What is a cookie?

A browser (or HTTP) cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is transferred to your browser through our Platform.

Types of cookies

 First and third-party cookies: whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the domain placing the cookie.

First-party cookies on our Platform are those set by the ON24.com domain.

Third-party cookies on our Platform are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.

Persistent cookies: these cookies remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.

Session cookies: these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

‘Performance’ cookies collect information about how you use our Platform (e.g., which pages you visit and if you experience any errors). They are used to help us improve how the Platform works, understand the interests of our users and carry out Platform analytics, and test different designs and features..  Some of these cookies are managed for us by third parties.

‘Functional’ cookies enable us to provide enhanced functionality and personalization.   For example, we use these cookies to provide certain features (such as embedded content); improve your visit; remember settings you’ve applied, such as language, layout, text size, preferences and colors; save your cookie preferences; and remember if you have engaged with particular content on the Platform so that we don’t show it again. Some of these cookies are managed for us by third parties.
