Who sets Cookies on Windocks?
Cookies are sometimes placed by Windocks, known as first-party cookies, and sometimes third-party cookies are set by our service providers, such as Google Analytics who provides analytics and interest-based advertising. When third-party cookies are set by service providers, they are providing a service or function to Windocks, as well as achieving the service provider's own purposes. Windocks cannot control how third-party cookies are used. You can review Google Analytics' available opt-outs, including the Google Analytics Browser Ad-On by visiting: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.
How do I manage my Cookies?
Windocks has unified our cookie management tool across all Windocks domains providing users with a central location to manage your cookie preferences. With the exception of "strictly necessary" cookies that are essential for the Services to operate, you will be able to opt-in, opt-out, or adjust your cookie preferences for all other cookie categories. Please note that disabling some cookies may cause certain features of the Services to not function properly. This tool can be accessed by clicking on the Cookie Settings link located in the footer of each webpage.
Most web browsers also allow you to delete cookies already placed, which may delete the settings and preferences controlled by those cookies, including advertising preferences. You can find instructions to remove any cookies that have been created in the cookie folder of your browser at https://allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.
Do Not Track Signals
"Do Not Track" (DNT) is a privacy preference you can set in your web browser to indicate that you do not want to be tracked. Windocks responds to DNT signals and respects a user's track preference expression for client-side events.
Service providers may participate in self-regulatory programs that provide ways to opt out of analytics and interest-based advertising, which you can access at:
- United States: NAI (http://optout.networkadvertising.org) and DAA (http://optout.aboutads.info/)
- Canada: Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada (https://youradchoices.ca/)
- Europe: European Digital Advertising Alliance (http://www.youronlinechoices.com)
Most email clients have settings which allow you to prevent the automatic downloading of images, which will disable web beacons in the email messages you read.
Mobile Advertising IDs
On mobile devices, advertising IDs provided by the platform may be collected and used similar to cookie IDs. You may use the controls on iOS and Android operating systems that allow you to limit tracking and/or reset the advertising IDs.
What types of Cookies do we use?
Windocks utilizes four categories of cookies: strictly necessary cookies, functional cookies, performance and analytics cookies, as well as targeting and advertising cookies. You can read more about each of these types of cookies and view the cookies within each category that can be found in the Services by clicking on the Cookies Settings link located in the footer of each webpage.
