A "Cookie" is a text file that websites send to a visitor's computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor's browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A "web beacon" is also called a Web bug or a pixel tag or a clear GIF. Used in combination with Cookies, a Web beacon is an often transparent graphic image, usually no larger than 1 pixel by 1 pixel, that is placed on a Web site or in an email that is used to monitor the behavior of the user visiting the Web site or sending the email.
We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it's easier to return to our Services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by our Services when you return to the Services. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a web site or a browser session).
Cookies and ad technology such as web beacons, pixels, and anonymous ad network tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us collect aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers. Pixels help us understand and improve our service, show you ads on the Services, and The MBJ Group PBC,, and know when content has been shown to you. Note: Because your web browser may request advertisements and web beacons directly from ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.
We use third party advertising companies who may place or access Cookies on your computer hard drive to distinguish your web browser uniquely and to keep track of information relating to serving ads on your web browser, such as the type of ads shown and the web pages on which they appeared. These companies may use information about your visits to the Services and to other sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you on the Services or on other, third party, sites. We also may give third party advertisers the ability to tailor their advertisements on the Services using demographic and preference information we provide them in aggregate form. This information does not identify you individually.
These third party companies operate under their own privacy policies and We encourage you to be aware of the privacy policies of such companies. We do no have control over or access to any information contained in the cookies that are set on your computer by third party advertisers.
Most modern browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, your overall user experience may be impaired, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information.
