What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a certain webpage. Cookies are then sent back to the originating webpage on each subsequent visit, or to another webpage that recognizes that cookie. Cookies are widely used by online service providers in order to make their website or service work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the Website.
Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. Cookies may tell us, for example, whether you have visited the Website before or whether you are a new visitor.
There are two broad categories of cookies:
- First party cookies – cookies set directly by DigitalOcto to your computer or mobile device.
- Third party cookies, which are served by a third party on our behalf. We use third- party cookies for functionality, performance / analytics, advertising and social media purposes.
Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. “Session cookies” exist only while your browser is open and they are deleted automatically once you close your browser. “Permanent cookies” survive after your browser is closed. Permanent cookies can be used by the Website to recognize your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.
We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites and Services to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies enable us and the third parties we work with to track and target the interests of visitors to our Websites, track traffic flow and patterns of travel in connection with the Website and Service and we refer to these as “performance” or “functionality” cookies.
We use pixel tags in combination with cookies. A pixel tag is a type of technology which is placed on a website or within an email and used for the purpose of tracking activity on a website. We use information collected from pixel tags, along with information collected from cookies, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services.
Finally, third parties serve cookies through our Websites and Services for advertising, analytics, and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.
