Cookies Policy

1. Overview

This cookies policy (the “Cookies Policy“) is provided in association with the TOON BOOM ANIMATION INC. (“TOON BOOM“, “we” or “us) privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”).

The purpose of this Cookies Policy is to explain cookies and similar technologies that may be used to track the activity of visitors to https://www.toonboom.com or any other websites operated by TOON BOOM (collectively, the “Sites“). Most importantly, the Cookies Policy explains your choices with respect to this technology, and how to exercise your choices.

 

2. What are cookies?

As described in the Privacy Policy, cookies are small data files that we or third parties may place on your device when you visit our Sites to mark that you have been there. Cookies and similar tracking technology, such as pixels or web beacons (which also use cookie technology), may be used to gather information about your device’s browsing activities on our Sites. This information may be used for a variety of purposes, including website administration, market research and interest based advertising.

 

3. What are the different types of cookies?

In this section, we will provide a brief overview of the different types of cookies. In particular, we will categorize cookies according to three sets of criteria:

  1. “essential cookies” or “non-essential cookies”
  2. “session cookies” or “persistent cookies”; and
  3. “first party cookies” or “third party cookies”.

3.1. Essential and non-essential cookies

Cookies may be classified as either “essential” or “non-essential”.

Essential Cookies are required for the basic functioning and display of a website, and include cookies that are either:

  1. used solely to carry out or facilitate the transmission of communications over a network; or
  2. strictly necessary to provide an online service (e.g. our website or a service on our website) which you have requested.

Non-Essential Cookies are any cookies that do not fall within the definition of essential cookies. There are three main sub-categories of non-essential cookies:

  1. Analytical cookies: Analytical (or performance) cookies track and gather data about a device’s activity on a website for analytical purposes. These cookies are not essential for our Sites or their functionality to work, but provide analysis that may be used to improve our website experience and business to suit the needs and preferences of our visitors.
  2. Marketing cookies: Marketing cookies record information about a device’s activity on a website for marketing or advertising purposes. We use marketing cookies on our Sites to generate data that may be used to serve advertisements, promotions and offers to your device as you browse websites including the Sites and other websites. Third parties also use marketing cookies on our Sites to gain similar information about your interests, which can then be used to serve advertisements that may be more relevant or interesting to you as you browse websites including the Sites and other websites.

3.2. Session and persistent cookies

Cookies can be classified as either “session” or “persistent”, depending on how long they remain after they are placed on your device.

Session cookies last for as long as you keep your browser open. They expire when you close your browser.

Persistent cookies expire at a fixed point in time or when you manually delete them from your browser, whichever occurs first.

3.3. First and third party cookies

Cookies can be classified as “first party” or “third party”, depending on who sets the cookie.

First party cookies are cookies placed on your device by our website domain.

Third party cookies are cookies placed on your device by third party website domains. Please note that our Sites often contain embedded elements that are operated by third parties, such as advertisements and social media features (for example, the Facebook “like” button). These embedded elements may set third party cookies on your device as you browse the Sites, even if you do not interact with these elements.

Only the website that places the cookie can read the information. If you require further information about cookies in general, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

 

4. What cookies are used on the Sites?

In this section, we list out the cookies that are active on our Sites in accordance with the criteria set out above. These cookies may change from time to time. While we will endeavour to keep this list current, there may be some delay before changes to the cookies on our Sites are reflected in the Cookies Policy. The broad categories of cookies set out in the list, however, will remain in effect regardless of changes to individual cookies.

In the previous sections, we have described cookie technology and what specific cookies are being used on our Sites. In this section, we will describe several methods that enable you to accept or reject cookies on our Sites.
