What is a Cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that is placed on a computer or other device and is used to identify the user or device and to collect information. Cookies are typically assigned to one of four categories, depending on their function and intended purpose: absolutely necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, and cookies for marketing purposes.
Types of Cookies and Why We Use Them
- Absolutely necessary cookies: These cookies are essential to enable you to move around a website and use its features. Without these cookies particular services cannot be properly provided.
- Performance cookies: These cookies collect information about how you use the Juno Services. Information collected includes, for example, the Internet browsers and operating systems used, the domain name of the website previously visited, the number of visits, average duration of visit, and pages viewed. These cookies do not collect information that personally identifies you and only collect aggregated and anonymous information. Performance cookies are used to improve the user-friendliness of a website and enhance your experience.
- Functionality cookies: These cookies allow the Juno Services to remember choices you make and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts, and other customisable parts of web pages. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised, and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
- Targeting and advertising cookies: These cookies track browsing habits and are used to deliver targeted (interest-based) advertising. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an ad and to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations, such as advertisers.
You can find more information about the individual cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them in the table below:
|Functionality||Juno uses many cookies to make the Juno Services work. These include cookies that customise your experience, recognise you when you return to the Juno Services, allow you to log in, move information from page to page as you navigate the Juno Services and generally improve your user experience.|
|Analytics||Cookies collect information and report website usage statistics without personally identifying individual visitors to Google. In addition to reporting website usage statistics, Google Analytics can also be used, together with some of the advertising cookies described below, to help show more relevant ads on Google properties (like Google Search) and across the web and to measure interactions with the ads we show.|
Sometimes advertising cookies may be set on the domain of the site you’re visiting. In the case of advertising Juno serves across the web, cookies may be set on the domain of the site you’re visiting. Unlike cookies that are set on Google’s own domains, these cookies can’t be read by Google when you’re on a site other than the one on which they were set. They serve purposes such as measuring interactions with the ads on that domain and preventing the same ads from being shown to you too many times.
Google also uses conversion cookies, whose main purpose is to help advertisers determine how many times people who click on their ads end up purchasing their products. These cookies allow Google and the advertiser to determine that you clicked the ad and later visited the advertiser’s site. Conversion cookies are not used by Google for personalized ad targeting and persist for a limited time only. A cookie named ‘Conversion’ is dedicated to this purpose. It’s generally set in the googleadservices.com domain or the google.com domain (you can find a list of domains we use for advertising cookies at the foot of this page). Some of Juno’s other cookies may be used to measure conversion events as well. For example, DoubleClick and Google Analytics cookies may also be used for this purpose.
You can manage website cookies in your browser settings, and you always have the choice to change these settings by accepting, rejecting, or deleting cookies. If you choose to change your settings, you may find that certain functions and features will not work as intended on the Juno Services. All browser settings are slightly different, so to manage cookies, you should refer to the relevant settings within your browser.We understand that you may want to know more about cookies. Here are some useful resources that provide detailed information about types of cookies, how they are used, and how you can manage your cookie preferences: www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.
