When you visit, access or use the Site, we may, by means of cookies, beacons, tags, scripts, and/or similar technologies automatically collect technical information, including Device and Usage Information and other similar technical information.
A cookie can be classified by its lifespan and the domain to which it belongs. By lifespan, a cookie is either a session cookie, which is erased when the user closes the browser, or a persistent cookie, which remains on the user’s computer/device for a pre-defined period of time. As to the domain to which a cookie belongs, it is either a first-party cookie, which is set by Lightup, or a third-party cookie stored by a different domain.
We use both session and persistent cookies, and enable first- and third-party cookies.
