Arklign Cookies and Related Technologies Policy
Last Updated: April 23, 2019
We think it’s important for you to understand how cookies and other related/similar technologies are used by Arklign (“we”, “us”, and “ours”) – for our website (“Site”), mobile application (“App”) and our services (“Services”). These technologies help Arklign function, allow us to understand how you use the Services, identify ways to improve the Services and your experience, manage advertising, and more.
Our automatic data collection includes the use of the following technologies:
Cookies. A “cookie” is a small piece of data that is stored on a visitor’s hard drive in order to store information about visitor preferences and activities on the Site. We use this information to optimize the experiences of our visitors. For instance, a cookie can help us identify you when you return to the Site in order to save you time.
For more information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been saved and how to manage and delete them, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org. If you are located in the European Union you may use the resources at http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/.
Other Technologies. In addition to cookies, we, our service providers, and analytics partners may also use other standard technologies, such as web beacons (sometimes called “clear GIFs”, “web pixels”, or “web bugs”) local storage objects (“LSO”, such as HTML5 and Flash) and scripts. These help provide the functionality described in this policy.
Consent, Contract, and Legitimate Interests in Processing
Certain Cookie Technologies are employed to make the Site function for its intended purpose, and are provided based on contractual necessity based on your agreement with Arklign to perform the Services you have requested. These include the functions strictly necessary to the service noted above. By choosing to use our Services after having been notified of our use of Cookie Technologies in the ways described in this Policy, and, in applicable jurisdictions, through notice and unambiguous acknowledgement of your consent, you agree to such use.
What Cookies Do We Use?
We use various types of cookies on our Site, App, and Services, including:
- Session cookies, which disappear when you log out and close your browser;
- Persistent cookies, which stay on your device until you or your browser deletes them or until they expire;
- First-party cookies, which are associated with the domain you are visiting; and
- Third-party cookies, which are associated with a different domain other than the one you are visiting.
Some cookies are associated with your account. Other cookies are not tied to your account but are set on a browser or device.
- If you’re signed in to your account, cookies help us keep you logged in, show you the right information and personalize your experience.
- Supporting additional features and functionalities. Cookies also support additional features and functionality on our Services, such as supporting video streaming features.
- You may choose to refuse to accept cookies by configuring the appropriate setting on your browser. Each browser is a little different, but usually these settings are under the “options” or “preferences” menu. However, doing so may prevent you from being able to access parts of the Services and may prevent the Services from functioning properly. For more information on managing and deleting cookies, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
- Web beacon tracking can be stopped by removing existing cookies and turning off the acceptance of new cookies in your browser.
- Advertising and Third Party Networks. There are several resources that you can use to learn more about targeted and behavioral advertising or to opt-out of these types of advertising. Visit the Digital Advertising Alliance website, Network Advertising Initiative website, TrustE/TrustArc’s preferences manager, or About Ads website. (If you are located in the European Union click here.)
- Flash LSOs. To learn how to manage privacy and storage settings for Flash cookies click here.
- HTML5 LSOs. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5 LSOs. Please consult the browser’s settings.
- Mobile Opt-out. If you access our App, you may also control interest-based advertising on an iOS or Android device by selecting the “Limit Ad Tracking” option in the privacy section of the Settings App on iOS or via advertising preferences on Android-based devices (usually in the Google Settings app). This will not prevent you from seeing advertisements, but will limit the use of device advertising identifiers to personalize ads based on your interests.
- Application SDKs. The App may include third-party mobile application software development kits (“SDKs”) that provide mobile performance and analytics data, bug reporting features, and APIs to third parties that help provide the Services, collection of information about the app itself, activity in the app, and the device the application is running on, and for marketing and advertising. App SDKs are used in many mobile applications. You can control the data collection of many SDKs through browser or mobile device settings.
- Do Not Track Response. Certain web browsers may allow you to enable a “do not track” option that sends signals to the websites you visit indicating that you do not want your online activities tracked. This is different from blocking cookies as browsers with the “do not track” option selected may still accept cookies. Because we track visitors’ activities over time and across third-party websites, we respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals sent to us from our visitors’ browsers. We also allow third parties to track such activities.
