How to Make Choices About Your Cookies
Changes to This Policy
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site or view an advertisement. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences, and the contents of your shopping cart) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another. It also enables personalization of your web experiences. For example, a cookie may allow sites to record your browsing activities - like what pages and content you've looked at, when you visited, and whether you clicked on an ad.
To learn more about cookies, please visit http://www.aboutcookies.org/cookie-faq/.
The cookie-related information used for advertising is pseudonymous, which means it is tied to a unique identifier associated with your devices, but we do not identify you personally, such as by name, address, email, phone number, and the like.
Cookies are often categorized in three ways: Origin and Relationship, Duration, and Purpose.
Origin and Relationship: Cookies are often subcategorized as 1st or 3rd party in relation to a visitor to a website. In general, a first party cookie is a cookie from the domain (website) that you see in your browser’s address bar, while third party cookies are cookies issued from companies that control third party content on the website, such as an advertisement. Advertising cookies typically appear in a 3rd party context. Some browsers have additional restrictions for cookies appearing in 3rd party contexts.
Duration: We use two types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain on your device for a short amount of time (up to 30 days). Session cookies are essential to make our website work correctly, as they enable you to move around our website and use our features. These cookies don’t identify you as an individual. If you do not accept these cookies, it may affect the performance of the website, or parts of it, and may prevent you from logging in to our user interface. Persistent cookies help our advertising system remember your information across websites. This results in better advertising, more tailored to your interests. Persistent cookies remain on your device for much longer or until you manually delete it (how long the cookie remains on your device will depend on the duration or "lifetime" of the specific cookie and your browser settings).
Purpose: All cookies operate in essentially the same way (a text file with a name and a value), but they can be used for different purposes. To help you make choices about your cookies, we categorize the cookies we use into the following four categories based on their generalized use:
The Beeswax website contains both 1st party cookies placed by Beeswax and 3rd party cookies placed by our service providers, which are listed in the Specific Cookies Appearing on Beeswax.com section above. Beeswax has some control over the functionality of our service provider’s cookies and the data we receive from them, but we do not control either the expiry (how long a cookie will remain on your device) or the retention (how long the 3rd party will retain information collected by the cookie), so we cannot make any commitments about them. For more information about these cookies, please access the privacy policies of these services providers from the information provided in the table above.
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit our website and some services and functionalities may not work. Also, many of the cookie opt out options discussed below rely on opt-out cookies to operate, so if you delete your cookies after opting out, you must renew your opt out choices for each of your devices.
You can control cookies used on your devices using these methods:
For most mobile devices, you can opt out of Beeswax’s use of information about your usage of mobile apps for interest-based advertising by using your device settings. You can find information about setting up your advertising preferences on mobile devices by visiting http://www.networkadvertising.org/mobile-choice.
