This Cookie Policy is for Trudell’s worldwide websites, our affiliated websites and any websites or marketing applications operated by or on behalf of Trudell (collectively the “Site”).

This Cookie Policy, together with the cookie section in our Website Privacy Policy sets out our use of cookies and other similar technologies on our Sites. It should be read in conjunction with our Website Privacy Policy.

Cookies

Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored on your computer, mobile phone or other device when you first visit a page. We use cookies, web beacons, flash cookies, mobile identifiers and similar technologies (“Cookies”) to help us recognize you on our Site, enhance your user experience, and understand usage of the Site. First party cookies are set by the Trudell websites and third-party Cookies are set by services we use for features and functionality on our site (e.g. Personalization and Analytics). Third-party Cookies are not controlled by Trudell and their specific policies can be found at their respective sites.

What Types of Cookies Do We Use?

We use two types of Cookies of the Site: “session cookies” and “persistent cookies”. Session cookies are temporary Cookies that remain on your device until you leave the Site. A persistent Cookie remains on your device for much longer until you manually delete it. How long the Cookie remains will depend of the duration or lifetime of the specific Cookie and your browser settings.

What are Cookies Used For?

Cookies transmit information about you and your use of the Site, such as your browser type, search preferences and the date and time of your use.

We use Cookies for things like:

Purpose Explanation
Authentication We use Cookies to help us determine whether or not you’ve signed into the Site and to keep you signed in during visits as you access different pages.
Security We use Cookies to enable and support security features, prevent fraud, and protect your data from unauthorized access.
Preferences and Features We use Cookies to enable features and help us to provide you with personalized content.
Analytics and Performance We use Cookies to analyze how our visitors use the Site and to monitor performance of the Site. These Cookies help us to identify and fix errors, understand and improve services, research and test different features and monitor how our visitors reach our sites.

 

Ad Choices and Managing Cookies

We work with several third parties to provide you with personalized, interest-based advertising. We may target ads to you, and measure their performance, on and off the Site using:

  • Your use of the Site (e.g., search history, page clicks, companies you follow);
  • IP address or mobile device location information (to the extent you have enabled location tracking on your device);
  • Cookies (both on and off the Site) which may include information from the Ad Partners we use to help deliver relevant ads to you.

How We Work with Third-Party Ad Partners

When we work with our Ad Partners to serve you personalized, interest-based advertising, we do not share information with them that they can use to identify you or associate with you as a specific individual. Similarly, if one of these Ad Partners have information about you saved in one of their own Cookies on your browser, they use that information to help us send you a relevant ad, but they do not share with us information that we can associate with you as an individual.

We work with third parties, such as Google Analytics, to provide analytics services that use the Cookies set on your device to measure the performance of advertising and track traffic to our Site. We have also implemented Google Analytics, which categorizes Cookie information so that we and third-party service providers can better deliver advertisements that are relevant and useful to you on the Site and various websites across the internet.

Opting Out of Cookies

We use Cookies that are necessary for us to provide the services you use and you cannot opt out of these Cookies on the Site. You are able to disable placement of some (but not all) Cookies by setting your browser to decline cookies, though this may inhibit your user experience. Additionally, you can also control, manage and/or delete cookies via your browser settings. A useful resource for information about deleting and controlling cookies can be found at AboutCookies.org.

Ad Partner Cookies

Here are some options for managing the third-party Cookies used by our Ad Partners:

You can opt out of tracking by Google Analytics and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting services by visiting Google Ads Settings or by downloading the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on.

Please note: If ads or other features on the Site are provided by third parties, those parties set and use their own Cookies that are subject to those third parties' privacy notices and policies. Trudell does not have access to, or control over, these Cookies. If you respond to ads posted by third parties or submit information to third parties via the Site, such third parties receive information about you subject to their privacy policies.
