Cookie Policy

This Cookie Policy is effective as of December 3, 2015.

This Cookie Policy explains use of cookies and other technologies on Imeela. We may amend this Policy at any time and all changes will be made on this Web page. The changes will take effect once they have been posted on the Website. Therefore, you should review this Policy on a regular basis. Capitalized terms, if not defined in this Cookie Policy, are defined in the Terms of Use or the Privacy Policy.

What they are

Cookies are small data files that are issued to your device when you visit a website and that store information about your use of a service. Pixel tags (which are also called clear GIFs, web beacons, or pixels) are little snippets of code or tiny images embedded on websites and in email that help us learn how you interact with our site and emails.

Why we use them

Imeela uses cookies and these other technologies to help recognise you as a repeat visitor, to improve the quality of our Services, and to make your browsing experience more meaningful.

How they work

When you visit Imeela, our web server sends a cookie to your device, which allows us to recognise your device (but not the specific person using it). By associating the identification numbers in the cookies with other account information when, for example, you log in to the Services, we know that the cookie information relates to your user account. Similarly, pixel tags on Imeela and in email communications help us identify how your device is being used to interact with Imeela materials. Some of the tags and cookies used by our Services are served by us, and some are served by trusted partners who are delivering services on our behalf.
Some examples of the types of cookies and other technologies Imeela uses:

Authentication

Imeela uses authentication cookies and similar technologies to tell us when you are logged into Imeela. This lets us show you personalized views related to your interests and connect you with projects you may already have backed.

Security

Cookies also help keep Imeela secure by enabling security features and allowing us to detect activities that might violate our rules and terms of service.
These cookies help protect your account from being accessed by any third party, alert you and us when your account is accessed, and provide capabilities that allow us to disable any active sessions you have (for example, when you log out or change your password).

Localization

Some cookies help us provide localized experiences — for example, by making sure you see Imeela in your preferred language.

Site features and services

Imeela uses cookies that provide functionality and help us deliver our products and services — for instance, by storing your preferences or by pre-filling the username field when you log in.

Performance

Performance cookies help us route traffic between servers and understand how Imeela is performing, so we can provide you with the best experience possible.

Analytics and research

Cookies and other technologies also help us to understand, improve, and research features and content on the Imeela site. For example, we may use cookies to understand how you are discovering projects or to determine which types of browsers or devices are accessing Imeela.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but, if you prefer, you can change your browser to prevent that or to notify you each time a cookie is set. You can also learn more about cookies by visiting www.allaboutcookies.org, which includes useful information on cookies and how to block cookies using different browsers. Blocking or deleting cookies may prevent you from taking full advantage of our Services. Since “Do Not Track” is not yet a precisely defined standard, we currently treat DNT:1 signals according to the same standards set out in our Privacy and Cookie Policies.
