What are Cookies?
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 website. Cookies are widely used by
website owners to make their websites operate, work more efficiently, and provide analytic information.
The TU-POLY Privacy Notice will apply in addition to this Notice where we collect and use personal information through the Cookies.
Listed below are the different categories of Cookies that TU-POLY and vendors on our behalf may use on our Sites.
- Strictly Necessary Cookies. These technologies are necessary for the TU-POLY experience to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. The technology is usually only set in response to actions made by the device owner which amount to a request for services, such as setting privacy preferences, logging in, filling in forms, maintaining secure login areas, maintaining state across pages (remembering items in a shopping basket), and server load balancing. The device owner can set their preference to block or alert TU-POLY about these technologies, but some parts of the TU-POLY experience will not work. These technologies do not store any personally identifiable information.
- Analytics Cookies. These technologies allow TU-POLY to count device visits and traffic sources, so TU-POLY can measure and improve the performance of our experiences. The technology helps TU-POLY to know which experiences are the most and least popular and see how device owners interact with the experience. All information these technologies collect is aggregated. If the device owner does not allow these technologies, then TU-POLY will not know when the device owner visited or how the device owner interacted with our experiences.
- Functional Cookies. These technologies enable the TU-POLY experience to provide enhanced functionality and personalization. The technology may be set by TU-POLY or by third-party providers whose services TU-POLY have added to our experiences. If the device owner does not allow these technologies, then some or all of these services may not function properly for the device owner.
- Ad Targeting Cookies. These technologies may be set through our TU-POLY experience or by our advertising partners. The technology may be used to build a profile of the device owner’s interests and show the device owner relevant advertisements on other experiences. The technology does not store directly personal information on the device, but the technology is based on uniquely identifying the device. If the device owner does not allow these technologies, then the device owner will experience less targeted advertising.
