Acertitude, LLC and our affiliates (“Acertitude,” “we,” “us”, “our”) take the privacy and security of your information seriously.  This Cookies + Similar Technologies Policy (“CST Policy”) describes the different types of cookies and similar technologies that are used on the site where this policy appears (“Site”). We may change this CST Policy at any time. Please see the “Last update” note at the end of this policy to see when this CST Policy was last revised. Any changes in this CST Policy will become effective when we make the revised CST Policy available on or through the Site.

What are cookies + similar technologies?

Cookies are a standard feature of websites that allow us to store small amounts of data on your computer about your visit to the Site. We use “cookies” — that is, small text files placed on a visitor’s computer hard drive — and other technologies to help us determine information such as the type of content to which a visitor to the Site links, and the length of time each visitor spends at any particular area of the Site. Our cookies are only read by our servers and are unable to execute any code or virus. We and our service providers use the information for security purposes, to facilitate navigation, display information more effectively, and to personalize your experience while using the Site, as well as for tracking purposes. We also gather statistical information about the usage of the Site to continually improve the design and functionality, understand how the Site is used and to assist us with resolving questions regarding the Site.

Cookies and similar technologies enhance your experience on the Site. If you disable cookies and similar technologies, your experience on the Site may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.

What cookies + similar technologies do we use?

Below we list the main types of cookies and similar technologies that we use on the Site. To the extent any personal information is collected through cookies, our Global Privacy Policy at https://www.acertitude.com/privacy applies and complements this CST Policy.

Cookies may be:

  • First party cookies served directly by us to your device.
  • Third party cookies served by a third party on our behalf. We use third party cookies to help us analyze our websites and their use, and to enable tailored advertising.

Essential cookies. Essential cookies enable you to navigate the Site and to use its services and features. Without these strictly necessary cookies, the Site will not perform as smoothly for you as we would like it to and we may not be able to provide the Site or certain services or features.

Preference cookies. Preference cookies collect information about your choices and preferences and allow us to remember language or other local settings and customize the Site accordingly. These cookies allow us to provide a more personalized experience.

Social media cookies. Social media cookies collect information about social media usage. We use social media cookies to help us integrate social media sharing tools into our Site and to measure the effectiveness of these sharing tools.

Analytics cookies. Analytics cookies collect information about your use of the Site and enable us to improve the way it works. For example, analytics cookies show us which are the most frequently visited pages on the Site, help us record any difficulties you have with the Site, and show us whether our advertising is effective or not. This allows us to see the overall patterns of usage on the Site, rather than the usage of a single person. We use the information in aggregate form to analyze Site traffic and perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our visitors by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the Site, but we do not examine this information for individually identifying information.

Browser or device information. Certain information is collected by most browsers or automatically through your device, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type (Windows or Mac), screen resolution, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, language, Internet browser type and version, and the name and version of the Site you are using. We use this information to ensure that the Site functions properly.

Google Analytics. We use Google Analytics, which uses cookies and similar technologies to collect and analyze information about use of the Services and report on activities and trends. This information allows us to measure Site performance and improve our Services. This service may also collect information regarding the use of other websites, apps and online resources. You can learn about Google’s practices by going to www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners, and opt out of them by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Please refer to http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/index.html for information on commonly used browsers. You may also follow the instructions provided by the UK Information Commission Office at https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/online/cookies.
