Cookies Policy

Our Cookies Policy explains what cookies are, how we use cookies, how third parties we may partner with may use cookies on our website, your choices regarding cookies and further information about cookies.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of text sent by your web browser by a website you visit. A cookie file is stored in your web browser and allows the Service or a third-party to recognize you and make your next visit easier and the Service more useful to you.

Each cookie falls within one of the three following categories:

Essential cookies

Essential cookies (First Party Cookies) are sometimes called “strictly necessary” as without them we cannot provide the functionality that you need to use the Services. For example, essential cookies help remember your preferences as you navigate through the services.

Analytics cookies

These cookies track information about visits to the Services so that we can make improvements and report our performance. For example: analyse Agent and End-User behaviour so as to provide additional functionality or suggest certain activities. These cookies collect information about how visitors use the services, which site or page the user came from, the number of each user’s visits and how long a user stays on the services. We might also use analytics cookies to test new features to see how users react to them.

Functionality or preference cookies

During your interaction with the services, cookies are used to remember information you have entered or choices you make (such as your username, language or your region) within the services. They also store your preferences when personalizing the services to optimize your use of Zendesk, for example, your preferred language. These preferences are remembered, through the use of the persistent cookies, and the next time you use the Services you will not have to set them again.
