What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, HULFT) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Websites and the purposes they perform are described in the table below
|Types of cookie||Who serves these cookies||How to refuse|
|Essential website cookies: These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Websites and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas.||HULFT Inc. www.hulftinc.com and www.hulft.com|
|Because these cookies are strictly necessary to deliver the Websites to you, you cannot refuse them.|
|Performance and functionality cookies: These cookies are used to enhance the performance and functionality of our Websites but are non-essential to their use. However, without these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable.||HULFT Inc. www.hulftinc.com and www.hulft.com||To refuse these cookies, please follow the instructions below under the heading “How can I control cookies?”|
|Analytics and customisation cookies: These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our Websites are being used or how effective are marketing campaigns are, or to help us customise our Websites for you.||HULFT Inc www.hulftinc.com and www.hulft.com|

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?
Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of websites to analyse the traffic patterns, such as the frequency users visit various areas of our Services. Pixel tags may allow us to advertise more efficiently by excluding our current users from certain promotional messages or identifying the source of a new installation. These methods may involve collecting information directly from you or through another entity authorized by us to collect information on our behalf. We also use these methods in HTML emails that we send our guests to determine whether the recipients have opened those emails or clicked on links in those emails. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects?
Our Websites may also use so-called “Flash Cookies” (also known as Local Shared Objects or “LSOs”) to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our services, fraud prevention and for other site operations.
If you do not want Flash Cookies stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash Cookies storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash Cookies (referred to “information” on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash Cookies that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time).
Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our services or online content.
Like most internet services, we may also use log files on the server side to collect information from you. Your information held in log files includes your computer’s or mobile device’s IP (Internet Protocol) address, browser type, browser language, email application, Internet service provider, referring/exit web pages, computer platform type, date/time stamp and user activity.
The software enabling our Services has associated log and temporary files that are stored on our servers. These files store your account information, preference settings, system notifications as well as other data necessary to enable you to use our Services. Your information may also be collected in connection with regularly performed server backups.
Click Through URLs
Some of our Services, including email messages, use “click-through URLs” linked to other content on our Services. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in topics and use of the Services.
