This policy details how Spinclabs uses cookies, cookie-like files and other technologies which may enable tracking of user activities on its websites, e.g. Local Shared Objects, also known as “Flash cookies”, web beacons etc. We refer to these generically as “cookies”.ur personal data.

What are cookies and how do they work?

Cookies are small files that are sent to and stored in your computer by the websites you visit. Cookies are stored in your browser’s file directory. Next time you visit the site, your browser will read the cookie and relay the information back to the website or element that originally set the cookie. First-party cookies are set by the website you are visiting directly. They allow website owners to collect analytics data, remember language settings and perform other useful functions that help provide a good user experience. Third-party cookies are cookies used within our services which are set by other organizations. To learn more about these technologies and how they work, please see e.g. allaboutcookies.org.

Why does Spinclabs use cookies?

At Spinclabs domains, we use cookies to offer you a smoother experience, and for the purposes shown below. View your options for managing cookies in the next chapter. Our Privacy Policies, available at https://www.spinclabs.tech/privacypolicy, explain how we protect your privacy in our use of cookies and other information.

Basic functions

These cookies are essential for running our web sites and are key to providing you a seamless experience.

You can navigate uninterrupted e.g. by remembering choices you’ve made and by preserving authentication to secure parts of the domain. These cookies also remember products of interest when you are redirected to a payment site for a possible purchase.

Providing a better website experience

These cookies enable us to improve our websites and business processes by looking at how our websites are used.

We do analytical profiling to understand e.g. unique users reading a particular article (to know what is popular), if a video file was viewed or abandoned half way through, or the effectiveness of our recruitment campaigns. We also look at where content is accessed so we know how to arrange our sites for optimal user experience. We count clicks on “Like” and “Tweet” plugins and what content from our sites was shared or referenced. We may conduct A/B testing on our websites.

Delivering more of the content you like

These cookies help make the content you view and receive as personalized as possible, for example by showing you targeted banners and relevant recommendations.

We examine what type of reference was used to reach our sites, e.g. an email campaign or a link from a referral site, so we can estimate the effectiveness of our promotions and advertising campaigns.

Promoting relevant offers (including third-party cookies)

We use these cookies to dynamically serve Spinclabs ads on both Spinclabs and selected third party websites.

Currently, we also host third party advertising on Spinclabs offerings through 24/7 Real Media, Facebook or LinkedIn. These ads are not provided by Spinclabs. We may expand third party advertising to other Spinclabs sites and offerings in future.

Our domains may also include elements that set cookies on behalf of a third party, e.g. a “Like”-button from Facebook or a “Tweet”-button from Twitter. We may also use pixel tracking to provide a reference ID from your visit back to the site from where you were referred. Applicable third parties are listed below in the section “What third party cookies does Spinclabs use?”.
