When you visit or access our websites, or when you interact or engage with our content (“Services”), we use (and/or authorize 3rd parties to use) web beacons, cookies, pixel tags, scripts, tags, API and other technologies (“Tracking Technologies“).
The Tracking Technologies allow us to automatically collect information about you and your online behavior, as well as your device (for example your computer or mobile device), in order to enhance your navigation on our Services, improve our Services performance and customize your experience on our Services. We may also use this information to collect statistics about the usage of our Services, perform analytics, deliver content which is tailored to your interests and administer services to our Users, advertisers, publishers, customers and partners.
We also allow third parties to collect information about you through Tracking Technologies for the same purposes mentioned above.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files (composed only of letters and numbers) that a web server places on your computer or mobile device when you visit a webpage. Most web pages contain elements from multiple web domains so when you visit https://logstail.com (or other Threatrap Websites), your browser may receive cookies from several sources. This may includes also 3rd parties that we have hired to provide services on our behalf, such as site analytics, site acceleration, or ad targeting.
Types of Cookies Used by Threatrap
Cookies are Storing Tracking Technologies and we store them when you visit or access our Services (for example when you are visiting our websites) – these are called “First Party Tracking Technologies”. In addition, Tracking Technologies are stored by other third parties (for example our analytics service providers, business partners and advertisers) – these are called “Third Party Tracking Technologies”.
Both types of Tracking Technologies may be stored either for the duration of your visit on our Services or for repeat visits.
What types of Tracking Technologies do we use?
There are five main types of Tracking Technologies:
- Strictly necessary Technologies –
Strictly Necessary cookies are necessary for the operation of our Website (s). These cookies are essential in helping you to move around our Website and use the features, such as accessing secure areas of the Website or use our Services.
These technologies are essential to enable you to login, navigate around and use the features of our Services, or to provide a service requested by you. These Tracking Technologies can be also used for security and integrity reasons – e.g. for detecting policy violation. We may also use Strictly Necessary cookies to:
- Remember the services you selected when you get to the payment page
- Provide access to private areas of our Website
- Remember previously entered information so it will not be lost during a refresh of the page.
We may not need to obtain your consent in order to use this type of cookies.
- Functionality Technologies
These Tracking Technologies allow our Services to remember your preferences (such as your language) and provide enhanced and personalized experience. We may use Functionality cookies to:
- Remember settings you have applied such as layout, colors, font sizes and page backgrounds.
- Detect if you have already seen a pop-up to ensure it doesn’t get shown to you again.
- Process a request from a user to submit a forum post.
- For user authentication (to remember that you are logged-in).
If you delete Functionality cookies, preferences or settings you selected will not be retained for later visits.
- Performance Technologies
These Tracking Technologies collect information about your online activity (for example the duration of your visit on our Services), including behavioral data and content engagement metrics. We utilize these cookies to analyze how our visitors use our Website and to monitor our Website performance. They tell us how people use each page, which ones are most commonly viewed, or whether any errors occurred. This allows us to provide a high-quality experience and quickly identify then fix any issues that arise.
- Marketing or Advertising Technologies
These Tracking Technologies are used to deliver tailored offers and advertisements to you, based on your personal interests, as well as to perform email marketing campaigns. They can also be used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. Marketing or Advertising cookies help us make sure that the ads you see on our Websites are relevant to you and your interests. Targeting cookies may be placed on your device by our 3rd party service providers to remember you have visited the Website in order to provide you with ads more relevant to you.
