understand …
Imagine you want to change your CV or are looking for a job. You visit the section of a specialized site (e.g. www.reedact.com) and read some relevant articles about career advice or jobs.
At the next online browsing, when you go online to read, for example, a news article or an online store page, you are being delivered as ad the resume-builder notice posted on a specialized site (such as www.reedact.com).
You shall receive these specially personalized ad messages, because you and others like you have shown an increased interest in these services. This way you can improve your web experience by reducing the number of non-interest-based ads.
