Effective: June 1, 2020

This Cookie Policy explains how Guidesly, Inc. and its affiliates (collectively, “Guidesly,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) collect and process information about you or your device on Guidesly’s websites (the “Guidesly Sites”) through our use of cookies. For information about our other data privacy practices, please visit our Privacy Statement.

By using the Guidesly Sites, you accept the use of cookies in accordance with this Cookie Policy, subject to any choices you make as described below.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that can be stored on and accessed from your device when you visit a website. They may include a unique identifier that distinguishes your computer or mobile device from other devices. In addition to cookies, we may use other technologies to track your use of the Guidesly Sites, such as pixel tags and web beacons. Web beacons are electronic images that are contained within a website. When your browser opens a webpage that contains a web beacon, it automatically connects to the web server that hosts the image (typically hosted by a third-party). This allows that web server to log information about your device and to set and read its own cookies. We also include web beacons in our promotional email messages or newsletters to tell us if you open and act on them.

We use the term “cookies” in this Cookie Policy to refer generally to all of these technologies that may collect information automatically when you visit the Guidesly Sites. Cookies are common, and serve many purposes, such as letting you navigate between webpages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your user experience.

Cookies can be “persistent cookies” that remain on your hard drive until they expire or are deleted, or “session cookies” that are deleted from your hard drive when you close your browser. Cookies can also be “first-party cookies” which are set by us, or “third-party cookies” which are set by others.

We use cookies, web beacons, mobile analytics and advertising IDs, and similar technologies to operate the Guidesly Sites and related online services and to help collect data, including other identifiers and device information and usage data.

For further information on cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your device and how to manage or delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
