What are Cookies and Similar Technologies?
Cookies are small files—usually consisting of letters and numbers—placed on your computer, tablet, phone, or similar device, when you use that device to visit a web site. Cookies are widely used by web site owners to make their web sites operate, work more efficiently, and provide analytic information.
These are the different types of Cookies we and our service providers may use on our Sites:
How does Big Cloud Collect and Use Other Information?
How Long do Cookies Stay on My Device?
Certain Cookies operate from the time you visit a Big Cloud service 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. We and others use persistent Cookies for a variety of purposes, such as to store your preferences so that they are available for the next visit, and to keep a more accurate account of how often you visit our Sites, how often you return, how your use of the Sites may vary over time, and the effectiveness of advertising efforts.
Who Puts the Cookies on My Device?
Cookies may be placed on your device by Big Cloud as the Site operator. These Cookies are called “first party” Cookies. Some Cookies may be placed on your device by a party other than Big Cloud. These Cookies are called “third party” Cookies. For example, a Big Cloud partner may place a third party Cookie to enable online chat services.
Cookies may also be used that allow us and third parties to know when you visit our Sites, and to understand how you interact with e-mails, advertisements, or other content. Through Cookies, aggregate and other information not identifying individual users (such as your operating system, browser version, and the URL you came from, including from e-mails and advertisements) may be obtained and used to enhance your experience and understand traffic patterns. This technology counts the number of users who visit a particular service from specific banner advertisements outside the Big Cloud Site or who clicked on links or graphics included in e-mail newsletters received from Big Cloud. It is also used as a tool to compile aggregated statistics about how Big Cloud Sites are used, to perform analytics and help us to optimize our Sites, and to help serve you advertising based on your interests, as described in further detail below.
How does Big Cloud Use Online and Mobile Advertising?
We do not currently do online or mobile advertising as part of our services.
