What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files containing small amounts of information that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information. Cookies help us to remember things about your visit to our Website, such as your preferred language and other choices/settings and generally make the site easier for you to use. They may also be used to deliver advertisements that are relevant to you.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Unqork) 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 (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other
We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites to operate, and we refer to these as "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies. We use these essential Cookies to:
- log you into our Website
- to protect your security
- to help us detect and fight spam, abuse and other activities that violate Unqork’s user agreements and term; and
- to authenticate your access to the Website.
Other cookies remember information about your browser and your preferences. For example, cookies help us remember your preferred language or the country that you are in. We can then provide you with content in your preferred language without having to ask you each time you visit our Website.
Cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Website. For example, these types of cookies help us test different versions and features of our Website to see which particular features or content users prefer.
To help us better understand how people use our Websites, certain third parties serve cookies through our Websites for analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below. We don’t release the information collected from our own cookies to any third parties, other than to our service providers who assist us in these cookie activities.
The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Websites and the purposes they perform are described in the table below:
|Type of cookie||Who serves these cookies||How to refuse|
|Essential website cookies: These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Websites and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas.||Unqork|

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage the Website service by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages or in emails and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Websites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects?
The Adobe Flash Player (and similar applications) use technology to remember settings, preferences and usage similar to browser cookies but these are managed through a different interface than the one provided by your Web browser. This technology creates locally stored objects that are often referred to as "Flash cookies." Unqork does not use Flash cookies.
How can I control cookies?
You can exercise your preferences with some third party cookies by clicking on the appropriate opt-out links provided in the cookie table above.
In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ . For further information on cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your device and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org. (or if located in the European Union, by clicking here: http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/). Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic advertisements.
We do not control any of the above opt-out links and are not responsible for any choices you make using these mechanisms or the continued availability or accuracy of these mechanisms.
How often will you update this Cookie Notice?
We may update this Cookie Notice from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Policy on our Website with a new effective date. If we make a material change to this Policy, we will take reasonable steps to notify you in advance of the planned change.
