This Cookie Notice describes the types of cookies and similar tracking technologies we use on our services via our websites and apps, how we use them, and what your choices are for controlling cookies.
Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device by a website via your web browser or mobile app when you visit a website or other online service. Cookies store information about how you use an online service so that the website can recognize your device, provide functionality, enhance your experience (like remembering your preferred language), analyze usage patterns, and personalize content and advertising.
When we say “cookie,” we are talking about similar online tracking tools and technologies, such as web beacons (also called tracking pixels). Like cookies, web beacons allow us to analyze how visitors to our websites use Sfumato and deliver personalized content. Web beacons can also be included in emails we send to determine whether they have been read or acted on. For additional information on cookies, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org
Some examples of how we use this information collected through cookies includes to:
Some of the cookies we use are first-party cookies, which are created by us to help make Sfumato work properly and analyze usage. We also allow certain third-party providers to place third-party cookies to enable third-party features or functionalities or to assist us with our analytics and advertising activities.
The length of time that cookies are stored on your device will vary, depending on whether the cookies are temporary or persistent.
Session cookies. We use temporary cookies called session cookies on our secure pages to assign and register a session ID. This allows you to visit and use our websites and services without interruption, and provides us with internal reporting. These cookies expire when you close your browser.
Persistent cookies. Persistent cookies are used by us and our third-party providers to understand visitors’ browsing behavior over a longer period of time or to provide additional features or customization. They can stay on your device for different lengths of time, from 24 hours, to a week, or several years, depending on their function. These cookies survive after your browser is closed and can be used to recognize your device when you reopen your browser and revisit our websites and apps.
All visitors. There are a number of ways you can manage what cookies are set on your devices. As mentioned above, deleting or disabling cookies may impact your ability to use certain features and functionalities. We currently do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.
Browser settings. You can disable and/or delete most types of cookies by using your browser settings. As the means by which to activate or deactivate cookies varies from one web browser to another (e.g., Safari, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox), you should visit your specific web browser’s help menu for more information on cookie preferences. You can also configure your browser at any time to be notified of the receipt of a cookie, so that you can decide whether you want to accept it or not. Please note that currently, it is technically impossible for you to synchronize your settings across the different browsers and devices you use. You must therefore set them on each browser/device that you currently use and each time you use a new browser or device.
If you choose to deactivate cookies, you may continue to use certain parts of our services and websites. However, some useful features may not work anymore, depending on which cookies you deactivate. For example, you might not be able to use our chat functionality to ask questions, and content may not be as relevant to your preferences.
Please note that if you have disabled one or more cookies, we may continue to use the information that was collected by such cookies before they were deactivated. However, we will cease to collect any new information via the opted-out cookie once a cookie has been deactivated.
