Cookies are small pieces of text stored by a website you visit in your browser and subsequently sent by your web browser in every request to the website. A cookie file is stored in your web browser and allows the Site or a third-party to recognize you and make your next visit easier and the Site more useful to you. Essentially, cookies are a user’s identification card for the SchooPed servers. Cookies allow SchooPed to serve you better and more efficiently, and to personalize your experience on our site. Web beacons, tags and scripts may be used in the Websites or in emails to help us to deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness and determine whether an email has been opened and acted upon. We may analyze or perform analysis based on the use of these technologies and generate reports on an individual and aggregated basis.
Cookies can be "persistent" or "session" cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to SchooPed or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by SchooPed when you return to our site or a partner site that uses our services. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
Essential cookies (First Party Cookies) are sometimes called "strictly necessary" as without them we cannot provide many services that you need on the Website. For example, essential cookies help remember your preferences as you move around the Website. Essential cookies also keep you logged in into a website. Without them the login functionality would not work.
Preference & Functionality Cookies
During your visit to the Website, cookies are used to remember information you have entered or choices you make (such as your username) on the Website. They also store your preferences when personalizing the Website to optimize your use of SchooPed. These preferences are remembered, through the use of the persistent cookies, and the next time you visit the Websites you will not have to set them again.
Analytics & Customization Cookies
These cookies track information about visits to the SchooPed website so that we can make improvements and report our performance. For example: analyze visitor and user behavior so as to provide more relevant content or suggest certain activities. They collect information about how visitors use the Website, which site the user came from, the number of each user’s visits and how long a user stays on the Website. We might also use analytics cookies to test new ads, pages, or features to see how users react to them.
SchooPed may also have some cookies for its own analytics i.e., analytics not part of Google Analytics. Such cookies help generate statistics and reports about visitors and their activities on the website.
There are a number of ways you can manage what cookies are set on your devices. Essential cookies, however, cannot be disabled. If you do not allow certain cookies to be installed, the website may not be accessible to you and/or the performance, features, or services of the website may be compromised.
You can also manage this type of cookie in the privacy settings on the web browser you are using. Please note that if you use your browser settings to block all cookies you may not be able to access parts of our or others' website.
Hopefully that has clarified things and if there is something that you aren’t sure whether you need or not it’s usually safer to leave cookies enabled in case it does interact with one of the features you use on our website. However, if you are still looking for more information, then you can contact us.
