What are Cookies?

To make our website and Services work properly, Uploadcare may store cookies (and other technologies, like pixels and beacons) on your browser or device.

Cookies can be "First Party," when they are run by Uploadcare, or "Third Party" when they are run by a third party when you browse our website. Uploadcare cannot access third-party cookies, nor can third parties access the data in the cookies we use on our website.

Cookies are stored for different lengths of time on your browser or device. "Session cookies" disappear from your device when you close your web browser. “Persistent cookies” will stay on your device until they get manually deleted or until they expire.

Uploadcare website and Services may contain third party pixels that allow certain third parties to set or read cookies located on your device. This pixel will help us assess the success of our ads campaigns and website or Services functionalities. We may use marketing Pixels, such as Facebook and Google AdWords Remarketing Tag, to measure the effectiveness of our ads, to define custom audiences for ad targeting, for dynamic ads campaigns, and to analyze the effectiveness of our website's conversion funnels. Please notice the chart located below where you can choose to opt-in/out of these technologies.

As a general rule, Uploadcare uses cookies to improve and personalize its Sites and Services and/or measure its audience. Cookies are files saved to your local storage when browsing on the internet and in particular on our Sites. A cookie is not used to gather your personal information without your knowledge but instead to record information on site browsing which can be read directly by Uploadcare on your subsequent visits.

How to control cookies

You can choose to decline acceptance of all non-essential cookies, but your ability to browse certain pages of our website and Services may be reduced. The cookies used by Uploadcare are intended to enable or facilitate communication, to enable the Services requested by users to be supplied, to recognize users when they re-visit the site, to secure payments which users may make, or other preferences necessary for the service requested to be supplied and to enable Uploadcare, internally, to carry out analyses on hit rates and browsing experience so as to improve the content, to track email open rates, click rates, and bounce-back rates at individual levels.

By default, cookies are not installed automatically if you come from the European Economic Area, UK or Switzerland (except for those cookies needed to run the Uploadcare website and Services, and you are informed of their installation by a clickable banner with a text description). In accordance with the regulations that apply, Uploadcare will require your authorization before implanting any other kind of cookie to your local storage. To avoid being bothered by these routine requests for authorization and to enjoy uninterrupted browsing, you can configure your device to accept Uploadcare cookies, or we can remember your refusal or acceptance of certain cookies. By default, browsers accept all cookies.

You can delete all cookies that are already on your device, and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, some services and functionalities may not work on this website.
