What types of cookies do we use?
There are a number of different types of cookies, however, our website uses. The usage of cookies differs between the marketing website (which you're on right now) and the Affilimate web application (which you need to sign in to). Both cookie usages will be described below.
- Functionality – Affilimate uses these cookies to recognize you are on the website and remember your previously selected preferences. These could include what language you prefer and location you are in. A mix of first-party and third-party cookies are used.
- User experience and analytics – These cookies collect information about your visit to our website, the content you viewed, the features you used, the links you followed and information about your browser, device, and your IP address.
- Marketing - If you opted-in to cookies on this website, some limited aspects of this data may be shared with third parties for advertising purposes. We may also share online data collected through cookies with our advertising partners (for example, if we are running an ad campaign and we need to track that you indeed arrived at affilimate.com through that campaign). This means that when you visit another website, you may be shown advertising based on your browsing patterns on our website. You may, however, opt-out from that using the cookie bar.
