Cookie Policy

Overview

We use cookies to help improve your experience of BlueEarner (https://blueearner.com). This cookie policy is part of our privacy policy, and covers the use of cookies between your device and our site. We also provide basic information on third-party services we may use, who may also use cookies as part of their service, though they are not covered by our policy.

If you don’t wish to accept cookies from us, you should instruct your browser to refuse cookies from https://blueearner.com, with the understanding that we may be unable to provide you with some of your desired content and services.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of data that a website stores on your device when you visit, typically containing information about the website itself, a unique identifier that allows the site to recognize your web browser when you return, additional data that serves the purpose of the cookie, and the lifespan of the cookie itself.

Cookies are used to enable certain features (e.g. logging in), to track site usage (e.g. analytics), to store your user settings (e.g. timezone, notification preferences), and to personalize your content (e.g. advertising, language).

Cookies set by the website you are visiting are normally referred to as “first-party cookies,” and typically only track your activity on that particular site. Cookies set by other sites and companies (i.e. third parties) are called “third-party cookies,” and can be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service.

 

Types of cookies and how we use them

Essential cookies

Essential cookies are crucial to your experience of a website, enabling core features like user logins, account management, shopping carts, and payment processing. We use essential cookies to enable certain functions on BlueEarner.

Performance cookies

Performance cookies are used in the tracking of how you use a website during your visit, without collecting personal information about you. Typically, this information is anonymous and aggregated with information tracked across all site users, to help companies understand visitor usage patterns, identify and diagnose problems or errors their users may encounter, and make better strategic decisions in improving their audience’s overall website experience. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visiting (first-party) or by third-party services. We use performance cookies on BlueEarner.

Functionality cookies

Functionality cookies are used in collecting information about your device and any settings you may configure on the website you’re visiting (like language and timezone settings). With this information, websites can provide you with customized, enhanced or optimized content and services. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visiting (first-party) or by third-party service. We use functionality cookies for selected features on BlueEarner.

Targeting/advertising cookies

Targeting/advertising cookies are used in determining what promotional content is more relevant and appropriate to you and your interests. Websites may use them to deliver targeted advertising or to limit the number of times you see an advertisement. This helps companies improve the effectiveness of their campaigns and the quality of content presented to you. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visiting (first-party) or by third-party services. Targeting/advertising cookies set by third-parties may be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service. We use targeting/advertising cookies on BlueEarner.

 

Third-party cookies on BlueEarner

At BlueEarner, we may work with third-party companies and individuals on our website, such as analytics providers and content partners. These third parties are given access to specific information to complete tasks on our behalf, and may also use third-party cookies to provide their services. It’s important to note that these cookies can be used to track your activity on other websites that use the same third-party service. As we don’t have control over these cookies, they aren’t covered by BlueEarner’s cookie policy.

Our third-party privacy commitment

Before partnering with any third-party providers, we carefully review their privacy policies to ensure their practices align with our own. We’ll never knowingly include third-party services that compromise or violate our users’ privacy.
