What Are Cookies?
Cookies are pieces of data that websites you visit can set on your browser and device’s hard drive. The term may also be used to refer to other technologies that, when employed in a certain manner, may be able to track the online behavior of a user.
Cookies can be set by the website owner (in this case, Project Whitecard). These are called “first-party cookies.” They can also be set by third parties other than Project Whitecard, in which case they are called “third-party cookies.” Third-party cookies enable third-party features or functionality (e.g., advertising, interactive content, and analytics) to be provided on or through the website. The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognize your device both when you visit the website in question and also when you visit certain other websites.
Browser Cookies are used by Project Whitecard primarily to:
Identify specific users and track whether they are logged in (Authentication).
Customize site content and remember site preferences.
There are a number of ways to manage browser cookies on your device. Most major browsers offer choices for whether and how you receive future cookies and for deleting cookies already on your device. Which browser cookies are on your device will depend on which browser you use to access Project Whitecard services. Here are links to information from some of the larger browsers about how you can control your browser cookies: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer.
Beacons, Pixel Tags, and Clear Gifs are all terms for similar technology that often works in the same way. These small strings of (software) code track events such as when a user visits a page or opens an email. They are used by Project Whitecard to measure the effectiveness of our email campaigns, deliver more relevant content, and manage advertising for Project Whitecard’s games. In many instances, beacons, pixel tags, and clear gifs work in conjunction with cookies to function properly, so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

These cookies help us to understand the effectiveness of our websites, services, and/or marketing campaigns.
