What is a cookie?

When does Teilo place cookies?
What types of cookies does Teilo use?
We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to Teilo 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 Teilo when you return to our site. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
What are cookies used for?
Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit Teilo, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with Teilo faster and more secure. Additionally, cookies allow us to bring you advertising both on and off the Teilo sites.
What is Do Not Track (DNT)?
DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been working with industry groups, Internet browsers, technology companies, and regulators to develop a DNT technology standard. While some progress has been made, it has been slow. No standard has been adopted to this date. As such, Teilo does not generally respond to “do not track” signals.
How are cookies used for advertising purposes?
Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting. To understand and improve our service, and know when content has been shown to you. Ads served by Teilo may also set third party cookies.
If you have visited Teilo on a browser, Teilo may still continue to log your interaction with our services on that browser for up to 30 days in order to generate usage analytics for our services.
Unless you clear these cookies from your browser, we may use this information to:
- provide more relevant, interest-based advertising

- improve our products
What third-party cookies does Teilo use?
Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information.
What to do if you don’t want cookies to be set or want them to be removed?
If you do not want to receive cookies, you can also change your browser settings on your computer or other device you’re using to access our services. If you use Teilo without changing your browser settings, we’ll assume that you’re happy to receive all cookies on the Teilo website.
