Cookies & Other Storage Technologies
Cookies are small pieces of text used to store information on web browsers. Cookies are used to store and receive identifiers and other information on computers, phones, and other devices. Other technologies, including data we store on your web browser or device, identifiers associated with your device, and other software, are used for similar purposes. In this policy, we refer to all of these technologies as “cookies”.
We may place cookies on your computer or device, and receive information stored in cookies, when you use the online Workplace product that we provide to our customers (the organization that you work for or which provisioned your account) which allows users to collaborate and share information at work, including the Workplace product, apps and related online services (together the "Workplace Services").
How long do cookies last?
All cookies have expiration dates that determine how long they stay in your browser or on your device and these can be split into two groups:
Session Cookies – these are temporary cookies that expire (and are automatically erased) whenever you close your browser.
Persistent Cookies – these usually have an expiration date and so stay in your browser until they expire, or until you manually delete them.
Cookies help us provide, protect, and improve the Workplace Services, such as by personalizing content and providing a safer experience.
In particular, we use them for the following purposes:
Type of Cookie
Security, site and product integrity
Features and services
For example: We store information in a cookie that is placed on your browser or device so you will see the service in your selected language.
For example: Cookies help us route traffic between servers and understand how quickly the Workplace Services load for different people. Cookies also help us record the ratio and dimensions of your screen and windows and to know whether you’ve enabled high contrast mode, so that we can render our sites and apps correctly.
Analytics and research
For example: Cookies can help us understand how people use the Workplace Services, analyze which parts of the Workplace Services people find most useful and engaging and identify features that could be improved.
What cookies do we use?
The cookies that we use include session cookies, which are deleted when you close your browser, and persistent cookies, which stay on your browser until they expire or you delete them.
We only set first party cookies in the Workplace Services. Third party cookies are not set in the Workplace Services.
Your browser or device may offer settings that allow you to choose whether browser cookies are set and to delete them. For more information about these controls, visit your browser or device's help material. Certain parts of the Workplace Services may not work properly if you have disabled browser cookie use.
