These technologies allow us to recognize your preference information, keep track of your purchases, remember your account, and facilitate effective Website administration. We use the information we collect to enhance your visit to the Website and to provide you with information tailored to your needs.

Your Internet browser(s) will offer you the option to refuse cookies, but doing so may affect your use of some portions of the Website. Please refer to your browser options to learn more about cookie management.

We have engaged third party tracking to act on Unizin’s behalf to track and analyze your usage of our Website through the use of cookies, pixel tags/web beacons, and similar technologies. At our request, these third parties collect, and share with us, usage information about visits to our Website and track page usage and paths followed during visits through our Website.

Our Website is not configured to read or respond to “do not track” settings or signals in your browser headings or mobile device settings, which vary by provider. In lieu of a browser- or device-based opt-out solution, we have identified in the table below certain Digital Advertising Alliance and other approved methods for placement of “opt-out” cookies. Our Website and those of our third-party advertisers or other vendors are configured to read and honor these opt-out cookies, so long as they are present on your computer or device. If you delete all cookies, you will need to reset your opt-out cookies. Please be aware that Unizin does not control these opt-out processes.

Types of cookies we track:

  • Required Cookies
    • Required Cookies are essential for the basic and enhanced website functionality and performance.  Without these cookies, services you have asked for and the choices you have made for better functionality and features cannot be provided.
    • Performance
      • These cookies, such as those used for Google Analytics, collect information on how users use our Website, in order to help us fix technical issues or errors, and highlight areas such as navigation where we can improve our Website. For example, Google Analytics uses cookie identifiers to track the number of visitors to the Website, providing us with the volumes and sources of web page traffic.  This allows us to analyze web traffic patterns and run tests to optimize web pages and visits against key metrics.
    • Functionality
      • These cookies, such as language preference, help us customize our Website content based on a user’s preferences. They remember the user’s choices, their language, the country pages visited, and any changes the user makes to text size or other parts of our Website pages. The information these cookies collect may be anonymized and they cannot track browsing activity on other websites.
    • Essential
      • These cookies, such as jsessionid, xssid, xssidsec, and dlsite, are essential for parts of our Website to operate. They enable users to move around our Website and allow us to recognize a user within our Website, so that we can provide users with service they asked for.  They are required to maintain a record of your Do Not Track preferences, so that we may respect them for future visits.
    • Targeting
      • The information collected by Google Analytics itself is anonymous, but if you respond to a marketing email, then a random ID is generated for Google Analytics which we can use along with your email address to manually identify you from other information we already hold in your customer profile. We may then use this information to generate potential sales leads or marketing.
