Cookies are small bits of data that are stored on your browser or device (personal computer, tablet, mobile phone etc.) that are used to access websites in order to recognize repeat users. There are different types of cookies we use depending on their purpose. Cookies served by the entity that operates the domain you are visiting are called “first-party cookies.” Nerdify uses exactly this type while you are on https://leanwriters.com. Cookies served by companies that are not operating the domain you’re visiting are called “third-party cookies.” It happens, for example, when you allow Google to set a cookie on your browser while you visit https://leanwriters.com, so it is performed by a server located outside the domain of our website. Cookies may also endure for different periods of time. “Session cookies” are temporary and are deleted automatically upon closing the browser. The last type is “persistent cookie” which survives after your browser is closed, but can be deleted manually. They may recognize your device when you reopen your browser and browse the internet again.
Other Identification Technologies
“Pixel tags” (also known as pixels or beacons) are small blocks of code installed on (or called by) a webpage, app, or ad which can access certain information about your device and browser, for example: device type, operating system, browser type and version, website visited, time of visit, referring website, IP address, and other similar information, including the cookie that identifies the device. Pixels provide the means by which third parties can set and read browser cookies from a domain that they do not themselves operate and collect information about visitors of that domain, typically with the permission of the domain owner.
“Local storage” refers generally to other places on a browser or device where information can be stored by websites, ads, or the third parties (such as HTML5 local storage and browser cache).
“Software Development Kits” (also called SDKs) function like pixels and cookies, but operate in the mobile app context where pixels and cookies cannot always function. The primary app developer can install pieces of code (the SDK) from partners in the app, and in such a way allows the partner to acquire certain information about user interaction with the app, user device, and network.
You, as a user, have the right to choose whether to accept cookies or not. However, they are an important part of how our Services work. You should be aware that a refusal to install or removal of cookies may affect the availability and functionality of the Services.
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can change the settings so that the browser removes or rejects cookies. Please, visit the “Help” or “Preferences” menu of your browser for more information on how to manage this option. Some third parties also provide the ability to reject their cookies directly by clicking on an opt-out link. We have indicated in which cases this is possible in the table below.
Removing or rejecting browser cookies does not necessarily affect the third-party flash cookies which may be used by us or our partners in connection with our Services. You can get more information on cookies, check what cookies have been set on your device and how to manage them, here: www.allaboutcookies.org or www.youronlinechoices.eu .
