Cookies

We use the following cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
  • Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

Cookie Type Description Management information
Required Cookies Required cookies make it possible for you to access our account portal, navigate within the portal, and access information related to your account.

Each time you log into the account portal, a cookie containing an encrypted, unique identifier that is tied to your account is placed on your browser. These cookies allow Pusher to uniquely identify you when you are logged into the account portal and to process your online transactions and requests.
Required cookies are necessary to operate the account portal, so you can’t opt out of them.
Functionality Cookies Functionality cookies allow the Pusher Site and account portal to remember information you have entered or preferences you select, and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies allow you to optimize your use of Pusher’s account portal after logging in. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customize. You can use your browser settings to opt out of functionality cookies. Note that opting out may affect the functionality of our Site or account portal for you.
We may use Flash cookies to store preferences you set inside your Pusher Account.
Performance Cookies These cookies collect data about how visitors use the Pusher Site. This includes data like which pages visitors go to the most. These cookies don’t collect information that individually identifies visitors. The data these cookies collect is aggregated and intended to be anonymous and used to improve how the site functions and performs. You can use your browser settings to opt out of performance cookies.
We may also have third party service providers help us track and analyze usage and volume statistical information from individuals who visit our Site. Or, we may use Flash cookies for this. Flash cookies are different from browser cookies because of the amount of, type of, and how data is stored.
Third party service providers that currently place performance cookies include:
Google Analytics - We use Google Analytics to help analyze which pages on the Pusher Site visitors to the site viewed.
The above list of third party service providers that place cookies is subject to change and list may not include all such providers at any given time.
Targeting or Advertising Cookies Pusher may have third party service providers track and analyze usage and volume statistical information from those who visit our Pusher Site. Pusher sometimes uses cookies placed by its third party service providers to track the performance of our advertisements. For example, these cookies remember which browsers have visited the Pusher Site. This data given to the third party service providers does not include information that identifies you specifically, but this data may be re-associated with information that identifies you specifically after Pusher receives it. To learn more about how to opt out of targeting and advertising cookies, you can go to the Your Online Choices page, the Network Advertising Initiative page, and the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Consumer Choice page. These opt-out tools are provided by third parties, not Pusher. We do not control or operate these tools or the choices that advertisers and others provide through these tools.
Pusher also uses third-party advertising networks that collect IP addresses and other data from web beacons (see below) on the Pusher Site, from emails, and on third-party websites. Ad networks follow your online activities over time through automated means, such as cookies and web beacons. They use this data to provide ads about products and services tailored to your interests. You may see these ads on other websites. This helps us manage and track the effectiveness of our marketing.
From time to time, Pusher works with third parties to provide certain features on our Pusher Site or to display ads based upon your web browsing activity. These third parties may use Flash cookies to collect and store data.
Below are third parties that currently place tracking technologies on the Pusher Site.

The above list of third party service providers that place cookies is subject to change and list may not include all such providers at any given time.

Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.

You block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our site.
