SproutLoud does not sell any cookie data collected on any of our websites to any third-party aggregators and only uses data collected for the purposes described in this Cookie Statement.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by online service providers in order to (for example) make their websites or services work, or to work more efficiently, provide services through a website, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner or service provider (in this case, SproutLoud) are called “First Party Cookies”.
Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “Third Party Cookies”. Third Party Cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website or service you are using (such as advertising and analytics). The third parties that set these Third Party Cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website or service in question and also when it visits certain other websites or services.
Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites and Services to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Because these cookies are strictly necessary to deliver the Websites and/or Marketing Services, you cannot refuse them without impacting how our websites function.
Other cookies enable us and the third parties we work with to track and target the interests of visitors to our Websites, and we refer to these as “performance” cookies. These cookies may be refused. However, without these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable or impacted. We use performance cookies to tailor content and information that we may send or display to you and otherwise personalize your experience while interacting with our Websites and to otherwise improve the functionality of the Services we provide. We also enable our Users to employ cookies and similar tracking technologies in connection with their use of our Services in order to allow us and our Users to track their User Contacts and/or performance of the Services.
Cookies are deployed in three categories:
a.) The Engine Cookies in connection with the Engine used to deliver the Application Services to Users.
b.) SproutLoud Cookies on SproutLoud websites for visitors not in connection with the Services, Users or User Contacts
c.) Services Cookies in connection with the Services, rented or purchased from SproutLoud by the User for the purpose of hosting User content for delivery to User Contacts or visitors to User websites.
This is described in more detail below.

Strictly Necessary Cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our application.
Strictly Necessary Cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our Website. We only use first-party cookies here.
Performance Cookies. These cookies are used to recognize you when you return to our Website. This enables us to personalize our content for you and remember your preferences, but are non-essential to the performance of the Website.
Analytics & Advertising Cookies. These cookies collect information about how users got to our site as well as how they access and move through the Website. We use this information in either aggregate form to help us to improve the way our Website works, to personalize our Website to your interests, or to gather information on our marketing efforts.
Depending on the lifetime cycle, the cookies might be: Persistent Cookies will remain stored on your device until deleted or until they reach their expiry date, and Session Cookies that are temporary and removed at once from your device after your web browser closes.
The specific cookies, pixels, or other technologies that will be set on a User’s website may not be all inclusive to this policy – as Users may add their own cookies irrespective of SproutLoud technology. User Contacts should therefore review the relevant User’s privacy notice and cookie disclosures for further information about the specific types of cookies and other tracking technologies used on the website they are visiting. It is the obligation of the User to publish these disclosures as necessary and in accordance with local laws. With regard to Services offered by SproutLoud to Users, the following cookies may apply:
User email campaigns
We automatically place tracking pixels and tracking information in every email sent by Us or our Users. These identifiers enable us and our Users to recognize when Visitors or User Contacts have opened an email or clicked certain links. These technologies record each subscribers email address.IP address, date, and time associated with each open and click for a campaign. We use this data to create reports about how an email campaign performed and what actions subscribers took. As these are not cookies, you cannot “opt-out” of this functionality.

Services Cookies: Some Users may have enabled a cookie website preference tool if mandatory according to their local regulations. Otherwise, you may be able to disable cookies through your browser controls.
Disabling Most Interest Based Advertising: Most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of Interest Based Advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com.
Do Not Track: Some Internet browsers – like Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari – include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals.

SproutLoud takes privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard.
