What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files containing a string of characters that can be placed on your computer or mobile device that uniquely identify your browser or device.

Cookies allow a site or services to know if your computer or device has visited that site or service before. Cookies can then be used to help understand how the site or service is being used, help you navigate between pages efficiently, help remember your preferences, and generally improve your experience. Cookies can also help ensure marketing you see online is more relevant to you and your interests. These technologies are also used by almost all online services to detect whether the online service has already been called up with the same device and browser in order to adapt the content displayed.

What types of cookies does It'sPing use?

Below we list the different types of cookies that may be used on our Services. Our Services use both 1st party cookies (which are set by the Services being visited) and 3rd party cookies (which are set by a server located outside the domain of our Services). We periodically update this Policy to provide more information on the cookies used on each of our Websites, so there may be additional cookies or information not currently included in our list.

There are generally four categories of cookies: “Necessary,” “Functionality,” “Analytics,” and “Targeting.” it’sPing uses Necessary, Functional, and Analytics cookies only.

  1. Required or essential cookies
  2. These cookies are essential, as they enable you to move around the Service and use its features, such as accessing logged in or secure areas.

  3. Functionality and preference cookies
  4. These cookies allow us to remember how you’re logged in and allow us to remember local settings when using our Services. The information these cookies collect are anonymous, and they are not used to track your browsing activity on other sites or services.

  5. Analytics cookies
  6. Analytical cookies are used to collect information about the use of our Services. These types of cookies help us to further improve our Services, inform us about our users' behaviour and help us to identify and eliminate any difficulties or errors in using our Services. This allows us to see the overall patterns of usage on our Services, rather than the usage of a single person. Analytics cookies may also transfer analytics information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process analytics information on our behalf. Each analytics service’s ability to use and share analytics information is restricted by such analytics service’s terms of use and privacy policy.

  7. Targeting or advertising cookies
  8. Advertising partners or other third party partners may use these types of cookies to deliver advertising that is relevant to your interests. These cookies can remember that your device has visited a site or service, and may also be able to track your device’s browsing activity on other sites or services other than our Services. This information may be shared with organizations outside of it’sPing, such as advertisers and/or advertising networks to deliver the advertising, and to help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign, or other business partners for the purpose of providing aggregate Service usage statistics and aggregate Service testing.

What are first-party and third-party cookies?

First-party cookies are cookies that belong to it’sPing, third-party cookies are cookies that another party places on your device through our Service. Third-party cookies may be placed on your device by someone providing a service for it’sPing (including, for example, Google Analytics, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.
