All Cookies are either:

  • Session Cookies: Cookies that are temporarily stored in your browser during a browser session. They typically store session identification information and have no further personal information identifying you. Session Cookies are also called transient Cookies.
  • Persistent Cookies: Cookies that are stored on your hard drive until they expire according to their expiration dates or until you delete them. Persistent Cookies are utilized to collect identifying information, such as web surfing behavior or user preferences, for a specific website. Persistent Cookies are also called permanent or stored Cookies.

On our website, we employ the following types of Cookies:

  • Required Cookies,
  • Functionality Cookies, and
  • Advertising Cookies.

These Cookies are a mixture of first-party Cookies, that we set ourselves (in this case, insightsoftware), and third-party Cookies, that are set by any other party.

Cookie Functions

We use Cookies across our website to improve the website’s performance and enhance the user experience for the following functions:

  • Personalization – To enhance the website experience. For example, a Cookie will remember your language preference.
  • Session Management – To ensure your session is maintained when you access different website pages, so information is routed correctly during the duration of your visit.
  • Usage Tracking – To provide analysis of our users’ ongoing usage of our website, so we can update our website according to our users’ interests and facilitate ongoing improvements to our website.
  • Multivariate Testing – To display multiple versions of a page to users to assess which version generates the best user experience.
  • Advertising – To display advertising content depending on location, language and a user’s past browsing history.

Required Cookies

We use Cookies that are strictly necessary to allow you to access our websites, to move between pages and to receive services you requested. The types of data collected are session identifier, IP address, when available, a computer host name, geographic location, time of visit, webpage URL, referring website, and security tokens (for authentication and information submission, like RFP forms).

Functionality Cookies

We use functionality Cookies to remember your preferences. These Cookies recall your customized preferences by remembering your desired language when you access our website.

This allows us to provide a high-quality experience by tailorizing our offerings and quickly fixing website issues that arise. We may use functionality Cookies to track which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective and to determine why some webpages receive error messages.

Advertising Cookies

We, along with our partners and advertisers, use Cookies to collect information about your use of our website and to display ads relevant to you and your interests. Our third-party advertisers and partners may also analyze the Cookie data to provide advertisements to you on third-party websites.

We collaborate with advertisers to display our ads on third-party websites based on the Cookies set on your visit to our website. Advertising Cookies may track your responses to particular ads to ensure you see the most relevant ads in the future on third-party websites.

The types of data that advertising Cookies use includes online identifiers including Cookie identifiers, IP addresses and device identifiers, imprecise location data (based on your IP address) or precise location data (if you have set your system to allow transmission of geolocation information), and client identifiers.

Advertising Cookies collect data on how products and services trend with certain demographics of users, show ads to users who have searched for similar products and services and select certain words or phrases to target users most likely to engage with our website.

When our partners and advertisers collect data on our website or use information we provide to them for their services, we are not in control of this data. Our partners and advertisers also do not process this data for us. As a result, our partners and advertisers control this data and their data protection policies solely apply to their processing of this data.

Pixels aka web beacons/web bugs/java script

We may use pixels to record and track users on our website.

The data we receive from pixels allows us to target different user populations and optimize external ads on third-party websites.
