Cookie & Similar Technology Policy

Effective: October 16, 2018

This policy describes how Loop1 uses cookies and similar technologiesto make your experience better, faster, and safer, for advertising purposes and to allow us to continuously improve our Service.

In this policy, we’ll refer Loop1 Systems, Inc. as (“Loop1”), https://loop1.com/as (“Site”) and the different ways to use our features, and services (together, or individually, the (“Service”), and cookies and similar technologies collectively as (“Cookie Technologies”).

Cookie Technologies

Cookies

Cookies are small data files sent from a server to your web browser. They are stored in your browser’s cache and allow a website or a third-party to recognize your browser. There are four primary types of cookies:

  • Session cookiesare specific to a visit and carry information as you view different pages, so you don’t have to re-enter information every time you change pages or attempt to checkout. Session cookies expire and delete themselves automatically in a short period of time after you leave the Site or when you close your web browser.
  • Persistent cookiesremember certain information about your preferences for viewing the Site and allow Loop1 to recognize you each time you return. Persistent cookies are stored on your browser cache or mobile device until you choose to delete them, and otherwise typically delete themselves at expiration.
  • First-party cookiesare those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time to preserve your settings (e.g., while on our Site).
  • Third-party cookiesare placed by someone other than Loop1 and may gather browsing activity across multiple websites and across multiple sessions. They are usually a type of persistent cookie and are stored until you delete them, or they expire based on the time period set in each third-party cookie.

Other Similar Technologies

In addition to cookies, there may be other similar technologies used by Loop1.

  • Web beaconsare tiny graphics (sometimes called “clear GIFs” or “web pixels”) with a unique identifier that are used to understand browsing activity. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are rendered invisibly on web pages when you open a page. 
  • Social widgetsare buttons or icons provided by third-party social media providers that allow you to interact with those social media services when you view a webpage. These social widgets may collect browsing data, which may be received by the third party that provided the widget and are controlled by the third parties.
  • Similar technologiesare technologies that store information in your browser or device utilizing local shared objects or local storage, such as flash cookies, HTML 5 cookies, and other web application software methods. These technologies can operate across all of your browsers, and in some instances may not be fully managed by your browser and may require management directly through your installed applications or device. We do not use these technologies for storing information to target advertising to you on or off our Site.

Purpose

Our cookies, web beacons and similar technologies serve various purposes, but are generally either necessary or essential to the functioning of our Service, help us improve the performance of or provide you extra functionality of the same, or help us to serve relevant and targeted advertisements.  More generally, Loop1 uses Cookie Technologies for the following reasons:

Strictly Necessary or Essential:

‘Strictly necessary’ or ‘essential’ cookies, web beacons and similar technologies let you move around the Site and use essential features like secure areas and shopping baskets. Without these technologies, the Service you have asked for cannot be provided. Please note that these technologies do not gather any information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you’ve been on the internet. Accepting these technologies is a condition of using our Service, so if you prevent these from loading we can’t guarantee your use or how the security, authentication and logging will perform during your visit.

Performance:  

‘Performance’ cookies, web beacons and similar technologies collect information about how you use our Site e.g. which pages you visit, and if you experience any errors. These cookies do not collect any information that could identify you and is only used to help us improve how our Site works, understand the interests of our users and measure how effective our content is by providing anonymous statistics and data regarding how our website is used.  Accepting these technologies is a condition of using our Site, so if you prevent these from loading we can’t guarantee your use or how the security therein will perform during your visit.

Functionality:

These technologies allow us to understand how useful our advertisements are and improve the relevancy of the content delivered to our users.

We also utilize 3rd party service providers to assist us in delivering on the same functions, which means that our authorized service providers may also place cookies, web beacons and similar technologies on your device via our services (third party cookies). They may also collect information that helps them identify your device, such as IP-address, or other unique or device identifiers.

You have a variety of tools to control cookies, web beacons and similar technologies, including browser controls to block and delete cookies and controls from some third-party analytics service providers to opt-out of data collection through web beacons and similar technologies. Your browser and other choices may impact your experiences with our Service.
