Does Tallysticks use cookies?

Yes. We use cookies and other technologies to ensure everyone who uses Tallysticks has the best possible experience. Cookies also help us keep your account safe. By continuing to visit or use our services, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes we describe in this policy.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file saved by the website onto your device that enables Tallysticks’ features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to the Tallysticks Platform and our sites generally, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device. Cookies also enable you to easily share content on Tallysticks and help us serve relevant ads to you.

When does Tallysticks place cookies?

We use cookies on our sites (such as tallysticks.io and app.tallysticks.io) and mobile applications. Any browser visiting these sites will receive cookies from us.

What types of cookies does Tallysticks use?

We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies.

A persistent cookie helps us recognise you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to Tallysticks 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 Tallysticks when you return to one of our sites.

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 recognise you when you visit Tallysticks, remember your preferences, and give you a personalised experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with Tallysticks faster and more secure. Finally, cookies allow us to bring you advertising both on and off the Tallysticks sites.

We use cookies to enable and support our security features, and to help us detect malicious activity and violations of our User Terms and Conditions.

Advertising

We may use cookies to show you relevant advertising both on and off the Tallysticks site. We may also use a cookie to learn whether someone who saw an ad later visited and took an action (e.g. downloaded a white paper or made a purchase) on the advertiser’s site. Similarly, our partners may use a cookie to determine whether we’ve shown an ad and how it performed, or provide us with information about how you interact with ads. We may also work with a partner to show you an ad on or off Tallysticks, such as after you’ve visited a partner’s site or application.

Performance, Analytics and Research

Cookies help us learn how well our site and application perform in different locations. We also use cookies to understand, improve, and research products, features, and services, including when you access Tallysticks from other websites, applications, or devices such as your work computer or your mobile device.

How are cookies used for advertising purposes?

If you are logged in on tallysticks.io, app.tallysticks.io or another Service that references this Cookie Policy or browsing a third party partner site of Tallysticks and one of our cookies on your device identifies you, your usage (such as your browsing behaviour) and log data (such as your IP address), will be associated by us with your account as noted in our Privacy Policy. We also use aggregate data from third parties and data from your profile and Tallysticks activity.

If you visit a Tallysticks website but logged out of your account, we may use third party cookies on a browser, in order to log your interaction on that browser for up to 730 days in order to generate usage analytics for our services or to promote our services on third party sites.

Unless you clear these cookies from your browser, we may use this information to:

• provide more relevant, interest-based advertising

Controlling cookies

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.
