Narrative Science (also referred to as “we”, “us”, and “our”) respects the online privacy of its customers and other visitors (“you”) to narrativescience.com (the “Website”).
A “cookie” is a small file created by a web server that can be stored on a user’s device for use either during a particular (“session” cookie) or future (“persistent” cookie) browsing session. This file may include information about internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), URLs of any referring or exited webpages, operating system, and/or date and time stamps.
First-party cookies are set by the website you are visiting, and they can only be read by that site. Certain features of our Website use session, persistent, and flash cookies.
“Session” cookies are temporarily stored on your hard drive and only last until they expire at the end of your browsing session or after a set time period. Our Website’s session cookies are required for log in to access secure areas of the Website and to process e-commerce transactions. We also leverage an anonymous user-id using Microsoft .NET technology to track unique users within a session without them logging in or otherwise identifying themselves. “Permanent” cookies remain stored on a user’s hard drive until they expire or are deleted by a user. We use permanent browser cookies on our Website for log in purposes and to recover certain preferences set for use by you during repeated visits to our Website.
We use local stored objects (or “flash” cookies) to collect and store information about your preferences and navigation to, from and on our Website. Flash cookies are not managed by the same browser settings as browser cookies. To learn how you can manage your Flash cookie settings, visit the Flash player settings page on Adobe’s website at: https://www.adobe.com/privacy/cookies.html.
