This policy explains what cookies are and how we use them. Please read the policy to better understand what type of cookies we use, the information collected using cookies and how that information is used by The RevYou Platform.
What are cookies?
Cookies are little data files (text files) that are stored on the browser or hard drive of your device (computer or mobile) when you visit a website.
Cookies make your browsing experience to The RevYou Platform as smooth as possible by remembering your preferences, so you don’t have to insert your details again and again.
There are different types of cookies. Some cookies come directly from our website and others come from third parties which place cookies on our site.
Cookies can be stored for varying lengths of time on your browser or device. Session cookies are deleted from your computer or device when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer or device until deleted or until they reach their expiry date.
We have 3 varieties of cookies which operate on our website:
1. Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are necessary for the website 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 of 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. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
The strictly necessary cookies allow you to navigate our site, login, display the correct page for the device you are using.
To opt out of these cookies you will need to change the settings on your browser by selecting your cookie preferences. If you choose to block these cookies our website may not work as it should and any preferences you have may be lost.
2. Performance cookies
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources, so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. 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 our site.
These are performance cookies used to track visits to our website and movement around the site. The data which is collected is anonymous and is used for benchmarking purposes to monitor the performance of our site and to measure user engagement. We share the anonymized Google Analytics data with selected third parties to assist us in understanding the effectiveness of our website and our marketing efforts.
3. Targeting cookies
These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners who may use them to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
We also use social media buttons on our site which allow you to share content and interact with your social network on platforms like Facebook, and Twitter. These social media platforms may set their own cookies on your device. We do not control the settings of these cookies so we suggest you check the respective social media website for more information about their cookies and how to manage them.
How do you change cookie preferences or block cookies?

Generally, your browser will offer you the choice to accept, refuse or delete all cookies, third-party cookies or specific website cookies. Each browser’s website should contain instructions on how you can do this.
