What are cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a site and allow a site to recognize your device.
Cookies do a lot of different jobs, such as letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and generally improving the user experience. Some companies employ cookies to ensure that the advertisements you see online are more relevant to you and your interests
We may use information collected from our cookies to identify user behaviour and traffic sources into our public websites. We do this only to the extent legally permissible in certain jurisdictions. Some of the cookies we use don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. For example –
- Performance cookies (see below)
- User behaviour cookies deployed across any online products
In other cases, we can associate cookie information with an identifiable individual. For example –
- Automatic emails delivered to you as part of our product offering (in-application emails) to enable us to track the information delivered and maintain the security of information
- If we send you a targeted email which includes web beacons, cookies or similar technologies we will know whether you open, read, or delete the message
When you click a link in a marketing e-mail you receive from Streamline, we will also use a cookie to log what pages you view and what content you download from our websites, even if you are not registered at or signed into our site
