When does Aaptiv place cookies?
What types of cookies does Aaptiv use?
We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as a user. These types of cookies can be used to make it easier to return to Aaptiv or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by Aaptiv when you return to our site. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
Aaptiv utilizes both first and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are set by Aaptiv. Third-party cookies are set by companies other than Aaptiv, such as analytics providers.
What are cookies used for?
Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit Aaptiv. Cookies also make your interactions with Aaptiv faster and more secure. Additionally, cookies allow us to bring you Aaptiv advertising off of the Aaptiv site.
Categories of Use
Cookies help us keep you logged in upon returning to our website so that you do not need to sign in each time.
Performance, Analytics and Research
Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information.
What to do if you don't want cookies to be set or want them to be removed?
If you do not want to receive cookies, you can change your browser settings on your computer or other device you're using to access our services. If you use Aaptiv without changing your browser settings, we'll assume that you're happy to receive all cookies on the Aaptiv website. Most browsers also provide functionality that lets you review and erase cookies, including Aaptiv cookies. Please note that the Aaptiv site may not work properly without cookies.
