  1. What are Cookies?

“Cookies” are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites function, to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information. 

We use first-party cookies on our Services. First-party Cookies are Cookies that are placed on your device by us.  

Generally, information collected by Cookies and other tracking technologies does not constitute Personal Information as defined by applicable privacy laws. However, if exceptionally such collected information does constitute Personal Information (such as ‘IP’ addresses or similar identifiers), we will treat it as Personal Information in accordance with the Privacy Notice.

  1. How long will cookies stay on my browsing device?

Our retention periods for Cookie information depend on whether the Cookie is a “persistent” or “session” Cookie. Each category of Cookie listed below is either a session Cookie or persistent Cookie.

We use “persistent Cookies” to save information about you for longer periods of time, while “session” Cookies are deleted when you close your browser or after a short period of time. Persistent Cookies are stored for varied lengths of time depending on the purpose of the Cookie collection and tool used. You can delete Cookie data as described herein.

  1. Why does OffChex use Cookies?

We use first-party Cookies for several reasons. OffChex uses Cookies to help it understand how the Services are being used, such as whether you spent more time on a certain part of the Services, whether you experienced any technical issues, and more.  Some Cookies are required for technical reasons in order for the Services to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” Cookies.

  1. What types of Cookies does OffChex use?

As of the date of this Cookie Policy, we only use first-party Cookies. Since circumstances may change, we may use third-party Cookies or other Cookies in the future.

We use the Cookies described below on the Services:

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies

These Cookies are strictly necessary for the Website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems.  They are usually set only in response to actions made by you which amount to requests to provide the Services. Strictly necessary Cookies allow you to use the Services and to enable access to various features such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms, creating a unique user session, and enabling access to secure areas.  You can set your browser to block or alert you about these Cookies, but some parts of the Services will not then work. These Cookies do not store any personally identifiable information and OffChex serves these Cookies directly.

 

  • Performance Cookies

Performance Cookies such as Google Analytics, are first party Cookies and are used to enhance and improve the performance of the Services but are not essential. These Cookies collect information that helps us understand how the Services are being used by our customers and how effective our marketing campaigns are. These Cookies may collect ‘IP’ addresses and may generate a unique identifier to analyze how frequently you visit the Services, and gather other metrics such as page views. All information these Cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these Cookies we will not know when you have visited the Services, and will not be able to monitor the performance of the Services.

We use Google Analytics for analytics purposes. To learn more about Google Analytics and their privacy policies, please visit:

You may opt-out of Google Analytics for display advertising or customize Google display network ads by managing your privacy controls on Google's website.

  • Targeting Cookies

Targeting Cookies are used by our advertising and marketing partners and work primarily through uniquely identifying your device (e.g., advertising ID, ‘IP’ address, geolocation), and are used to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant ads on other websites you may visit. If you do not allow these Cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

  • Other Tracking Technologies

Cookies are not the only way to track visitors to a website. OffChex and our third-party partners may use other similar technologies such as clear GIFs (also known as “tracking pixels” and “web beacons”). Clear GIFs are small graphics files that contain an identifier that recognizes when a user visits our Website. This allows our third-party partners to monitor traffic patterns between websites, communicate with Cookies, to understand if you have come from an advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to monitor the success of marketing campaigns and to improve site performance. These technologies typically rely on Cookies to function, so disabling cookies in your browser will impair their functionality.
