Below we explain how iAmSapien, our partners, and other third parties use these technologies, your privacy settings and the other options you have.
What are cookies, pixels, and local storage?
A pixel is a small amount of code on a web page or in an email notification. As many services do, we use pixels to learn whether you`ve interacted with certain web or email content. This helps us measure and improve our services and personalize your experience on iAmSapien.
Local storage is an industry-standard technology that allows a website or application to store information locally on your computer or mobile device. We use local storage to customize what we show you based on your past interactions with iAmSapien.
Why does iAmSapien use these technologies?
iAmSapien uses these technologies to deliver, measure, and improve our services in various ways. These uses generally fall into one of the following categories.
Authentication and security:
- To log you into iAmSapien.
- To protect your security.
- To help us detect and fight spam, abuse, and other activities that violate the iAmSapien Rules.
For example, these technologies help authenticate your access to iAmSapien and prevent unauthorized parties from accessing your account. They also let us show you appropriate content through our services.
To remember information about your browser and your preferences.
For example, cookies help us remember your preferred language or country that you are in. We can then provide you with iAmSapien content in your preferred language without having to ask you each time you visit iAmSapien. We can also customize content based on your country, such as showing you what topics are trending near you, or to withhold certain content based on applicable local laws.
Analytics and research:
To customize our services with more relevant content, like tailored trends, stories, ads, and suggestions for people to follow.
For example, local storage tells us which parts of your iAmSapien input you have viewed already so that we can show you the appropriate new content. Cookies can help us make smarter and more relevant suggestions about who you might enjoy following based on your visits to websites that have integrated iAmSapien buttons or widgets. Learn more about tailored suggestions and your privacy controls, which include your iAmSapien account settings.
To help us deliver ads, measure their performance, and make them more relevant to you based on criteria like your activity on iAmSapien and visits to our ad partners' websites.
Our third-party advertising providers, including Google Analytics for Display Advertisers, also use these technologies for marketing our services on our behalf, including the delivery of interest-based ads and measurement of their performance.
Where are these technologies used?
iAmSapien uses these technologies on our own websites and services and on other websites that have integrated our services. This includes our advertising and platform partners` websites and sites that use iAmSapien buttons or widgets. Third parties may also use these technologies, for example, when you interact with their content from within our services, like when you click a link or stream media on iAmSapien from a third-party service, and to help with the delivery of ads shown on and off of iAmSapien.
What are my privacy options?
For using cookies: You can modify your settings in most web browsers to accept or deny all cookies, or to request your permission each time a site attempts to set a cookie. Although cookies are not required for some parts of our services, iAmSapien may not work properly if you disable cookies entirely. For example, you cannot log into iAmSapien.com if you've disabled all cookie use.
How to Control Cookies:
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but provide controls that allow you to block or delete them. Instructions for blocking or deleting cookies in other browsers may be available in each browser's privacy or help documentation.
Certain features of iAmSapien services depend on cookies. Please be aware that if you choose to block cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use those features, and preferences that are dependent on cookies may be lost. If you choose to delete cookies, settings and preferences controlled by those cookies, including advertising preferences, may be deleted and may need to be recreated.
