This Cookie Notice describes the types of cookies and similar tracking technologies we use on our services via our websites and apps, how we use them, and what your choices are for controlling cookies.
There are a few different categories of cookies, including:
We may use the following categories of cookies on our Sites:
|Type of cookie||Description of how we use this type of cookie|
|Essential Cookies||Essential cookies are sometimes called “strictly necessary” as without them we cannot provide many services that you need on the website. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services. For example, essential cookies help remember your preferences, such as setting your privacy preference or logging in, as you move around the website.|
|Analytics cookies||These cookies track information about website visits so we can make improvements and measure and report our performance. For example, we analyze visitor and user behavior to provide more relevant content, suggest certain activities or understand which pages on our Sites are the most and least popular. These cookies collect information about how visitors use the website, which site the user came from, the number of each user’s visits, and how long a user stays on the website. We might also use analytics cookies to test new pages or features to see how users react to them. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our site.|
|Functionality or Preference Cookies||These cookies let us operate Skillshare according to your preferences. For example, when you continue to use or come back to Skillshare, we can provide you with our services based on information you provide to us, such as remembering your username, your preferred language choice, how you have customized our services, and reminding you of content you have enjoyed or watched on Skillshare previously. These preferences are remembered and the next time you visit the website you won’t have to set them again. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.|
|Targeting or Marketing Cookies||These third-party cookies are placed by third-party advertising platforms or networks in order to deliver ads and track ad performance, enabling advertising networks to deliver ads that may be relevant to you based upon your activities (this is sometimes called behavioral, tracking, or targeted advertising) on the website. They may subsequently use information about your visit to show you ads that you may be interested in on our website and other websites. For example, these cookies remember which browsers have visited the website. If you do not allow these cookies you will still see basic advertising on your browser that is generic and not based on your interests.|
You may withdraw your consent for our cookie uses that are not strictly necessary at any time by updating your privacy settings.
In addition, certain third party advertising networks, including Google, allow users to opt out of or customize preferences associated with your internet browsing. To learn more about this feature from Google, click here.
Please keep in mind that, without cookies, you may not have access to certain features on our Sites, including access to your profile/account and certain personalized content. Removing all cookies from your computer could also affect your subsequent visits to certain websites, including our Sites, by requiring that, for example, you enter your login name when you return to that website. Please note that even if you exercise any of the choices described above, you will still see ads, but they will not be based upon the information collected through these tracking technologies, and therefore not necessarily relevant to your interests.
