Updated: May 1, 2019

The Solidus Labs website (the “Website”) uses technologies such as cookies and scripts to make the website better and easier to use.  This Cookie Policy provides information about the cookies and similar technologies that we and our partners use on the Website and your choices with respect to such cookies and similar technologies.  To review the Website’s Privacy Policy, please click here.

Your Consent

By continuing to use the Website, you are consenting to our and our partners’ placement of cookies on your computer or other device and our use of similar technologies for the purposes described below.  You may withdraw your consent to cookies at any time by following the instructions in the section below titled “Your Choices,” but you will need to delete previously placed cookies using your web browser settings.  You may also opt out of certain third-party cookies using the links provided in the section below titled “How We Use Cookies and Similar Technologies.”

What are Cookies and Similar Technologies?

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer or other device.  Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, we or our partners may use cookies when you visit our Website.

First- and third-party cookies: A cookie may be referred to as a first- or third-party cookie depending on the domain placing the cookie.  First-party cookies are those set by a website, such as us and our Website, that is being visited by the user at the time.  We do not use first-party cookies on the Website at this time.  Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user, such as by one of our partners, as described below.  If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.

Persistent cookies: These cookies remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie.  They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created a particular cookie.

Session cookies: These cookies allow website operators, like us, to link the actions of a user during a browser session.  A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when the browser window is closed.  Session cookies are created temporarily.  Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

Web beacons, tags, pixels, clear gifs, JavaScript, and links in emails:  The Website or the emails that you receive from us may use an application known as a “web beacon” (also known as a “tag,” “pixel,” or “clear gif”) and similar technologies.  A web beacon is a string of HTML or JavaScript code embedded in a website or email that provides a method for transferring data to a company’s servers.  For example, it may load a single-pixel image that permits us or our partners to generate a record of your visit and set or read cookies.  This allows us to understand the features you use or the pages you visit on our Website and whether you have opened a particular email.  Similarly, clicking the links in our emails may generate a record that you have read the email and clicked on the link.

Local storage: We may store data within your web browser’s local storage for purposes similar to those used for cookies.  When you delete or clear cookies from your browser, you will not necessarily delete the data stored in local storage on your computer.
