1. Cookies Overview
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your browser or device by websites, apps, online media, and advertisements. There are different types of cookies. Cookies served by Sharetheload or any other entity that operates the domain you visit are called “first party cookies.” Cookies served by companies outside the visiting domain are called “third party cookies.” Thus, Google may set a cookie on your browser whilst you are visiting www.sharetheload.com. This would be known as a third party cookie. Cookies may vary with time to time such as some may be “session Cookies” only lasting whilst the browser is open. Once the browser or page is closed cookies are automatically deleted. On the other hand, “persistent cookies” survive after your browser is closed and subsequently may recognize your device when you re-open your browser and surf the internet.
2. Other Identification Technologies
2.2 Other technologies used by Sharetheload are the following:
“Pixel tags” also called beacons or pixels are relatively small blocks of codes installed on an application, a website, advertisement which can retrieve certain information about your device and browser, including but not limited to type of device and its operating system, browser and its version, website visits and time of those visits, IP address and location, and other information, including cookies that uniquely identifies the device. Pixel tags provide the means by which third parties can set and read browser cookies from a domain that they do not themselves operate and collect information about visitors to that domain, typically with the permission of the domain owner. “Local storage” generally refers to other places on a browser or device where information can be stored by websites, ads, or third parties such as local storage and/ or cache. “Software Development Kits” (also called SDKs) function like both pixels and cookies, but operate in the context of mobile applications where pixels and cookies cannot always function. In addition, Application Programming Interface function in a similar manner however in the context of websites. The primary app developer can install pieces of code from partners thereby allowing partners to collect certain information about users including but not limited to their interaction and information about them.
