What is a cookie?

When does Hellotest.com place cookies?
What types of cookies does Hellotest.com use?
We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to Hellotest.com or interact with our Services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by Hellotest.com when you return to our Website. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
What are cookies used for?
Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit Hellotest.com, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with Hellotest.com faster and more secure. Additionally, cookies allow us to bring you advertising both on and off the Hellotest.com sites and bring customized features to you.
How are cookies used for advertising purposes?
Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers, understand and improve our service, and know when content has been shown to you. Note: Because your web browser may request advertisements and beacons directly from third-party ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set third party cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site. Ads served by Hellotest.com may also set third party cookies.
If you are logged in on Hellotest.com and one of our cookies on your device identifies you, your usage (such as your browsing behavior) and log data (such as your IP address) will be associated by us with your account. We also use aggregate data from third parties and Hellotest.com activity.
If you are a Hellotest.com member but logged out of your account on a browser, Hellotest.com may still continue to log your interaction with our services on that browser in order to generate usage analytics for our services, which analytics we may share in aggregate form with our advertising customers.
Unless you clear these cookies from your browser, we may use this information to:
- provide more relevant, interest-based advertising;
- provide aggregate reports of ads activity to advertisers and websites hosting the ads;
- help website and app owners understand how visitors engage with their sites or apps;
- detect and defend against fraud and other risks to protect users and partners;
- improve our Services and other products.
We do not provide any personal information that we collect to advertisers unless you have given us permission to do so.

Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you.

What to do if you don’t want cookies to be set or want them to be removed?
If you do not want to receive cookies, you can also change your browser settings on your computer or other device you’re using to access our services. If you use Hellotest.com without changing your browser settings, we’ll assume that you’re happy to receive all cookies on Hellotest.com Websites.
