3.2 Cookies

Like many online services, we use cookies to collect information. Cookies are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the website. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our website. This type of information is collected to make the website more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs.

Our website uses the following types of cookies for the purposes set out below:

Type of cookie

Purpose

Essential Cookies

These cookies are essential to provide you with services available through our website and to enable you to use some of its features. For example, they allow you to log in to secure areas of our website and help the content of the pages you request load quickly. Without these cookies, the services that you have asked for cannot be provided, and we only use these cookies to provide you with those services.

Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow our website to remember choices you make when you use our website, such as remembering your language preferences, remembering your login details and remembering the changes you make to other parts of our website that you can customize. The purpose of these cookies is to provide you with more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-enter your preferences every time you visit our website.

Statistical cookies

Targeted and advertising Cookies

These cookies track your browsing habits to enable us to show advertising that is more likely to be of interest to you. These cookies use information about your browsing history to group you with other users who have similar interests. Based on that information, and with our permission, third-party advertisers can place cookies to enable them to show adverts, which we think, will be relevant to your interests while you are on third party websites.


You can disable cookies that remember your browsing habits and target advertising at you by visiting http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices. If you choose to remove targeted or advertising cookies, you will still see adverts but they may not be relevant to you. Even if you do choose to remove cookies by the companies listed at the above link, not all companies that serve online behavioral advertising are included in this list, and so you may still receive some cookies and tailored adverts from companies that are not listed.

These cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” button on our website or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social networking website such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+.

For other products and services, we collect store information about the environment, settings and other key attributes to be able to resolve issues and understand usage patterns in log files.

3.4 Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to help analyze how users use our website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic.

  • The website the user visited before accessing our website

Huddly may use the information from Google Analytics to improve our website.

Further, Huddly has enabled the IP address anonymisation feature (IP masking) in Google Analytics. The anonymisation takes place as early as possible when data is received by Google Analytics, before the information is stored and further processed by Google. The anonymised IP addresses are processed at an aggregate level, ie all data is collected and processed at a group-level; accordingly, the information cannot be used to identify an individual user.

The information collected by Google Analytics is stored on Google servers in the United States. Information received by Google is subject to Google's privacy policy.

For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en

Google Analytics use the following cookies:

  • ‘ga’ enables the service to distinguish one user from another and lasts for 2 years
