What Cookies Do We Use?
Below we list the different types of cookies that may be used on the TechValidate Site.
The TechValidate Site uses both 1st party cookies (which are set by the TechValidate Site being visited) and 3rd party cookies (which are set by a server located outside the domain of the TechValidate Site).
1. Required or Essential Cookies
2. Functionality and Preference Cookies
These cookies are used to enable certain additional functionality on our websites, such as storing your preferences (e.g. name and company info) and preventing users from taking the same survey multiple times. This functionality improves user experience. (Example cookie names: visitor_first_name, visitor_last_name)
3. Social Media Cookies.
Social media cookies collect information about social media usage. (Example cookie names: c_user, guest_id, csm)
5. Analytics Cookies.
Analytics cookies collect information about your use of the TechValidate Site, and enable us to improve the way it works. For example, analytics cookies show us which are the most frequently visited pages on the TechValidate Site, help us record any difficulties you have with the TechValidate Site, and show us whether our advertising is effective or not. This allows us to see the overall patterns of usage on the TechValidate Site, rather than the usage of a single person. We use the information to analyse the TechValidate Site traffic, but we do not examine this information for individually identifying information. (Example cookie names: __utma, __utmb, __utmc, __utmz)
6. Targeting or advertising cookies
(Example cookie names: _jsuid, cid5664bid, mkto_trk)
