What Is a cookie?
A cookie is a data file, which often includes a unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a website or its provider and is then stored on your device’s hard drive that enables the website’s or provider’s system to recognize your browser and remember certain information held in that cookie.
The length of time a cookie will stay on your browsing device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies stay on your browsing device until they expire or are deleted.
So-called “first party cookies” are cookies which are served by the entity operating the domain through which the cookie is served. Halara’s own cookies are therefore “first-party cookies”. In case we allow others to service cookies through the Halara websites and apps, these cookies are so-called “third-party cookies”.
What Other Similar Tracking Technologies We Use
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track users of our Services. We may use other similar technologies from time to time. These technologies can include web beacons (also known as pixel tags, web bugs or gifs), Java scripts, entity tags, or HTML 5 local storage. A web beacon is a tiny graphic image of just one pixel that can be delivered to your computer as part of a web page request, in an app, in an advertisement or in an HTML email message. Pixels can be used to retrieve information from your device, such as your device type or operating system, IP address, and time of visit. They are also used to serve and read cookies in your browser. This information is in particular used to evaluate and enhance how our Site functions, to improve your experience on our Site, including to provide you with content customized to your interests. Java scripts, which are code snippets embedded in various parts of websites and applications that facilitate a variety of operations including accelerating the refresh speed of certain functionality or monitoring usage of various online components. Entity tags, which are HTTP code mechanisms that allow portions of websites to be stored or “cached” within your browser to accelerate website performance. HTML5 local storage, which allows data from websites to be stored or “cached” within your browser to store and retrieve data in HTML5 pages when the website is revisited.
We and our service providers and third parties we collaborate with, including ad networks, may use cross-device/cross-context tracking. For example, you might use multiple browsers on a single device, or use various devices (such as desktops, smartphones, and tablets), which can result in your having multiple accounts or profiles across these various contexts and devices. Cross-device/cross-context technology may be used to connect these various accounts or profiles and the corresponding data from the different contexts and devices.
We use first party and third-party cookies to recognize you as a Halara customer, customize our content, and advertising, to measure promotional effectiveness, and to collect information about your computer or other access device to mitigate risk, help prevent fraud, and promote trust and safety.
The following are some examples of information that we collect and how we may use it:
We may collect and store details of how you use our Services. Except in limited instances to ensure quality of our services over the Internet, such information will not be associated with your IP address.
We may collect information such as your language, inferred zip code or area code, unique device identifier, referrer URL, location, and time zone so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our services.
What Types Of Cookies Do We Use
We may use the following types of cookies on the Services:
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These are cookies that are required for the operation of a website and therefore disabling these cookies may make our services unavailable. Examples are cookies used for online shopping carts or to access secure areas on our Site. These cookies do not gather information about you for marketing purposes.
These cookies are used to recognize you when you return to our Services. They remember user choices and enable the personalization of content. These cookies allow us to remember choices you make (such as your username, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personalized features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customize. While these cookies can be disabled, this may result in less functionality during your use of our Site.
These cookies track information about your visits to the Services so that we can make improvements and report on performance. These cookies collect information about how visitors use the Services, which site or page the user came from, the number of each user’s visits and how long a user stays on the Services. We may also use analytics cookies to test new features to see how users react to them.
Your Privacy Options
Opting out of Third Party Analytics
. We may use third-party service providers to monitor and analyze the use of our online, web-based, and mobile-based Services, such as Google Analytics. Google Analytics is an analytics service offered by Google LLC (“Google”) that tracks and reports website traffic. For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en
. To opt out of Google Analytics or to prevent your data from being collected and used by Google Analytics, please visit: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
Do Not Track Signals. Currently, we do not monitor or take any action with respect to Do Not Track signals or other mechanisms, which means that we collect information about your online activity both while you are using the Services and after you leave our Services.
Disabling Most Interest Based Advertising
. Many advertising companies that collect information for interest-based advertising are members of the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) or the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI), both of which maintain websites where people can opt out of interest-based advertising from their members. To opt out of website interest-based advertising provided by each organization’s respective participating companies, visit the DAA’s opt-out portal available at http://optout.aboutads.info/
, or visit the NAI’s opt-out portal available at http://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1
. Residents of the European Union may opt-out of online behavioral advertising served by the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance’s participating member organizations by visiting https://www.youronlinechoices.eu/
. Please note, to disable advertising cookies, some third parties may need to set an opt-out cookie on your device. Sometimes a device’s configuration may prevent such third parties from setting such cookies, for example, if your device is set to block all third party cookies by default. This means that you may need to change your device settings to accept cookies to fully disable advertising cookies.
Mobile App Advertising. When you use our mobile application, we or our marketing partners may use one or more of several different identifiers for your mobile device, including Apple Identifier For Advertising (IDFA) or Android Advertising ID (AAID), to target and deliver ads to you in our app or other apps. This means that your device identifier may be accessed by third-party ad networks and used to (a) help manage the number and types of ads you see; (b) track the source of installs related to ads seen in other apps; and (c) identify your interests and behavior and target advertising to you based on those interests and behavior.
Apple requires app developers to ask for permission before they can track your activity across apps or websites they do not own in order to target advertising to you, measure your actions due to advertising, or to share your information with data brokers. If you previously gave our mobile app permission to track, you can tell our app to stop tracking your activity. On iOS or IPadOS, go to Settings, tap on our app, then tap to turn off Allow Tracking. You can also reset your IDFA from your mobile device’s settings page, which will prevent continued use of existing behavioral data tied to your previous IDFA.
If you have an Android device, and are running Android 12 or above, you can delete your AAID permanently by opening Settings, navigating to Privacy > Ads, tapping “Delete advertising ID,” then tapping it again on the next page to confirm. This will prevent any app on your phone from accessing it in the future. Please note that if you do so, you will still see advertisements, but they will not be tailored to your inferred interests.
You may also access industry-provided opt-out tools, although they are not tailored to our mobile applications. For instance, to opt-out of data collection by the Digital Advertising Alliance’s participating member companies for interest-based advertising across mobile applications, download the DAA’s App Choices mobile application opt-out offering at https://youradchoices.com/appchoices
