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.
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.
