Last Updated October 23, 2018

This cookie policy ("Cookie Policy") describes the cookies and other technologies that Scalable Path, Inc. ("Scalable Path" or "we") uses on its website (the "Site") and the choices that you have. This Cookie Policy forms part of our Privacy Policy. As used in this Cookie Policy, "Cookies" refer to the tracking technologies including cookies, which we describe to you below.

You do not have to accept Cookies and you can control whether most Cookies are used when you visit the Site. You can change your browser settings to refuse or restrict Cookies, and you may delete most of them after they have been installed. If you do not accept or if you delete these Cookies, some areas of the Site that you access may take more time to work or may not function properly.

When you first visit the Site, you will be asked to consent to the use Cookies on the Site in accordance with this Cookie Policy, and if you accept we will store them on your computer or otherwise use them in connection with your visit to the Site.

What Cookies do we use?

Included in the Cookies we use are actual “cookies: which are small amounts of information that we may store on your local computer or mobile device when you visit the Site. When you visit the Site again, the cookies allow us to recognize your browser. Cookies may store your preferences and other information but cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites.

Cookies also include other technologies to recognize and track visitors to the Site. A web beacon (also known as a “tracking pixel” or “clear GIF”) is a clear graphic image (typically a one-pixel tag) that is delivered through a web browser or HTML e-mail, typically in conjunction with a cookie. Web beacons allows us, for example, to monitor how users move from one page within the Site to another, to track access to our communications, to understand whether users have come to the Site from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to measure how ads have been viewed and to improve Site performance.

We also use pixel tags (usually in combination with cookies), from the third parties described below, to get information about your usage of the Site and our services and your interaction with email or other communications. Pixel tags are a technology similar to cookies that can be embedded in online content or within the body of an email for the purpose of tracking activity on websites (for example, to know when content has been shown to you), or to know when you have viewed particular content or a particular email message.

Cookies can be stored on your computer for different periods of time. “Session cookies” only last for as long as the browser session and are deleted automatically once you close your browser. “Persistent cookies” cookies survive after your browser is closed until a defined expiration date set in the cookie (as determined by the third party placing it), and help recognize your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again. The Site uses first party Cookies (Cookies set directly by Scalable Path) as well as third-party Cookies, as described below.

Cookies make the use of the Site easier by, among other things, saving your preferences. We may also use Cookies to deliver content tailored to your interests. Our Cookies may enable us to relate your use of the Site to personal information that you previously provided.

The information that we collect with Cookies allows us to statistically analyze usage of the Site, and to improve and customize our content and other offerings. However, we only disclose information collected with Cookies to third parties on an aggregated basis without the use of any information that personally identifies you.

As is typical for website owners, Scalable Path categorizes Cookies as either "Strictly Necessary", "Analytics/Performance", "Advertising/Targeting", and "Functionality". As indicated above, these Cookies originate from either Scalable Path or third parties with which Scalable Path contracts.
