Cookies are small files that are placed on your browser or device by the website or app you’re using. Pixel tags (also called clear GIFs, web beacons, or pixels) are small blocks of code on a webpage or app that allow us to do things like read and place cookies and transmit information to us or our partners. The resulting connection can include information such as a device’s IP address, the time a person viewed the pixel, an identifier associated with the browser or device and the type of browser being used.
Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent that allows a website or app to store and retrieve data on a person’s computer, mobile phone or other devices. Some examples include device or HTML5 local storage and caching. On the other hand, a session cookie expires at the end of the user session when the web browser is closed.
We may place or use these technologies when you interact with our Services, whether or not you are logged in. For example, when you visit our website(s) or use our applications, we may place or read cookies or receive information from your devices. We may also place cookies through a pixel on a partner’s site or through developer’s applications.
Why do we use these technologies?
We use these technologies for a variety of reasons. We use them to help you sign up for our services, to help you sign in, to improve our Service, to count how many visitors we receive to a page, or to protect your data.
While specific names of the cookies and similar technologies that we use may change from time to time as we improve and update our Service, they fall into the below categories of use:
What about mobile devices?
Web browsers send any cookies for a particular web domain (ex: universalname.space) to the website each time a device with those cookies accesses content served from that domain. This means that any universalname.space cookie will be sent to us when any page is accessed at universalname.space by that device. It also means that these cookies are sent to us when someone accesses a third-party website or application that integrates or uses our Service.
We may work with partners so that we can place or read cookies on your browsers or devices when you visit third-party services. This allows us to do things like read and reference cookies from more than one device or browser that you use, on and off of our Service, so we can provide you with consistent service across all of your devices and improve and understand your experience.
Third Party Cookies
Those developing on our Platform may collect information when you view or use them, including information about you and your device or browser. They may do this using cookies or similar technologies. We require developers to be transparent about what they collect and how they use the information. To learn more about the information they collect or receive, please review their privacy policies.
Can you control these technologies?
Your browser or device may offer settings related to these technologies, including how to delete or block them. For more information about whether these settings are available, what they do, and how they work, visit your browser or device’s help material. If you disable certain settings, we may not be able to recognize or respond to browser or device information, and that may interfere with your use of the Service or certain features of the Service.
What if you’re not a user?
- Identify and disable abuse
- Recover your account
- Provide security features
- Identify public computers
- Identify proxies
- Generate insights about users and their usage
We also set cookies if you don’t have an account, but have visited our site, to help us protect our users, the Site and Services from malicious activity like denial-of-service attacks and the automated access, and for attribution modeling purposes.
