A cookie is a small file, typically made up of letters and numbers, downloaded to a device (e.g. a computer, a mobile phone) when the User accesses Sites. Cookies are then sent back to originating Sites on each subsequent visit, allowing us to recognize your device. Cookies and other Automatic Data Collection Tools are therefore important in provisioning many online services. Nonetheless, their use requires that users are properly informed about how they operate and the consequences deriving from their installation, so that users have the choice to refuse them, if feasible.
Cookies can expire at the end of a browsing session or they can be stored for a longer period. Session cookies are cookies that last for a browsing session, which is the time between when a user opens the browser window to when he/she exits the browser window. Persistent cookies are stored on the User's device and are reused between sessions.
Session cookies – allow Sites to link the actions of a user during a browsing session. Session cookies are used for a variety of purposes, such as remembering user input for online forms and providing a secure way to maintain communication with a Site when doing things like shopping online or using webmail. As mentioned, session cookies expire after a browsing session, and are deleted automatically as soon as the browser is shut down. They are limited to the purpose of transmitting data to identify the specific session and allow private and efficient Site surfing. Session cookies used in Sites avoid computer methods that could potentially compromise User privacy, and are made up of random numbers created by the Site that have nothing to do with a User or their information.
Persistent cookies – are stored on a user's device in between browsing sessions which allow the preferences or actions of the user across a Site to be remembered. Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of Site enhancement purposes including user preferences and customization choices when using a Site.
Whether a cookie is 'first' or 'third' party refers to the Site or domain placing that cookie. First-party cookies are cookies set by the website visited by the user, i.e. cookies set by www.reifyhealth.com and www.studyteamapp.com. Third-party cookies are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user: i.e. cookies which are set by websites other than our Sites. If a user visits the Site, and a company that is not Reify sets a cookie through it, this would be a third-party cookie.
Please use the table above to make informed choices about what is stored on your device in terms of profiling. You can at any time change or revoke your consent.
Most web browsers and devices are set to accept cookies by default. However, you can choose to disable cookies by updating your browser or device settings to remove or reject cookies (e.g. cookies may be disabled by following the instructions provided by browser, which are usually located within the "Help", "Preferences", or "Settings" menus). In case you wish to delete any cookies that are already on your device, please refer to the help, support, history, or tools area on your browser for instructions on how to do so.
Please be aware that choosing to remove or reject cookies, or limiting the use of other similar technologies, could affect your access to the Sites and their functionality. To find out more about cookies, please see http://www.youronlinechoices.eu or www.allaboutcookies.org, both of which contain further information about cookies, how they work and the choices that can be made by the User.
