1. What Is A Cookie?A cookie is a small text file (often including a unique identifier), that is stored in the user’s computer, tablet, mobile phone or other digital device (collectively, “Computer”), either temporarily for that session only (temporary cookie) or for longer periods on the hard disk (persistent cookie). Cookies provide a way for the website to recognize you and keep track of your preferences. Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, 1Bridge) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites. You can choose whether to accept Cookies by changing the settings on your browser. However, if you disable this function, your experience on the Site may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.
2. What Cookies Do We Use?Below we list the different types of Cookies that are used on the Site that you are visiting.
Essential CookiesEssential Cookies enable you to navigate the Site and to use its services and features. Without these necessary Cookies, the Site will not perform as smoothly for you or as we intended and we may not be able to provide the full Site or certain services or features.
Preference CookiesPreference Cookies collect information about your choices and preferences and allow us to remember local settings and customize the Site accordingly.
Social Media CookiesSocial media Cookies are used to enable you to share pages and content you find interesting on our Site through third-party social networking and other websites. These Cookies may also be used for advertising purposes.
Analytics CookiesAnalytics Cookies collect information about your use of the Site and enable us to improve the way it works. For example, Google Analytics Cookies show us which are the most frequently visited pages on the Site and help us record any difficulties you have with the Site. These Cookies allow us to see the overall patterns of usage on the Site, rather than the usage of a single person. We use information from these Cookies to analyze the Site traffic, but we do not examine this information for individually identifying information.
Clear gifsClear gifs (a.k.a web beacons) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Site users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages or in emails and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We use these in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs in emails to our visitors’ Personal Information.
