Below we explain how OchriO, our partners, and other third parties use these technologies, your privacy settings, and the other options you have.
What are cookies, pixels, and local storage?
A pixel is a small amount of code on a web page or in an email notification. As many services do, we use pixels to learn whether you’ve interacted with certain web or email content. This helps us measure and improve our services and personalize your experience.
Local storage is an industry-standard technology that allows a website or application to store information locally on your computer or mobile device. We use local storage to customize what we show you based on your past interactions with our services.
Why do our services use these technologies?
Our services use these technologies to deliver, measure and improve our services in various ways. These uses generally fall into one of the following categories:
Authentication and security:
- To log you into OchriO.
- To protect your security.
- To let you view content with limited distribution.
- To help us detect and fight spam, abuse, and other activities that violate the OchriO Rules and Guidelines.
- For example, these technologies help authenticate your access to OchriO and prevent unauthorized parties from accessing your account. They also let us show you appropriate content through our services.
Personalization across devices:
- By better understanding how devices are related, we can use information from one device to help personalize the OchriO experience on another device.
- When you log in to OchriO on a device, we associate that device with your OchriO account. Whether or not you are logged in to OchriO, we may also receive information about your devices when, for example, that information is shared by a partner; you visit ochrio.org; you visit third-party websites that integrate OchriO content, or you visit an OchriO advertiser’s website or mobile application. We may use this information, most commonly IP addresses and the time at which the information was received, to infer that certain devices are associated with one another, including the devices on which you log in to OchriO. To learn more about the devices associated with your account, check out Your OchriO Data while logged in. To learn more about the other devices associated with the device or browser you are currently using, visit Your OchriO Data while logged out.
Where are these technologies used?
We (along with third parties) use these technologies on our websites, applications, and services and on other websites, applications, and services that have integrated our services, including third-party properties that incorporate our advertising technology. This includes our ad partners’ websites and sites that use our embeds, including embedded timelines. Third parties may also use these technologies, for example, when you click on links from our websites or applications, view or interact with third-party content from within our services, or visit third-party websites that incorporate our advertising technology.
What are my privacy options?
- To control whether OchriO stores information about other websites where you’ve seen OchriO content, adjust the Track where you see OchriO content across the web setting in your Personalization and data settings. If you have this setting turned off or are in the European Union or EFTA States, OchriO will not store or use such web page visits to improve your experience in the future. If we’ve previously stored your web browsing history, your experience may continue to be personalized based on information already inferred from that history.
