Cookie Policy

Welcome to COOLS.

This policy forms part of the COOLS Agreement outlined in our Terms of Service.

Cookies and Tracking Technologies. A cookie is a small element of data that a web site can store on your system. You can configure your browser to accept or reject cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. If you reject all cookies, you will not be able to use the COOLS products or services that require you to “sign in,” and you may not be able to take full advantage of our services. We also employ a software technology called clear gifs (or web beacons or web bugs or tracking pixel), that allows us to better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.  The use of cookies by our third party tracking partners is not covered by our Policy. We do not have access or control over these cookies. Our partners use session ID cookies to support our site functionality such as web analytics reporting and affiliate programs.

The COOLS uses its own cookies for a number of purposes, including to:

  • Access your information when you “sign in”
  • Keep track of preferences you specify while you are using our services
  • Display the most appropriate advertising banners, based on your interests and activity on the COOLS
  • Estimate and report The Cool’s total audience size and traffic
    conduct research to improve our content and services.

A few important things you should know about cookies are that:

  • We offer certain features that are available only through the use of cookies.
  • We use cookies to help identify you and maintain your signed-in status.
  • If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
  • Most cookies are “session cookies,” meaning that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of a session.
  • You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although doing so may interfere with your use of some of our sites or services.
  • You may encounter cookies from third parties on certain pages of the sites that we do not control. For example, if you view a web page created by another user there may be a cookie placed by that web page, or our affiliate partners.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

This Policy has been drawn up in the English language. In case of discrepancies between the English version of this Agreement and any translation, the English version shall prevail.

Effective date: December 14, 2015
