What type of cookies does EBOX use?

Cookies can either be session cookies or persistent cookies. A session cookie expires automatically when you close your browser. A persistent cookie will remain until it expires or you delete your cookies. Expiration dates are set in the cookies themselves; some may expire after a few minutes, while others may expire after multiple years. Cookies placed by the website you’re visiting are called “first party cookies”. Strictly Necessary cookies are necessary for our platform to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are essential to enable you to navigate around the platform and use its features. If you remove or disable these cookies, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to use our platform. We use the following types of cookies in our platform:


Essential Cookies.

We use essential cookies to make our platform work. These cookies are strictly necessary to enable core functionality such as security, network management, cookie preferences, and accessibility. Without them, you wouldn't be able to use essential services. You may disable these by changing your browser settings, affecting how the Websites function.


Performance and Functionality Cookies.

These cookies enhance the performance and functionality of our platform but are non-essential. However, without these cookies, certain functionality, like videos, may become unavailable, or you would be required to enter your login details every time you visit the platform, as we could not remember that you had logged in previously.


Marketing Cookies.

These account-based marketing cookies enable us to identify prospects and personalize their sales and marketing interactions.


Analytics and Customization Cookies.

These cookies collect information to help us understand how our platform is being used, how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customize our platform for you.

We use cookies served by Google Analytics to collect limited data directly from end-user browsers, enabling us to understand your use of our platform better. Further information on how Google collects and uses this data can be found at google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. You can opt out of all Google-supported analytics on our Websites by visiting https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.


Social Media Cookies.

These cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” button on our Site, link your account, or engage with our content on or through a social networking website such as Facebook, Twitter, or Google+. The social network will record that you have done this. These cookies may also include specific codes placed on the platform to help track conversions from ads, optimize ads based on collected data, build targeted audiences for future ads, and remarket to qualified users who have already taken specific actions on the platform.


Third-Party Cookies.

Some cookies on our platform are not set on a first-party basis by EBOX. The Websites can be embedded with content from third parties to advertise. These third-party service providers may set their cookies on your web browser. Third-party service providers control many performance and functionality, advertising, marketing, and analytics cookies described above. We do not control the use of these third-party cookies, as cookies can only be accessed by the third party that initially sets them.


How can you manage cookies?

Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their 'settings' preferences. However, limiting websites' ability to set cookies may worsen your overall user experience since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information. Browser manufacturers provide help pages relating to cookie management in their products.
