Cookies and tracking technologies

Our website employ cookies to provide you with a better browsing experience.

What are cookies

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer, tablet or mobile when visiting a website. Cookies are used in order to make the website and/or services work, work more efficiently, provide analytics information, and remeber your preferences.

There are two types of cookies; ones that are set by the website owner that are called "first-party cookies", and ones that are set by parties other than the website owner, which are called "third-party cookies". For the sketchappdata.com website we only use third-party cookies. The use of these types of files is described below.

Agreeing to cookies

Upon your first visit to sketchappdata.com, you'll be presented with the option to accept or decline the use of cookies. Clicking "Accept" or closing this message, means you agree to the use of cookies in accordance with the provisions of this privacy policy. You can change your consent at anytime by deleting or changing the cookie setting in your browser.

Cookies allow us to:

  • use analytical tools,
  • use commenting system,
  • use marketing tools.

Cookies we use:

Cookie consent. We use the Osana cookie consent plugin to manage cookie consent. This plugin does not set any cookies by default. If you accept the use of cookies, however, this plugins sets a cookie called "cookieconsent_status" to remember your choice for when you revisit this site. Note: this cookie is not deleted if you at a later date decline the use of cookies. Therefore, you'll need to delete this cookie manually. Please visit aboutcookies.org to see how this is done.

Analysis and statistics. We use Google Analytics, which employs cookies to track website statistics, such as number of visitors, the type of operating system use, web browser used to browse the website, time spent on the website, visited subpages, etc. Collected information is completely anonymous and does not allow your identification.

The use of Google Analytics services involves the implementation of the tracking code provided by Google into our website’s code. This code is based on cookies but may also use other tracking technologies.

Please note that our website initializes Google Analytics with the setting anonymizeIp. This guarantees anonymized data collection by masking the last part of your IP address. Details related to the use of information collected by Google as part of our use of Google Analytics as part of our site can be found here: https://www.google.com/intl/pl/policies/privacy/partners/.

Comment system. We use Disqus commenting system, which employs the use of Disqus Inc. cookies. Disqus offers a strong Do Not Track (DNT) framework. This includes both honoring DNT settings from browsers and allowing users to opt-out of tracking within Disqus for targeted advertising and content recommendations.

Currently, users with Disqus accounts can update their settings to opt-out of tracking across all devices and browsers where they are logged in. Logged-out users or readers without Disqus accounts can also opt-out of tracking for individual browsers.

Marketing tools. We use MailChimp mailing system in order to create mailing lists. As a result, Rocket Science Group cookies are used in connection for the MailChimp service.
