What are cookies
A cookie is a small text file that is stored in your web browser that allows Vizbii or a third party to recognize you. Cookies might be used for the following purposes:
- (i) to enable certain functions;
- (ii) to provide analytics;
- (iii) to store your preferences; and

Cookies can either be session cookies or persistent cookies. A session cookie expires automatically when you close your browser. A persistent cookie will remain until it expires or you delete your cookies. Expiration dates are set in the cookies themselves; some may expire after a few minutes while others may expire after multiple years. Cookies placed by the website you’re visiting are sometimes called “first party cookies,” while cookies placed by other companies are sometimes called “third party cookies.”
When you use and access the Service, we may place a number of cookies in your web browser.
Each cookie serves one of four different purposes:
- Essential cookies. These first party cookies allow you to use a feature of the Service, such as: staying logged in, prevent fraudulent use of user accounts, or offer Service features.
- Analytical cookies. Allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and see how visitors move around the Service when using it. This helps us improve the way the Service works. Analytics cookies may either be first party cookies or third party cookies.
- Functionality cookies. Used to recognize you when you return to the Service. This enables us to personalize our content for you, greet you by name, and remember your preferences such as: language preference.
- Targeting cookies. Record your visit to the Service, the pages you have visited, and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make the Service and the more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.
In addition to our own cookies, we may also use various third-party cookies to report usage statistics of the Service and refine marketing efforts. You can find out more about each cookie by viewing our current Cookie list. We update this list quarterly, so there may be additional cookies that aren’t yet listed.
What are your choices regarding cookies
If you don’t like the idea of cookies or certain types of cookies, you can change your browser’s settings to delete cookies that have already been set and to not accept new cookies. To learn more about how to do this, visit the help pages of your browser.
Please note, however, that if you delete cookies or refuse to accept them, you might not be able to use some or all of the features we offer. You may not be able to log in, store your preferences, and some of our pages might not display properly.
Other user tracking technologies
We use additional technologies to help track user activities and preferences. For example, we use web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags or web bugs). Web beacons are tiny graphics (about the size of period) with a unique identifier that are embedded invisibly on web pages or emails. They are used to track user activities and communicate with cookies. You cannot opt out of web beacons used in web pages, but you can limit their use by opting out of the cookies they interact with. You can opt out of web beacons used in emails by setting your email client to render emails in text mode only. Finally, we use local storage to facilitate certain functions, but we do not retain the data captured via local storage.
