WHAT IS A COOKIE?
WHAT COOKIES DO WE USE?
We use a variety of cookies on the IE-RE Sites for several reasons. We also may use web logs, pixel tags, or web beacons, which are pieces of code that may be used to read and place cookies on a web browser, to collect information about how you interact with websites or advertisements.
The sections below describe the types of cookies most frequently used by IE-RE on the Sites and explain their use.
|__cfduid||This cookie is used to identify individual clients behind a shared IP address and apply security settings on a per-client basis. For example, if a visitor is in a coffee shop where there may be several infected machines, but the specific visitor’s machine is trusted (for example, because they completed a challenge within your Challenge Passage period), the cookie allows our security system to identify that client and not challenge them again. It does not correspond to any user ID in our web application, and does not store any personally identifiable information.|
|in_ca||This indicates you are in California, as inferred from your IP address. California residents are shown an alternate version of the IE-RE including all required notices.|
|optout||This indicates you excercised your right to opt out of “sale” of your information.|
These cookies collect information about how people are using the Sites, for example which pages are visited the most often, how visitors move from one webpage to another, and whether visitors experience any difficulty using the Sites. Overall, these cookies provide us with analytical information about how the Sites are performing and how we can improve it, and in some instances, whether our advertising is effective or not.
