Cookie Policy

This Cookie Policy explains how Digital Reputation and our affiliates use cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our Websites (“the Site”) and when you use our Services (“the Service”), including our associated mobile applications (“Mobile Apps”) owned and controlled by Digital Reputation. It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.

Definition of Cookies

A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. When you visit the site again, the cookie allows that site to recognize your browser. Cookies may store user preferences and other information.

Cookies provide a convenience feature to save you time or tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page.

For example, if you personalize pages on the Website, or register for the Service, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to the same website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the customized features.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Digital Reputation) are called “first-party cookies“.

Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third-party cookies“. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the Website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Reasons for using Cookies

We use first-party and third-party cookies for several reasons:

    • Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for the Website to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies.
    • Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on the Website and the Service. For example, Digital Reputation keeps track of the Websites and pages you visit within Digital Reputation, in order to determine what portion of the Website or the Service is the most popular or most used. This data is used to deliver customized content and promotions within the Website and the Service to customers whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
    • Third parties serve cookies through the Website for advertising, analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.

Types of Cookies and their Usage

The specific types of first and third-party cookies served through the Website and the purposes they perform. These cookies include:

Performance and functionality cookies

These cookies are used to enhance the performance and functionality of the Website, the Service and Mobile Apps but are non-essential to their use. However, without these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable.

Analytics and customization cookies

These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how the Website, the Service and Mobile Apps are being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customize the Website for you.

Advertising cookies

These cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you. They perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are properly displayed for advertisers, and in some cases selecting advertisements that are based on your interests.

Definition of Web Beacons

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website.

We employ a software technology called “Clear gifs” (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage the Website and the Service by informing us what content is effective. “Clear gifs” are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users.

In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, “Clear gifs” are embedded invisibly on Web pages or in emails and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We use “Clear gifs” or pixels in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. We tie the information gathered by “Clear gifs” in emails to our customers’ Personal Information.

Definition of Flash Cookies

The Adobe Flash Player (and similar applications) use technology to remember settings, preferences and usage similar to browser cookies but these are managed through a different interface than the one provided by your Web browser.

This technology creates locally stored objects that are often referred to as “Flash cookies.” Digital Reputation does not use Flash cookies. However, our customers of our software platform may create pages on the Digital Reputation platform that employ “Adobe Flash cookies”.

Digital Reputation does not have access or control over our customers’ Flash cookies, but you may access your Flash management tools from Adobe’s web site directly here:

Similarly, our customers may create pages using the Service that use technology from tracking utility companies, such as cookies and web beacons. The use of these technologies by our customers is not covered by our Cookie Policy or Privacy Notice. We do not have control over third-party cookies or trackers our customers use.

Target Advertising

Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through the Website. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in.

They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be accomplished by them using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you.

The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other personally identifying details unless you choose to provide these.

Cookie Policy Update

We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons.

Please therefore re-visit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.

The date at the bottom of this Cookie Policy indicates when it was last updated.
