What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files stored by your browser as you browse the internet. They can be used to collect, store, and share information about your activities across websites, including on TheraHive Platform. Cookies also allow us to remember things about your visits to TheraHive Platform, like your preferred language, and to make the Platform easier to use.
The type of cookies we use
There are different types of cookies that we use:
“Persistent Cookie” is stored as a file on your computer and it remains there when you close your web browser. This cookie is used to improve your experience of using the website, for example, to store your preferences for your next visit to our website. This cookie is activated again once you visit the website that created that particular cookie. A persistent cookie remains in the browser's subfolder for the duration period set within the cookie's file.
“Session Cookies” is only stored temporarily on your computer during your web session. Session cookies are temporary and deleted from your machine when you close your web browser. This cookie is used to help us track internet usage and other information about an individual’s online activity.
“First party Cookies” are cookies that belong to us and that we place on your device through our website. The function of this type of cookie is to retain your preferences for our website. These cookies may be either Session or Persistent cookies.
“Third-party Cookies” are cookies that another party places on your device through our website. We may use these cookies to assist us by providing statistical and analytics information. An example of these is Google Analytics. These cookies are usually Persistent cookies.

Category of cookies
The cookies used on our Platform are categorized as follows:
Category 1 — Strictly Necessary/Technical/Security Cookies
These cookies are essential to enable you to browse around our website and use their features. Without these cookies, the Platform cannot be used as intended.

These cookies allow us or our third-party service providers to collect information about how you interact with the Platform and to enhance the user experience. For example, these cookies track what pages you go to the most. This data may be used to help optimize the Platform and make them easier for you to navigate the Platform. These cookies are also used to let affiliates know if you came to the Platform from an affiliate and if your visit resulted in the use or purchase of a product or service from us. These cookies collect anonymous information and do not identify you as an individual. All information these cookies collect is aggregated.
Category 3 — Functionality/Preferences Cookies
These cookies allow the Platform to remember choices you make while browsing. For instance, we may store your geographic location and your language choices so that we can show you our website localized for your area.

Authentication and security
- To log you into TheraHive Platform
- To protect your security
- To help detect and fight spam, abuse, and other activities that violate TheraHive’s agreements
For example, cookies help authenticate your access to TheraHive Services and prevent unauthorized parties from accessing your accounts.

For example, cookies help us test different versions of TheraHive to see which features or content users prefer, web beacons help us determine which email messages are opened, and cookies help us see how you interact with TheraHive’s Platform, like the links you click on.
You can opt out of some of these services through tools like the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
