What Are Cookies, Pixels and Local Storage?
Pixel tags (also known as web beacons or pixels) are small blocks of code on a web page or in an email notification. Pixels allow companies to collect information such as an individual’s IP address, when the individual viewed the pixel and the type of browser used. We use pixel tags to understand whether you’ve interacted with content on our Site, which helps us measure and improve our Site and Services, and personalize your experience.
Local storage allows a website to store information locally on your computer or mobile device. Local storage is mainly used to store and retrieve data in HTML pages from the same domain. We use local storage to customize what we show you based on your past interactions with our Platform.
It is important to understand that cookies (and the technologies listed above) may collect personal information, but in some instances only collect non-identifiable information.
Note that when we refer to cookies below, this also includes pixel tags and other technologies described above.
We use both 1st party cookies (which are set by AvidThink) and 3rd party cookies (which are set by a server located outside the domain of our Site). Some of the cookies that we use are “strictly necessary” in that they are essential to the Site. Without them, the Site will not work. Other cookies, while not essential, help us improve our Platform or measure audiences. This is described in more detail below.
