What is a cookie and what data does it collect?
A cookie is a small piece of data that a website stores on your device when you visit the website, typically containing information about the website itself, a unique identifier that allows the website to recognize your web browser when you return, additional data that serves the purpose of the cookie, and the lifespan of the cookie itself.
Cookies are used to enable certain features (such as logging in), to track website usage (such as website analytics), to store your user settings (such as time zone or notification preferences), and to personalize your content (such as preferred advertising, language). Cookies set by the website you are visiting are normally referred to as “first-party cookies”, and typically only track your activity on that particular website. Cookies set by other websites and companies are called “third-party cookies” and can be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service.
In addition to cookies, our Website may use other technologies, such as web beacons or pixel tags, as described below, to collect information automatically.
Web beacons (which are also known as pixel tags and clear GIFs) are clear image pixels embedded invisibly on webpages or within HTML formatted emails. Pixel tags are used to demonstrate that a webpage was accessed or that certain content was viewed. We may use web beacons to measure the success of a marketing campaign or engagement with our emails and to compile statistics about usage of the Website, so that we can manage our content more effectively.
Please see the Information We Collect through our Website section in the Evolv Privacy Notice for detail regarding the data collected by our website.
Types of cookies and how we use them:
Essential cookies are necessary for operating a website, enabling core features like user logins, account management, shopping carts and payment processing. We use essential cookies to enable certain functions on our Websites, products, and services.
Performance cookies are used in the tracking of how you use a website during your visit. This information may be deidentified and aggregated with information tracked across all site users to help companies understand visitor usage patterns, protect the security of the website, prevent fraud, identify and diagnose problems or errors their users may encounter, and make better strategic decisions in improving a website. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visiting (first-party) or by third-party services. We use performance cookies on our Websites for the purposes described above.
Functionality cookies are used in collecting information about your device and any settings you may configure on the website you’re visiting (like language and time zone settings). With this information, websites can recognize you as a unique visitor and provide you with customized, enhanced or optimized content and services. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visiting (first-party) or by third-party service. We use functionality cookies on our Websites for the purposes described above.
Advertising cookies are used to deliver advertising more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see a certain advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by third-party advertising networks with our permission. They remember that you have visited a website and may share this information with other organizations such as advertisers. As of the date of this Cookie Notice, we do not use this type of cookie. We use functionality cookies on our Websites for the purposes described above.
Third-party cookies on our site
We may utilize third-party tools on our Websites—for example, analytics providers and content partners. We grant these third parties access to selected information to perform specific tasks on our behalf. They may also set third-party cookies in order to deliver the services they are providing. Third-party cookies can be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service.
If you browse websites from multiple devices, you may need to update your settings on each individual device.
Although some cookies can be blocked with little impact on your experience of a website, blocking all cookies may mean you are unable to access certain features and content across the sites you visit.

Do Not Track
There are different ways to prevent tracking online activities. Some web browsers may allow you to enable a do-not-track feature that alerts the websites you visit that you do not want your online activities to be tracked. Our Website may not recognize or react in response to do-not-track signals. At present, no generally accepted standards exist on how companies must respond to do-not-track signals. In the event a final standard is established, we will assess and provide an appropriate response to these signals.
If you have further questions or concerns, please contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to your inquiries as soon as is practicable and within the time periods provided by applicable and relevant laws.
