Cookies are files that are placed on the device or user's browser by online media, websites, apps, advertisements, and apps. Cookies are of different types. ‘First Party Cookies’ are the ones that the operator of the domain serves the user/ individual when he/ she visits the website. So, first-party cookies in Inayssa are the ones served to the user whilst they are on the Inayssa platform. ‘Third Party Cookies’ are cookies served by companies that are not operating the domain the user/ individual is visiting. For eg., we may allow Facebook to set a cookie on the user's browser while the user/ individual visits the Inayssa Platform, and that cookie placed would be a third party cookie.
Cookies sometimes endure for different/ longer periods of time.
- Cookies that only last longer as the user’s browser is open are termed as “Session Cookies”. These are deleted automatically once the user/ individual closes the user's browser.
- “Persistent Cookies” are cookies that survive even after the user browser is closed. For example, they may recognize the user's device when the user/ individual browses the internet again by re-opening his/ her browser and browsing the internet again.
“Pixel tags” (also called ‘pixels’ or ‘beacons’) are small code blocks installed on (or called by) an app, advertisement or, web page which can retrieve certain information about the browser and device of the user, that includes device type, website visited, browser type and version, referring website, operating system, IP address, and other similar information, that includes a small text file (the cookie) which uniquely identifies the device. After obtaining permission from the domain owner, pixels provide the third party with means that can set and read browser cookies from a domain that they do not operate by themselves and collect relevant information about the visitors to that domain.
Local storage is a technology that allows an application or website to store information on the user's device locally. “Software Development Kits” (also called SDKs) function like cookies and pixels but operate in the mobile app context where cookies and pixels cannot always function. Pieces of code (the SDK) from partners in the app is installed by the primary app developer and installed code allows the partner to collect certain information about the user device and network information, and about user interaction with the app and user’s device and network information.Why do we use these technologies?
