What are cookies
Cookies are small data files that are sent to your internet browser, and these are read by small blocks of code called pixel tags.
How long do cookies stay on my device?
Some cookies will expire at the end of your session and most within a month. A few will remain on your computer for longer. The length of time a cookie will stay on your browsing device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies stay on your browsing device until they expire or are deleted (i.e. after you have finished browsing). The expiration time or retention period applicable to persistent cookies depends on the purpose of the cookie collection and tool used. You may be able to delete cookie data as described below.
Other tracking methods we use
In addition to cookies, we may use other technologies that are similar to cookies, like web beacons, flash cookies, or pixels to track how you use our Services.

Web beacons are placed on a website or in an email that alone or in conjunction with cookies compile information about your usage of or your interaction with the Services.

Tuune may collect information about whether you open or click any links in the Services, Research or marketing communications that we send to you through web beacons. The analysis gathered helps us improve the effectiveness of content and format of our websites and email communications.
- Flash Cookies: We may also use so-called “flash cookies” (also known as “Local Shared Objects” or “LSOs”) to collect and store information about your use of our Services. Flash cookies are commonly used for advertisements and videos.
- Pixels: A “pixel” or “tag” can be placed on a website or within an email for the purposes of tracking your interactions with our websites or when emails are opened or accessed; pixels are often used in combination with cookies.

When the Hotjar script executes we try to determine the most generic cookie path we should use, instead of the page hostname. This is done so that cookies can be shared Session Hotjar across subdomain s (where applicable). To determine this, we try to store the _hjTLDTest cookie for different URL substring alternatives until it fails. After this check, the cookie is removed.
