What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Syntensor) are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies".
Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites. For more information on how these companies collect and use information on our behalf, please refer to their privacy policies:
We use first and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our website and web app to operate, and we refer to these as “necessary” cookies. Other first party cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience of Syntensor. This is described in more detail below.
The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Website and the purposes they perform are described below (please note that the specific cookies served may vary depending on the specific URL you visit).
