5. Cookie Policy

At Canalytics, we believe in being clear and open about how we collect and use data related to you. This Policy provides detailed information about how and when we use cookies.

5.1 What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables Canalytics features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to Canalytics, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device.

5.2 How do we use cookies?

Canalytics uses cookies and similar technologies like single-pixel gifs and web beacons. We use both session-based and persistent cookies. Canalytics sets and accesses our own cookies on the domains operated by Canalytics and its corporate affiliates. In addition, we use third-party cookies, like Google Analytics.

5.3 What types of cookies do we use?

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 Canalytics or interact with our Services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by Canalytics when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our Services. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).

5.4 Controlling cookies

Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information.

5.5 Questions?
