Cookie Notice

Last Updated: May 24, 2018

Calero Software, LLC (“Calero,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) uses cookies and similar technologies on Calero’s website (the “Service”).   By using the Service, you consent to the use of these cookies and similar technologies.

This Cookie Notice explains how Calero uses cookies and similar technologies when you visit Calero’s website, interact with marketing emails, or use our products and services. In some cases, we use cookies and similar technologies to collect personal data, in which case the Calero’s Privacy Policy and Cookie Notice also apply.

What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) 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. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon as you visit our site.

“First party cookies” are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time.  For example, unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon as you visit our website.

“Third-party cookies” are set by parties other than the website operator. Third party cookies enable websites to provide third-party features or functionality (e.g., like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognize your device both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

“Session cookies” allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

“Persistent cookies” remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the Web site that created that particular cookie.

Categories of Cookies We Use

We use first party and third-party cookies for several reasons.

Some cookies are required for technical reasons for our website, such as to log-in and access secure areas. Some are session cookies that are stored in temporary memory, not retained after an end-user’s browsing session ends and do not obtain information from the end-user’s device. Others are used to recognize returning users and remember preferences.  These cookies are essential for using product and website. We refer to these as “strictly necessary” cookies.

Some cookies enable us to understand how individuals use and interact with our website, electronic communications, and products. We recognize and count the number of visitors and see how they move around the site or interact with our communications. This helps us improve the way our site works by making sure users easily find what they need. The collected data provides us only with anonymous traffic statistics (like number of page views, number of visitors, and time spent on each page). We call these “analytics” cookies.

Some cookies are used to remember user choices (e.g. user name and location) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies are not essential for using and navigating the website, but without them certain functionality may be unavailable. We call these “functionality” cookies.

Some cookies allow us to deliver more targeted online advertising and marketing campaigns based on your visit to our website or interaction with our electronic communications. We refer to these as “advertising” cookies.

Social Media Features

Our website and electronic communications use social media features, such as a “share” or “like” button (“Social Media Features”). These features may collect your IP address and page you are visiting on our website, and they set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. You may be given the option by using Social Media Features to post information about your activities on our website to a profile page of yours. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing the relevant Social Media Features.

Similar Technologies

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track users of our website, electronic communications, and products. We use other similar technologies like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has interacted with our website or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve our website, electronic communications, and product performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Flash Cookies or Local Shared Objects

Our website may also use so-called “Flash Cookies” (also known as “Local Shared Objects or “LSOs”) to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our products, fraud prevention and for other site operations.

Targeted Online Advertising

Calero uses service providers to track and analyze both individualized usage and volume statistical information from interactions with our website and electronic communications. We also partner with third parties (such as advertisers and ad networks) to display advertising on our website, electronic communications and to manage and serve advertising on other third-party sites.

These third parties use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags and similar tracking technologies to collect and use information about your online activities, either on our website, electronic communications, and other third-party sites. This information is used alone and in combination with information about you that we obtain from other sources (like our data partners) and contact details, professional information and transaction history (to infer your interests and deliver you targeted advertisements and marketing that are more tailored to you based on your browsing activities and inferred interests (“Interest Based Advertising”). This Interest Based Advertising will only be delivered where permitted by applicable law and in accordance with your advertising/marketing preferences.

Our third-party service providers also use cookies or web beacons to collect information about your interaction with our website, electronic communications and other third-party sites to measure and track the effectiveness of advertisements and our online marketing activities (for example, by collecting data on how many times you click on one of our advertisements).

The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other personal information that directly identifies you unless you choose to provide these.

Disabling most Internet-based advertising. Most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of Interest Based Advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit www.aboutads.info/choices or www.youronlinechoices.com.

Do Not Track. Some Internet browsers (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari) include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals. Since uniform standards for “DNT” signals have not been adopted, our website does not currently process or respond to “DNT” signals. We take privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard. To learn more about “DNT”, please visit the “All About Do Not Track” website (see https://allaboutdnt.com/).
