Cookie Policy

Last Updated: October 26th, 2022

Zyte Group Limited and its subsidiaries (collectively, “Zyte,” “we,” “our,” and “us”) think it is important that you understand how cookies, pixels, and other similar technologies (“Cookies”) are used to optimize your experience of Zyte’s products and services. Please read the following Cookie Policy to learn more about how we use Cookies when you interact or use our websites (collectively the “Websites”) or any related events, sales or marketing, and/or if you use any of our products, services, or applications (including any trial or testing) (collectively the “Services”) in any manner. In this Cookie Policy, we explain what a Cookie is, which Cookies we use and for which purpose. This Cookie Policy should be read in conjunction with our Privacy Policy. We describe in our Privacy Policy how and for which purposes we process your personal data, how you can exercise your privacy rights, and all other information that may be relevant to you.

1. What are cookies?

Cookies are usually small text files stored on a device, such as a PC, a mobile device or any other or other internet enabled devices that can store information. Devices that may use cookies also include so-called ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) devices that connect to the internet. Web beacons (also known as pixels) are small graphic images that allow us to track if you opened an email and clicked links. Similar technologies (such as local shared objects or local storage) also enable the entity using them to track user behavior.  Information collected by cookies includes general information about your computer settings, your connection to the Internet (such as your operating system and platform), IP address, your browsing patterns and duration on the Site as well as your location.

2. When does Zyte use cookies?

At Zyte’s request, a browser may place cookies from our Websites and Services on your device. Accordingly, our Privacy Policy will apply to our treatment of the information we obtain via cookies. We may also allow our third party vendors or consultants to send cookies to your device. For example, we use Google Analytics for web analytics, and so Google may also send cookies to your device.

You may decline to accept cookies when you visit our website, however if you sign up for any of our Services you are expressly accepting our use of cookies as outlined in this Cookie Policy.

3. What types of cookies does Zyte use?

Cookies can be session or persistent. Session cookies are designed to only function for the duration of a browser session or slightly longer. Persistent cookies are stored on a user's device in between browser sessions. They can also be first or third party cookies. Whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the website or domain placing the cookie. First party cookies in basic terms are cookies set by a website visited by the user - the website displayed in the URL window. Third party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by you. If you visit a website and a separate company sets a cookie through that website this would be a third party cookie.

We use the following types of Cookies for the following purposes:

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies. These Cookies are necessary for our Website and Services to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these Cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work.
  • Performance Cookies. These Cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our Website and Services. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around our Website and Services. If you do not allow these Cookies we will not know when you have visited our site or used our products and/or services and will not be able to monitor their performance.
  • Functional Cookies. These Cookies enable our Website and Services to provide enhanced functionality. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these Cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly. 
  • Targeting/Marketing Cookies. These Cookies may be set through our Website by our advertising partners. They may be used to track visitors across websites, products and services, for example they may track things such as how long you spend on the Website and the pages that you visit, so that we can continue to produce engaging content. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. If you do not allow these Cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

4. For what purposes does Zyte use cookies?

Zyte uses cookies for a number of purposes, as follows: 

  • to enable, facilitate, and streamline the functioning of the Websites and Services across different webpages and browser sessions;
  • to simplify your access to and use of the Websites and Services and make it more seamless;
