What are Cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are automatically downloaded to your computer or device when you visit a website. Cookies send data back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or share data with other websites that recognize that cookie.
Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize a user's device over time. They can be used for lots of different activities, such as letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, personalizing your online experience, and generally improving the user experience. They can also help to ensure that the advertisements you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
Types of Cookies we use
There are five different types of Cookies we use:
How long do Cookies stay on my device?
Some Cookies operate from the time you visit a Blend360 website or to the end of that particular web-browsing session. These Cookies expire and are automatically deleted when you close your internet browser. These Cookies are called "session" Cookies. Some Cookies will stay on your device between browsing sessions -- they do not expire when you close your browser. These Cookies are called "persistent" Cookies. The length of time a persistent cookie stays on your device varies from cookie to cookie.
Third party Cookies
Google Analytics helps us analyze how our Services are used. Google Analytics uses performance Cookies to track visitor interactions. For example, by using Cookies, Google can tell us which pages our users view, which are most popular, what time of day our websites are visited, whether visitors have been to our websites before, what website referred the visitor to our websites, and other similar information.
We have little control over these 'third party' Cookies, so we suggest that you check the respective privacy policies for these external services to help you understand what data these organizations hold about you and what they do with it.
How to control which Cookies are set
There are a number of ways you can manage what Cookies are set on your devices. As explained above, however, Strictly Necessary Cookies, cannot be disabled. If you block certain Cookies, the Services may not be accessible to you and/or the performance, features, or Services may not function in their intended way.
Your Cookies Choices
All cookies: You can exercise your preference to receive all types of Cookies by using Blend360's cookie management tool available Here.
You can also manage cookies from your web browser. As the means by which to activate or deactivate Cookies varies from one web browser to another, you should visit your 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. Cookies do not under any circumstances read the data from your hard drive and you can delete them from your computer at any time. At the moment, it is technically impossible for you to synchronize your settings between your browsers and your devices (your computer or your smartphone). You must set them on each browser/device that you currently use and each time you use a new browser or device.
Targeting cookies: If you are interested in more information about tailored online advertising and how you can generally control Cookies from being put on your computer to deliver tailored advertising, you may visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out link, the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Consumer Opt-Out link, or Your Online Choices to opt-out of receiving tailored advertising from companies that participate in those programs.
