Introduction

This cookie policy (“Cookie Policy”) describes the cookies and other technologies used by Minerva Analytics, Inc. (“Minerva”, “We”, “Us”, or “Our”) on Our sites that post this policy (collectively, “Sites”).
We have created this Cookie Policy to explain what these technologies are and why We use them, as well as your rights to control Our use of them. This Cookie Policy forms part of Our Privacy Policy.
Please note that We include references in this Cookie Policy to other websites that provide information about cookies and about opt-out choices. We are not affiliated with those sites or the third parties that operate them. We are not responsible for the content on those sites, and provide links to them for information and convenience only.

What Is a “Cookie”?

We often place a small file known as a “cookie” on Your computer's hard drive. A cookie may contain information that allows Us to track Your path through the Sites and to determine whether You have visited Us before. However, unless You provide Us with personally identifiable information, the cookies will not contain any information that would allow Us to personally identify You. If You do provide personally identifiable information to Us, the cookie is tied to this information so that Our systems will recognize You each time You use the Sites. In that way, We can save Your preferences from visit to visit and present You with a customized version of the Sites every time You visit. Our cookies cannot be used to read data from Your hard drive and cannot retrieve information from any other cookies created by other sites. We use cookies in this manner to help Us understand how Users use the Sites, and to help Us to improve the Sites.

Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help Us market more effectively to users that We and Our partners believe may be interested in the Sites. They also help provide Us with aggregated auditing, research, and reporting, and know when content has been shown to you.

  • Advertising technologies on and off of Our Services, like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and mobile identifiers as permitted by mobile platforms;

We may share Your personal information with any third-party advertisers or ad networks for advertising. Also, advertising partners may associate personal information collected by the advertiser directly from You with Our cookies and similar technologies.

What can You do if You don't want cookies to be set or want them to be removed, or if You want to opt out of interest-based targeting?

Some people prefer not to allow cookies, which is why most browsers give You the ability to manage cookies to suit you. In some browsers You can set up rules to manage cookies on a site-by-site basis, giving you more fine-grained control over your privacy. What this means is that You can disallow cookies from all sites except those that You trust.

Cookies and Other Technologies

Different Durations of Cookies

Cookies can be stored on your computer for different periods of time. "Session cookie" only last for as long as the browser session and are deleted automatically once You close your browser. "Persistent cookies" cookies survive after your browser is closed until a defined expiration date set in the cookie (as determined by the party placing it), and help recognize your computer when You open your browser and browse the Internet again.

First Party and Third Party Cookies

First party cookies are placed on a website directly by the owner of the Site, in this case, Minerva. Third party cookies are placed on a website by third party providers (for example, by companies that provide advertising tracking or web analytics services) and by advertisers on the Site. We use both first-party cookies as well as third-party cookies.

Pixel Tags

We also use pixel tags (usually in combination with cookies), from the third parties, to get information about your usage of the Sites and about your interaction with email or other communications. Pixel tags are a technology similar to cookies that can be embedded in online content or within the body of an email for the purpose of tracking activity on websites (for example, to know when content has been shown to You), or to know when You have viewed particular content or a particular email message.
