What technologies are used?
|Type of technology||Description|
A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables UpLink features and functionality. Any browser visiting our sites may receive cookies from us or cookies from third parties such as our customers, partners or service providers.
We use two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie may help us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to UpLink or interact with our Services without signing in again. A persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by UpLink when you return to our site. Session cookies last only as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
|Pixels||A pixel is a tiny image that may be found within web pages and emails, requiring a call (which provides device and visit information) to our servers in order for the pixel to be rendered in those web pages and emails. We use pixels to learn more about your interactions with email or web content. Pixels can also enable us and third parties to place cookies on your browser.|
|Local storage||Local storage enables a website or application to store information locally on your device(s). Local storage may be used to improve the UpLink experience, for example, by enabling features, remembering your preferences and speeding up site functionality.|
What are these technologies used for?
Below we describe the purposes for which we use these technologies.
If you’re signed into UpLink, these technologies help us show you the right information and personalize your experience in line with your settings. For example, cookies enable UpLink to identify you and verify your account.
|Preferences, features and services||
For example, cookies can tell us which language you prefer and what your communications preferences are. We may also use local storage to speed up site functionality.
|Performance, analytics and research||
Cookies and similar technologies help us learn more about how well we perform in different locations.
We use these technologies to understand, improve, and research products, features and services, including as you navigate through our sites or when you access UpLink from other sites, applications or devices.
