What are cookies?
Cookies are small data and/or text files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website and allow the website to recognize your computer or mobile device. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Subvrsive, Inc.) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the Website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer or mobile device both when it visits the Website and also when it visits certain other websites.
We use first and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for the Website to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies collect information about how you use the Website — for instance, which pages you go to most. Cookies can also help to ensure that the advertisements you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. This data may be used to help optimize the Website and make them easier for you to navigate. See more below in “How can I control cookies?” below.

In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com.
- Essential website cookies: These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through the Website and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas.
- Analytics and customization cookies: These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how the Website is being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customize the Website for you.
- Advertising cookies: If applicable, these cookies would be used to make advertising messages more relevant to you. They perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are properly displayed for advertisers, and in some cases selecting advertisements that are based on your interests.
- Social networking cookies: These cookies are used to enable you to share pages and content that you find interesting on the Website through third party social networking and other websites. These cookies may also be used for advertising purposes.
What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited the Website, in our newsletter, affiliated websites, to determine whether messages have been opened and links clicked on. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects?
Websites may also use so-called “Flash Cookies” (also known as Local Shared Objects or “LSOs”) to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our services, fraud prevention and for other site operations.
If you do not want Flash Cookies stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash Cookies storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash Cookies (referred to “information” on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash Cookies that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time).
Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our services or online content.
