2. Cookie List

A cookie is a small piece of data (text file) that a website – when visited by a user – asks your browser to store on your device to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information. Some of those cookies are set by us and called 1st-party cookies., however we also use third-party cookies – which are cookies from a domain different than the domain of the website or platform you are visiting (e.g. www.techinsights.com) ) – and are predominantly used for our advertising and marketing efforts and to enhance the quality and performance of our website.

More specifically, we use cookies and other tracking technologies for the following purposes:

Strictly Necessary Cookies

They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, or logging in. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.

Marketing Cookies

These cookies may be set through our site by our own internal teams or by our advertising partners. Marketing cookies are used to identify visitors between different websites, e.g. content partners, banner networks, and may be used to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on other sites. They do not directly store or collect personal information but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and other cookies loaded in your browser. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

Performance Cookies

These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. Those cookies cannot be used to directly identify a certain visitor and do not directly store or collect personal information, but do uniquely identify your browser, IP Address and other cookies loaded in your browser. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our site and will not be able to monitor its performance.
