This Cookie Policy applies whenever you access and use ParaSpace. “ParaSpace” includes our website, services, applications, products and content (collectively, the “ParaSpace Platform”). Like many websites and apps, ParaSpace uses cookies and similar technologies such as software development kits (SDKs) and local storage. These technologies allow us to store information or gain access to information stored on your device to enable certain features and distinguish your device from others. Cookies and similar technologies are used by most apps and website providers to recognise that a device is the same as one used previously, for security, to remember user preferences and to generally improve user experience. This Policy explains what these technologies are and how we use them.

What technologies are used?

ParaSpace uses the following kinds of technologies: Cookies: Cookies are small text files that enable us and our service providers and partners to uniquely identify your browser or device for various purposes, including those described above. Cookies normally work by assigning a unique number to your device and are stored on your browser by the websites that you visit as well as third party service providers and partners to those websites. Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. Some cookies are "session cookies", meaning that they exist only while your browser is open and are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are "persistent cookies", meaning that they survive after your browser is closed. Most persistent cookies are set to automatically expire after a defined duration (for example, a few days, weeks or months). When you return to that website (or visit other websites that use the same cookies) the website provider or its service providers can recognise the persistent cookies they have set and recognise your browsing device. Local storage: Local storage files are created by apps and websites to store information locally on your device. They are very similar to cookies, but can have slightly different properties (for example, local storage can be used to store more information and can be stored in a different location on your device compared to cookies). Local storage is normally used to speed up app and website functionality and remember your preferences. SDKs: SDKs are pieces of code that enable data to be collected about your device, network and interaction with a website. Like cookies, they generally operate by assigning your device a unique number.

Categories of cookies and similar technologies

The types of cookies and similar technologies used by us and our partners in connection with the provision of the ParaSpace Platform can be classified into the following categories. Some of these categories are “essential” to provide you with the services you have requested, such as securely logging into the ParaSpace Platform. The following is a list of the categories of cookies and similar technologies we use: Identification and Security: Identification and security cookies and similar technologies help us keep you and the ParaSpace Platform secure, recognise you when you return to the ParaSpace Platform to make sure that you are the right user and prevent activity that violates our policies. Remembering your preferences: We need to remember the settings you have chosen on the ParaSpace Platform so that they work how you want them to. For example, we use these technologies in order to remember what languages you want to see content in, and the privacy setting you apply to your posts. Functionality: Functionality cookies and similar technologies make the ParaSpace Platform work more efficiently and improve and optimize your experience. For example, to determine which device you use, the software version and the screen dimensions so that we can ensure that our app functions correctly. Analytics: We use analytics cookies and similar technologies to analyse how you use the ParaSpace Platform, including which pages you view most often, how you interact with the content, measure any errors that occur and test different design ideas. The information is used to report and evaluate your activities and patterns as a user of the ParaSpace Platform. For example, we may test new features to help us decide which features users prefer.

Do other parties use these technologies on the ParaSpace Platform?

Cookies and similar technologies can either be “first-party” or “third-party”. First-party cookies and similar technologies refer to technologies that we set and use directly. Third-party cookies and similar technologies refer to technologies set by third parties (such as analytics service providers). We use first-party and third-party cookies and similar technologies on the ParaSpace Platform.

How can I control these technologies?

You can set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies. As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser to browser, you should visit your browser's help menu for more information.
