What cookies do we use?
Cookies can be categorized by whom puts the cookie on the user’s computer (or other device the user uses to browse the website).
First-party cookies are cookies placed by the party operating the website. For example, any cookies we (Out Leadership) place on your device from our Sites are first-party cookies.
These cookies are necessary to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website.
Functionality and performance cookies
These cookies are used to enhance our website’s functionality performance.
These cookies collect information that is used in aggregate form (and therefore anonymous) to help us understand how our Websites are being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are. They provide information about which pages you visit and how often, but do not collect information that identifies you. The cookies provided by each third-party service provider send the information they collect to that third-party service provider. For example, the cookies provided by Google Analytics send information about your Website interactions to Google Analytics. Each third-party service provider then compiles aggregated data using the information received and sends us reports on the aggregated data. These reports are not shared with other parties. We use the reports to offer better Website experiences and tools in the future. We may also perform IP lookups to determine which domain you are coming from to more accurately gauge our users’ demographics.
Targeting/advertising cookies are cookies used to deliver advertisements relevant to the user. They remember that a user has visited a website and share this information with other organizations, such as advertising vendors. Cookies in this category may include Remarketing Cookies. These are cookies that remember that you visited our Site after you leave. Sometimes they collect information about what pages of our Sites you visited. They then share this information with our third-party vendors, such as Google. Based on this information, the third-party vendor shows you advertisements on third-party websites for Out Leadership products that we think may interest you based on what you viewed on our Site. We do not currently use such cookies, but may use the future.
Cookies can also be categorized by how long they remain on your device. There are two broad categories of duration:
Persistent cookies remain on your device until deleted manually or automatically. Session cookies – Session cookies remain on your device until you close your browser when they are automatically deleted. We use both session and persistent cookies on our Sites.
