Cookie Policy

Effective on March 1, 2021


At Along, we believe in being clear and open about how we collect and use data related to you. This Cookie Policy applies to any Along product, website, emails, or services that links to this policy or incorporates it by reference; it supplements our Privacy Policy and Website Privacy Notice. We use cookies and similar technologies, such as pixels or click-through URLs, in order to provide our services. This Cookie Policy explains the technologies that we use, why they are used, and your right to control their use.

 

What are third-party cookies and how does Gradient Learning use them?

We use a variety of cookies or tracking technologies to understand how visitors and users interact with our websites, emails, and other services.

 

Cookies. Cookies are small text files sent by your computer or device each time you visit along.org. They are stored in your browser and allow a website or a third party to recognize the browser on your device. The information does not usually directly identify you, but it can give you a more personalized experience. Other technologies, including identifiers associated with your device, and other software, are used for similar purposes. 

 

“Third-party cookies” are a type of cookie placed by someone other than Gradient Learning. These cookies may be persistent and gather browsing activity across multiple websites and across multiple sessions (“persistent cookies”). They are stored until you delete them, or until they expire after the time period set in that third-party cookie. Other third-party cookies may be temporary cookies stored on your device while you visit our site that expire when you close your browser (“session cookies”). The table below lists the third-party cookies and pixels that we use.

 

Pixels. We also use pixels: a type of technology placed on a website or within the body of an email for the purpose of tracking certain activity, such as views of a website or when an email is opened. Pixels are often used in combination with cookies. But turning off cookies, may not stop pixels from detecting a website visit or if you opened a message.

 

Click-through URL. If you receive newsletters, updates, or other information from us, our emails may use a “click-through URL” linked to content on our sites. When you click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our sites. We use this click-through data to help us understand how recipients respond to, or interact with, our emails. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, please do not click text or graphic links in emails you receive from us.

 

What cookies and similar technologies does Gradient Learning use?

You have choices and control over the cookies that you allow onto your browser. For example, your browser may offer settings that allow you to choose whether browser cookies are set and to delete them. For more information about these controls, visit your browser “help” resources. Below are the types of cookies and pixels that we use for Along and on along.org:

 

TYPE OF COOKIE

PURPOSE

Strictly Necessary Certain cookies are strictly necessary for the website to function and can’t be switched off in our systems. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site won’t work as a result.
Analytics

Analytics cookies collect information that allows us to understand how often you use our website, where you are accessing the website from, and the links and content on our website or in our emails that you interact with. We use these cookies to support our website and services and to improve their operation.

 

Since the number and names of cookies and pixels may change, this table may be updated from time to time and when we update it, we will note material changes in this notice. The expiration dates for our cookies below generally apply on a rolling basis or from the last time a user has interacted with the Along websites, emails, or other services.
