Are cookies used on the CircusTalk Website?

As described in our  Privacy Policy, CircusTalk uses cookies and similar technologies like pixels and tags to ensure that we give you the best possible experience on our Website.

A cookie is a small file placed onto your device. Cookies enable us to identify your device, and enable the functioning of many CircusTalk features, including your ability to log into your Account.

If you don't want to receive cookies, you can change your browser settings. If you use the CircusTalk Website without changing your browser settings, we will assume that you're happy to receive all cookies on the CircusTalk Website. Please note that the CircusTalk Website will not work properly without cookies.

Analytics companies like Google Analytics may also place cookies on your machine. Please read their privacy policies to ensure that you're comfortable with the manner in which they use cookies.

What kinds of cookies are used on the CircusTalk Website?

The CircusTalk Website uses two types of cookies: persistent and session. A persistent cookie is set once you've logged in to your Account. The next time you visit the CircusTalk Website using the same device, the persistent cookie will enable us to recognize you as an existing user, so you may not need to log in before using our Services. A session cookie is used to identify a particular visit to the CircusTalk Website. Session cookies expire after a short time, or when you close your web browser. Other technology, such as Adobe Flash, can be used to place the functional equivalent of a cookie on your computer.

When does CircusTalk put cookies on my machine?

Cookies may be set by CircusTalk when you visit the CircusTalk Website, or they may be set by other Websites or services who run content on the page you're viewing (known as third-party cookies). You can also learn more about Circus Talk's advertising practices by reading our Privacy Policy.

 

For what purpose are cookies used?

Cookies can be used to do lots of different things, like recognize you when you navigate to CircusTalk's Website, storing your preferences and improving your experience. Cookies also make your interactions with CircusTalk more secure, faster, and help us ensure that your Circus Talk experience is personalized to you and in line with your settings. Additionally, cookies allow CircusTalk to bring you advertising both on and off the CircusTalk Website, and bring customized features to you through CircusTalk plugins such as our share button. We use cookies for a number of purposes, including:

Authentication

We use cookies to recognize you if you are logged in to the CircusTalk Website, so that we can show you the right information and personalize your experience.

Security

We use cookies to support or enable security features we have deployed, and to help us detect malicious activity and violations of our Terms of Service.

Preferences, features and services

We uses cookies to know which language you prefer, what your communications preferences are, and they help you fill out forms on the CircusTalk Website. Plus they provide you with features, insights, and customized content through our plugins.

Advertising

We may use cookies to show you relevant advertising both on and off the CircusTalk. We may also use a cookie to learn whether members who saw an ad on the CircusTalk Website later visited the advertiser's site. Similarly, our partners may use a cookie to determine whether we've shown an ad and how it performed, or provide us with information about how you interact with them. We may also work with a partner to show you an ad on or off the CircusTalk Website, such as after you've visited a partner's site or application. Cookies and ad technology such as web beacons, pixels, and anonymous ad network tags help CircusTalk more effectively serve ads to you, as well as to collect aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers. Note: Because your web browser may request advertisements and web beacons directly from ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.

Performance, Analytics and Research

We use cookies to help us learn how well our site and plugins perform across the globe. We also use cookies to understand, improve, and research products, features, and services, including when you access the CircusTalk Website from other Websites, applications, or devices such as your work computer or your mobile device. Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. Limiting the ability of Websites to set cookies, however, may worsen your overall user experience.
