Cookies placed by the website you’re visiting are sometimes called “first party cookies,” while cookies placed by other companies are sometimes called “third party cookies.”
What cookies are used when I use the StreamerCloud Service?
When you use the StreamerCloud Service or visit a webpage with a StreamerCloud video, StreamerCloud or a third party may place a number of cookies in your browser. Some of the cookies will only be used if you use certain features or select certain preferences, and some cookies will always be used. You can find out more about each cookie by viewing our current cookie list. We update this list quarterly, so there may be additional cookies that aren’t yet listed.
StreamerCloud is not responible for any third party cookie and any issues or concrns which occur because of such cookie.
Each cookie possibly serves one (or all) of the following purposes
These first party cookies allow you to use a feature of the StreamerCloud Service, such as:
- Staying logged in
- Viewing a private video or album
- Watching videos in Couch mode
- Making purchases
These cookies track information about how the StreamerCloud Service is being used so that we can make improvements and report our performance. We might also use analytics cookies to test new website features ads, pages, or features to see how clients react to them. Analytics cookies may either be first party cookies or third party cookies.
A first party cookies stores your StreamerCloud Service preferences, such as:
- Language preference
- Volume preference
- HD mode preference
Ad targeting cookies
These third party cookies are placed by advertising platforms or networks in order to:
Delivering our ads and track ad performance
Enable advertising networks to deliver ads that may be relevant to you based upon your activities (this is sometimes called “behavioral” or “targeted” advertising)
Does StreamerCloud use other tracking technologies or services?
We use additional technologies to help track user activities and preferences. For example, we use web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags or web bugs). Web beacons are tiny graphics (about the size of period) with a unique identifier that are embedded invisibly on web pages or emails. They are used to track user activities and communicate with cookies. You cannot opt out of web beacons used in webpages, but you can limit their use by opting out of the cookies they interact with. You can opt out of web beacons used in emails by setting your email client to render emails in text mode only. Finally, we use local storage to facilitate certain functions, but we do not retain the data captured via local storage.
