Cookie Policy

Effective: February 01, 2021. Last Revised: February 01, 2021

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on your computer device, browser, or mobile device each time you use the site. When a cookie is stored on your device or browser, a unique identification is assigned to you so that the website that stored it can remember you and track your visits whenever you interact with the website. A “Web Beacon”, also known as a web bug, pixel tag, or clear GIFs, is an often-transparent object embedded in a web page that transmits information back to the web server, including counting users who have visited particular pages. Cookies, web beacons, and other similar technologies are usually used in combination. When we refer to “cookies” in this Privacy Policy, we are also referring to web beacons and other similar technologies.

1. Seocatly Cookies

Seocatly uses cookies and similar technologies to help understand how the Website is being used. In turn, Seocatly can improve the Services, improve users’ experience, and recognize returning users and remember that users’ preferences on our Services.

Users who do not wish for cookies to be placed on their computer device, browser, or mobile device can disable cookies using the tools that their browser or device (computer or mobile) provides. It is important to know that disabling cookies may affect the features and functionality of our Services. Seocatly uses two types of cookies, session and persistent:

  • Session Cookies. Also known as ‘Essential’ Cookies, Session Cookies are essential to enable and provide you with features available on our Services. While using the Services, Session Cookies are stored temporarily and are erased once the user closes the web browser or logs out of the Services. These cookies are important for serving content correctly, authenticating users, preventing fraudulent use, monitoring server load, and other technical matters essential to the performance of Seocatly.
  • Persistent Cookies. Also known as ‘Stored’ Cookies, Persistent Cookies allow our Services to remember the choices that you make when you use the Website, including remembering your login details, language preferences, website preferences, and your consent preferences. For example, if you have consented to the use of certain cookies on our Services, Seocatly will record your consent preference for the next time you visit the Website. Persistent Cookies that are stored on your computer will eventually expire once you stop visiting our Services and users may also delete these cookies with the tools provided by their browser or device (computer or mobile).

2. Analytics Cookies

On our behalf, Seocatly’s third party analytics partner, Google Analytics, uses analytics cookies to collect and analyze data for the purpose of monitoring, improving, and personalizing our Services. It is important to know that analytics cookies on our Services are persistent cookies used specifically for analytics.

We use Google Analytics to help better understand the traffic on the Services as well as the usage of our Services. For example, we may use Google Analytics to analyze and create aggregated data, such as the number of unique visitors to the Services. Aggregated data is non-personally identifiable information, such that it cannot be used to reasonably identify you as an individual. We encourage that you read the privacy policy of our analytics partner, Google Analytics, and opt-out if you do not want Google Analytics to collect information about you.

Google Analytics provides an IP anonymization (or IP masking) function that we have activated on Seocatly. With IP anonymization activated, IP addresses within member states of the European Union and countries party to the agreement on the European Economic Area will be shortened to a partial IP address before being sent to the USA. But on rare occasions, a full IP address will be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there before being stored. Overall, this means that IP addresses within the EU or EEA will never be complete or full when collected and stored to a Google server in the USA. Google Analytics does not merge your IP address data with other Google data.

3. Advertisers and Ad Network Cookies

Our ad partners and ad networks may place their own cookies or similar tracking technologies on your device or browser to collect information when ads are delivered to you on our Services. However, Seocatly does not provide them with or link them to your actual Seocatly account details and any cookies placed by advertisers are completely separate from cookies placed by Seocatly. This means Seocatly cannot see advertisers’ cookies and advertisers will not see Seocatly’s cookies. You may opt-out of several third-party ad servers’ and networks’ cookies simultaneously using tool created by the Network Advertising Initiative.
