3. What types of cookies may be used on eKarma Sites?
We may use the following types of cookies on eKarma Sites:
Session cookies are temporary cookie files which are erased when you close your browser. When you restart your browser and go back to the site that created that cookie, the website will treat you as a new visitor.
Persistent cookies stay on your browser until you delete them manually or until your browser deletes them based on the duration period set within the cookie. These cookies will recognise you as a returning visitor.
Necessary cookies are strictly necessary for the operation of a eKarma Site. They enable you to navigate around the site and use our features.
Cookies that send information to us
These are the cookies that we set on the eKarma Site and they can only be read by that site. This is known as a “First Party” cookie.
We also place cookies on eKarma ads which are placed on other websites owned by third parties (e.g. Facebook). We obtain information via those cookies when you click on or interact with the advertisement. In this situation eKarma is placing a “Third Party” cookie. eKarma may use the information obtained by these cookies to serve you with advertising that is relevant and of interest to you based on your past online behaviour.
Cookies that send information to other companies
These are cookies that are set on a eKarma Site by our partner companies (e.g. Facebook or advertisers). They may use the data collected from these cookies to anonymously target advertising to you on other websites, based on your visit to this Website. For example, if you use a social widget (e.g. the Facebook icon) on the Website, it will record your “share” or “like”. Facebook (as the company setting the cookie) will collect the data.
