What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files placed and downloaded in the user´s computer's browser to store information to recognize the user, to remember the user´s preferences and to provide a more secure online experience.

Generally, cookies are very useful and are a common method used by almost every website to help the user´s online experience be as efficient as possible. For security reasons, many websites may not function at all without the use of cookies (or other similar technologies, such as "web beacons" or "tags").

Cookies generally do not hold any information to identify an individual person, but are instead used to identify a browser on an individual machine. Cookies, by themselves, do not let us know the user´s email address or other personal information unless the user choose to provide this information to us. Once the user chooses to provide Personal Information to a website, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.

Cookies can be referred to as session cookies or persistent cookies, depending on how long they are used:

What types of Cookie may Herolens use in general?

Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential in helping the user to make use of the features and services we offer on the Site and/or Advertiser´s websites. Without these cookies, the services the user wants to use cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather any information that could be used to identify the user, and they do not monitor or remember where the user have been on the internet.

Performance Cookies

Performance cookies help us to understand how users use the Site and/or Advertiser´s website, so we can keep our and/or Advertiser´s products and services relevant, easy to use and up to date.

Targeting cookies

The purpose of these cookies is to value "behavioral advertising" (also known as "behavioral targeting" or "remarketing"), which is a means of showing the user relevant products and services based on what the user appears to be interested in. Although these cookies can track the user´s visits around the web they don't know who the user is. Without these cookies, our online advertisements will be less relevant to the user and the user´s interests.

A secure cookie is only sent to the server with an encrypted request over the HTTPS protocol. To prevent cross-site scripting attacks, cookies are only sent to the server.

Third Party Cookies

While first-party cookies are sent only to the server setting them, a web page may contain images or other components or elements stored on servers in other domains (like ad banners, for example). Cookies sent through these third-party components are called third-party cookies and are mainly used for advertising and tracking across the internet. Herolens may act through third party cookies in Advertiser´s websites.

Through Advertiser´s website, Herolens may also use small pieces of software code called "web beacons" or "clear gifs" to collect anonymous and aggregate advertising matrix, such as counting page views, promotion views, or advertising responses. Also Herolens may also use tracking pixels. A web beacon is an electronic image, called a single-pixel or clear GIF. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on Users computer, such as a user's Cookie number, time and date of a page view, and description of the page where the web beacon is placed. The User may render some web beacons unusable if he/she chooses to reject their associated cookies. These web beacons may be use to deliver cookies that conform with our Cookie Policy. A tracking pixel (also called 1x1 pixel or pixel tag) is a graphic with dimensions of 1x1 pixels that is loaded when a user visits a website or opens an email, and is used to track certain user activities. With a tracking pixel, Herolens can acquire user’s information for online marketing, web analysis or email marketing.
