Cookie Policy

At THINK., we believe in being clear and open about how we collect and use data related to you. In the spirit of transparency, this policy provides detailed information about how and when we use cookies. This cookie policy applies to any THINK. product or service that links to this policy or incorporates it by reference.

 

Does THINK. use cookies?

Yes. As described in Section 1.4 of our Privacy Policy, we use cookies and other technologies to ensure everyone who uses THINK. has the best possible experience. Cookies also help us keep your account safe. By continuing to visit or use our services, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes we describe in this policy.

 

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables THINK. features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to THINK. and our sites generally, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device. Cookies also enable you to easily share content on THINK. and help us serve relevant ads to you.

 

When does THINK. place cookies?

We use cookies on our sites (such as thinkplatform.eu). Any browser visiting these sites will receive cookies from us. 

 

What types of cookies does THINK. use?

We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to THINK. or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by THINK. when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our services (for example, our sharing or job application buttons). Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).

 

What are cookies used for?

Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit THINK., remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with THINK. faster and more secure. Additionally, cookies allow us to bring you advertising both on and off the THINK. site, and bring customized features to you through THINK. plugins such as our “Share” button.

What is Do Not Track (DNT)?

DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been working with industry groups, Internet browsers, technology companies, and regulators to develop a DNT technology standard. While some progress has been made, it has been slow. No standard has been adopted to this date. As such, THINK. does not generally respond to “do not track” signals.

 

How are cookies used for advertising purposes?

Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers, understand and improve our service, and know when content has been shown to you. Note: Because your web browser may request advertisements and beacons directly from third party ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set third party cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site. Ads served by THINK. may also set third party cookies.

If you are logged in on thinkplatform.eu, or another Service that references this Cookie Policy or browsing a third party partner site of THINK. and one of our cookies on your device identifies you, your usage (such as your browsing behavior) and log data (such as your IP address), will be associated by us with your account as noted in Sections 1.3 and 1.4 of our Privacy Policy. 

If you are a THINK. member but logged out of your account on a browser, THINK. may still continue to log your interaction with our services on that browser for up to 30 days in order to generate usage analytics for our services, which analytics we may share in aggregate form with our advertising customers.

Unless you clear these cookies from your browser, we may use this information to:

  • help website and app owners understand how visitors engage with their sites or apps
  • detect and defend against fraud and other risks to protect users and partners
  • improve our products

 

What third-party cookies does THINK. use?

Our cookie table lists some of the third party cookies on our sites. Please note that the names of cookies, pixels and other technologies may change over time. Please also note that companies and other organizations that sponsor pages on THINK. may use cookies, pixels or other technologies on their THINK.  pages to learn about your interest in them.

 

Controlling cookies

Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information.
