What are cookies?
Cookies consist of small files containing a string of characters that are sent from a website and stored in a user’s web browser while a user is visiting a website. When the user visits the same website in the future, the data stored in the cookie can be retrieved by the website to notify the website of the user’s previous activity. Cookies may store user preferences and other information.
Cookies provide a convenience feature to save you time, or tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. A cookie helps to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to the same website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the customized features.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, NiceProTools) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our websites to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our website. For example, NiceProTools keep track of the websites and pages you visit within NiceProTools, in order to determine what portion of the NiceProTools website is the most popular or most used. This data is used to deliver customized content and promotions within the NiceProTools website to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
Third parties serve cookies through our websites for advertising, analytics and other purposes.
This is described in more detail below.
