The UserWay Cookie Policy

This policy describes how UserWay uses cookies and local storage ("cookies").

We recommend that you also consult our Privacy Policy for additional information on how we collect and use information collected from visitors.

This policy is effective Jan 1, 2016. Your continued use of the UserWay software, code, widget, plugin and site after that will signify your acceptance of this policy.

We may modify this Policy without notifying you, so please check back often for updates.

By using the UserWay software, you agree that we can use the cookies (and local storage). You can stop cookies by changing the settings in your browser (more information on how to do this is provided below).

What Are Cookies?

Cookies are text files, containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your browsing device (such as a computer or smartphone) when you visit a website. Cookies can be recognized by the website that downloaded them — or other websites that use the same cookies. This helps websites know if the browsing device has visited them before.

What Are Cookies Used For?

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like helping us understand how the UserWay software is being used, letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your browsing experience. Cookies can also help ensure the accessibility options you see on a host website is more helpful and relevant to you.

What Types Of Cookies Does UserWay Use?

The type of cookies used on most websites can generally be put into one of six categories: Strictly Necessary, Performance, Functionality, Flash, Tailored Content and Targeting. In order to provide you with the best browsing experience, UserWay may use any or all of these categories throughout the UserWay software. You can find out more about each cookie category in the sections below.

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential, as they enable you to move around the UserWay software and use its features, such as accessing secure areas. Without these cookies, some services you have asked for can’t be provided.

Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about how you use the UserWay software, for example which accessibility features you enable most often and if you get error messages on certain host pages. These cookies don’t gather information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how the UserWay software works.

Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow the UserWay software to remember choices you make (such as which accessibility features your users have enabled on your site). For instance, the UserWay software uses functionality cookies to remember your accessibility preferences. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you’ve made to text size and other parts of pages that you can customize. They may also be used to provide services you’ve asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a post. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Flash Cookies

We may, in certain circumstances, use Adobe Flash Player to deliver special content, such as video clips or animation. To improve your user experience, Local Shared Objects (commonly known as "Flash cookies") are employed to provide functions such as remembering your settings and preferences. Flash cookies are stored on your device, but they are managed through an interface different from the one provided by your web browser. This means it is not possible to manage Flash cookies through your browser in the same way you would normally manage cookies. Instead, you can access your Flash management tools from Adobe’s website at http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager.html.

Tailored Content Cookies

Tailored content cookies help the UserWay software provide enhanced features and display content in a way that is relevant to you. These cookies help the UserWay software determine what information to show you based on how you have used the UserWay software previously. These cookies do not track your browsing activity on other websites.

Targeting Cookies

These cookies are used to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. They remember that you have visited a website and this information may be shared with other organizations such as advertisers. This means after you have accessed the UserWay software you may see some advertisements about our services elsewhere on the Internet.

How Long Will Cookies Stay On My Browsing Device?

The length of time a cookie will stay on your browsing device depends on whether it is a "persistent" or "session" cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies stay on your browsing device until they expire or are deleted.

First And Third Party Cookies

First party cookies are cookies that belong to us, while third party cookies are cookies that another party places on your browsing device through the UserWay software.

How To Control And Delete Cookies Through Your Browser

The browser you are using to access any UserWay software can enable, disable or delete cookies. To do this, follow the instructions provided by your browser (usually located within the "Help," "Tools" or "Edit" facility).

Please note that if you set your browser to disable cookies, you may not be able to access certain features of the UserWay software which could adversely affect accessibility functionality.

Other parts of the UserWay software may also not work properly. You can find out more information about how to change your browser cookie settings at http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
