Cookie Policy

Last Updated: May 25, 2018

Our website uses cookies, in combination with pixels, local storage objects and similar devices (collectively, “cookies” unless otherwise noted), to distinguish you from other users of the website. This helps us provide you with a good experience, improve our service, and to personalize ads and content to you while you use the website.

This cookie policy (“Cookie Policy”) describes the types of cookies we use on the website and our purposes for using them.

If you have questions about this Cookie Policy, please contact us at privacy@global.crawco.com. For more information about our privacy practices, please review our privacy policy.

Your Consent

You consent to placement of cookies on your browser by us and our third party service providers. Please read this Cookie Policy carefully for details about why we use cookies and the information they collect from and about you.

Withdraw Your Consent at Any Time

If you do not wish to accept cookies in connection with your use of the website, you will need to delete and block or disable cookies via your browser settings; see below for more information on how to do this. Please note that disabling cookies will affect the functionality of the website, and may prevent you from being able to access certain features on the website.

What Is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your device. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon as you visit the website.

Key Concepts

First- and third-party cookies: whether a cookie is 'first' or 'third' party refers to the domain placing the cookie.

  • First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g., cookies placed by our website domain).
  • Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.

Persistent cookies: these cookies remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.

Session cookies: these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

How to Delete and Block our Cookies

Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including strictly necessary cookies), you may not be able to access all or parts of the website. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon as you visit the website.

Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on your activity for us and third parties who help operate and provide services related to the website. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
