What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text, image, data files, or tag code snippets containing small amounts of information that a Site – when visited by a user – asks your browser to store on your device in order to remember information about you. . Cookies are then sent back to the originating Site on each subsequent visit, or to another Site that recognizes that cookie.

  • Recommendations and Promotions: to assist with our promotional and marketing efforts.

Types of Cookies We Use

Origin. Cookies are referred to as “first-party” if they are placed by a Site that is visited and “third-party” if they are placed by a party other than the visited Site (such as an advertiser or analytics system).

Duration. Additionally, “session Cookies” are temporary and expire once you close your browser (or once your session ends). “Persistent Cookies” remain on your hard drive until you erase them, or your browser does, depending on the cookie’s expiration date.

Purpose. Cookies used by ExecOnline can be divided into four categories, depending on their intended purposes: Strictly Necessary Cookies, Performance Cookies, Functional Cookies, and Targeting Cookies.
