Cookies and Related Technologies
Cookies are small data files that are stored on your computer that allow us and our third-party partners and providers to collect certain information about your interactions with our email communications, websites, apps, and other online services. There are two general types of cookies:
- Session cookies: A session cookie typically disappears after you close your mobile application or browser.
- Persistent cookies: A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may collect or transmit information every time you use the Via Services until it is manually cleared or reaches its expiration date. We use persistent cookies when we need to know who you are for more than one session (e.g., to remember your preferences for the next time you use the Via Services).
We and our third-party service providers and business partners may use both session and persistent cookies and other, related technologies to collect this information, such as web beacons, pixels, embedded scripts, software development kits (“SDKs”), and location-identifying technologies and logging technologies (collectively, we refer to these technologies as “cookies”).
What We Collect When Using Cookies
Our third-party service providers and business partners may also directly collect personal information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you use our websites and online services. For example, we may share, or we may permit third-party services to collect information about your use of the Via Services over time so that they may deliver content, including ads, that may be relevant to your interests on in the Via Services, on other websites or apps (including social media platforms), or on other devices you may use.
Social media platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook, Google, and others, have interest-based advertising programs that allow us to direct advertisements to users who have shown interest in the Via Services while those users are on the social media platform, or to groups of other users who share similar traits, such as likely commercial interests and demographics. These advertisements are governed by the privacy policies of those social media companies that provide them.
We use Google Analytics for both analytics and advertising purposes. Some of the advanced advertising features provided by Google Analytics enable us to use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick advertising cookie) or other third-party cookies together to inform, optimize, and display ads based on your past visits to the Via Services. You can find out more information about how Google uses your data when you use its partners’ sites here, and more information about Google’s data practices here.
