    We and our service providers use cookies, beacons, embedded scripts and local shared objects in connection with the Sites.

    • Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer from a web server. Cookies allow a website to recognize a particular device or browser. The use of cookies is a standard practice among websites to collect information about visitors’ activities while using the website. Most browsers are set up to accept cookies, but you can change your settings to have your browser notify you when you receive a new cookie or to refuse to accept cookies.
    • Beacons are small graphical images (also known as “pixel tags” or “clear GIFs”) that may be included on our Website and in e-mail communications and typically work in conjunction with cookies to identify our users, their devices and behavior, type of e-mail applications used, screen resolution in order to check if our communications have been opened and acted upon, and to provide content and ads that are more relevant to you.
    • An embedded script is a programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with a website, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from a web server or a third-party service provider, and is only active while you are connected to a website and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
    • Local Shared Objects (or Flash cookies) are pieces of data that websites which use Adobe Flash may store on a user’s computer or device. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our Websites or to display advertising based upon your web browsing activity use local shared objects. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing local shared objects. In addition, you may manage Flash cookies by clicking here.

    The above technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the Website, services and products, tracking users’ movements around Websites and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis.

    Below is a list of the cookies we use on our Website, their purpose, and how you may opt out of our use of these cookies.

    • Required/Technical Cookies

      Required cookies enable you to navigate the Website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the Website and using Reviewbuzz products and services.

      If you have chosen to identify yourself to us, we use cookies containing encrypted information to allow us to uniquely identify you. Each time you log into the Website, a cookie containing an encrypted, unique identifier that is tied to your account is placed on your browser. These cookies allow us to uniquely identify you when you are logged into the Sites and to process your online transactions and requests.

      Technical cookies can be grouped into session cookies, which allow you to navigate and use the Website, and functionality cookies, as described below.

      Managing Settings: Because required cookies are essential to operate the Website and Reviewbuzz products and services, there is no option to opt out of these cookies.

    • Functionality Cookies

      Functionality cookies allows the Website to remember information you have entered or choices you make (e.g. your username, language, or your region) and provide you with a more personalized experience. These cookies also enable you to optimize your use of Reviewbuzz products and services 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.

      Managing Settings: To learn how to opt out of functionality cookies using your browser settings click here. Note that opting out may impact the functionality you receive when using the Website.

    • Targeting/Advertising Cookies

      From time-to-time we engage third-parties to track and analyze usage and volume statistical information from individuals who visit the Website. We sometimes use cookies delivered by third-parties to track the performance of our advertisements. For example, these cookies remember which browsers have visited the Website.

      We also contract with third-party advertising networks that collect IP addresses and other information from Web beacons (see above) on the Website and from e-mails. Ad networks follow your online activities over time and across different sites or other online services by collecting website navigation information through automated means, including through the use of cookies. These technologies may recognize you across the different devices you use, such as a desktop or laptop computer, smartphone or tablet. We may use this information to provide advertisements about products and services tailored to your interests. You may see these advertisements on other websites or mobile applications on any of your devices. This process also helps us manage and track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts. Third-parties, with whom we partner to provide certain features on the Sites or to display advertising based upon your web browsing activity, use Flash cookies to collect and store information. Flash cookies are different from browser cookies because of the amount of, type of, and how data is stored.

      Managing Settings: If you wish to not have this information collected and used for targeted advertising, you may opt-out by clicking here for partners that participate in the TRUSTe opt-out tool (or if located in the European Union click here). If you wish to opt out from this type of advertising for companies that participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA), you can do so by clicking here.

      Please note that this does not opt you out of being served ads. You will continue to receive generic ads. Reviewbuzz adheres to the DAA’s Self-Regulatory Principles when we allow third parties to collect data on the Website for such advertising.

      Managing Settings: We do not control these cookies and you should check the social media service provider’s website for further details about how they use cookies and how to manage these cookies.


    Our Websites include buttons that link to social media networks (“Social Media Networks”) such as Facebook, Twitter YouTube, Google+, Instagram, and LinkedIn. Such Social Media Networks are not affiliated with Reviewbuzz.
