Cookie Policy

CINOA uses cookies, in combination with pixels, local storage objects, and similar devices (collectively, “cookies” unless otherwise noted) to distinguish you from other users on the CINOA site. This helps us provide you with a good experience, improve our service, and to personalize ads and content to you.

This cookie policy describes the types of cookies we use and our purpose for using them.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file that is stored on your browser or the hard drive of your device. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuses cookies, CINOA will issue cookies as soon as you visit the site.

Key Concepts

First and third party cookies: whether a cookie is “first” or “third” party refers to the domain placing the cookie.

  • First-party cookies: are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g. cookies placed by CINOA)
  • Third-party cookies: are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.

Persistent cookies: these cookies remain on a user’s device for a period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.

Session cookies: these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
