What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files sent from a website and stored on a user’s web browser. Cookies are useful for many tasks, such as notifying a website of the user’s previous activity, notifying the website that the user has logged into the website, or even remembering the user’s location to provide location-specific services. Cookies do not harm your computer in any way, and some are automatically deleted after a certain period of time, such as six months.

There are four general categories of cookies that are used on websites:

Strictly necessary (or essential) cookies. These cookies are essential to enable you to move around a website and use its features, such as services you have asked for. Without these cookies, those services would not be available to you. This includes, for example, browsing as a registered user, accessing secure areas of the site, or using a website’s shopping cart feature.

Performance cookies. These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how the website works.

Functionality cookies. These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. This allows you to have a better experience while using the site. The information these cookies collect may be anonymized and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Targeting or advertising cookies. These cookies collect information about your browsing habits to make advertising relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organizations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organization.

Does 360insights permit third parties to install cookies or similar web technologies on its websites?

However, on some of our websites, such as our social networking pages, it is possible that individuals have uploaded third party content, such as videos from YouTube or elsewhere, or embedded content and sharing tools from other third-party sites.
