When you visit our website (www.bricata.com) or access or use our Services or Products, we, our service providers, and certain third parties automatically collect certain data using tracking technologies like cookies and web beacons. This Cookie Notice (the “Notice”) describes what tracking technologies are used and what they are used for.
What Are Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your device’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our website and services, while others are used to enable a faster log-in process or to allow us to track your activities at our website and services. By themselves, cookies do not identify you specifically. Rather, they recognize your web browser. So, unless you identify yourself specifically to us, like filling out a webform, we do not know who you are just because you visited our website. Nonetheless, you can turn off your web browser’s ability to accept cookies; however, if you do, certain parts of our website or Products may not work for you.
There are two types of cookies: first-party and third-party. The table below describes the specific types of first-party and third-party cookies and the purposes they perform:
|Description||Who serves these cookies||
|Required cookies||Required cookies make it possible for you to access our customer support portal, navigate within the portal, and access information related to your account. They also enable Web Application Firewall services to protect traffic to our website.
Each time you log into the portal, a cookie containing an encrypted, unique identifier that is tied to your account is placed on your browser. These cookies allow us to uniquely identify you when you are logged into the portal and to process your online transactions and requests.
|Required cookies are necessary to operate the account portal, so you cannot opt out of them.|

|These cookies collect data about how visitors use our websites. This includes data like which pages visitors go to the most, or which features are accessed most often. These cookies do not collect information that individually identifies visitors to our website or users of our Products. The data these cookies collect is aggregated and intended to be anonymous and used to improve how website and Products function and perform.
We may also have third party service providers help us track and analyze usage and volume statistical information from individuals who visit our website.

What is a Web Beacon?
We use web beacons along with cookies to gather data about use of our website, support portals, and Products. Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of data on your computer, like cookies. For example, when you viewed a particular website tied to the web beacon and a description of a website tied to the web beacon. We may put web beacons in marketing emails or advertisements that notify us when you click on a link in the email that directs you to a website or one of its pages, or when you click on a link provided on our website. Our use of web beacons helps us operate and improve our website and communications.
What We Do with IP Addresses?
When you visit our websites, account portals, or use our Products, we may collect your IP addresses to track and analyze information about the devices that are connecting to our systems and about where those devices are located. For example, we use IP addresses to track which regions visitors to our website logging into our portal come from to detect fraud. We however assign a unique identification number to the IP address and we do not retain any IP address beyond that web session.
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that you can set in most web browsers. Certain state laws require us to indicate whether we honor DNT settings in your browser. We currently do not support DNT as there is no accepted standard on how to respond to web browsers’ DNT signals and even when you have DNT enabled, we may still use information collected for analytics and measurement purposes or to otherwise provide our Products or Services. You can learn more about Do Not Track here.

These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites to provide relevant advertisements about goods and service that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. See above for more information and opt-out options.
Information privacy is a constant responsibility so we may update this Notice as we adopt new personal data and privacy practices. We will post any changes we make to this Notice at www.bricata.com. Please check back frequently to see any updates or changes to this Notice.
