All capitalized terms not in this Privacy Policy defined will have the meaning set forth in our Strangeworks User Terms. This Privacy Policy applies to any user or visitor to or of the Services. Strangeworks processes Personal Information in the role of a controller as described in this Privacy Policy.

Cookie Policy - What are Tracking Technologies, such as Cookies and Web Beacons, and How Do We Use Them?

We, or third parties we do business with, may use certain technologies to automatically collect log files and other information about your usage of, and the devices you use to access, the Services ("Tracking Technologies"). For example, we may use Tracking Technologies like cookies, log files, web beacons, session replay scripts, or similar technologies to help us analyze our web page flow, customize our services, content and advertising, measure promotional effectiveness and promote trust and safety.

You may delete and block all cookies from the Services, but parts of the Services will not work. We want to be open about our cookie use.

Even if you are only browsing the Services, certain information (including computer and connection information, browser type and version, operating system and platform details, and the time of accessing the Services) is automatically collected about you. This information will be collected every time you access the Services and it will be used for the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy.

You can reduce the information cookies collected from your device. An easy way of doing this is often to change the settings in your browser. If you do that you should know that (a) your use of the Services may be adversely affected (and possibly entirely prevented), (b) your experience of this and other sites that use cookies to enhance or personalize your experience may be adversely affected, and (c) you may not be presented with advertising that reflects the way that you use our and other sites.

Unless you have adjusted your browser settings so that it will refuse cookies, our system will send cookies as soon as you visit and/or access our Services. By using the Services you consent to this, unless you change your browser settings.

Web beacons may be used to track the traffic patterns of users from one page to another in order to maximize web traffic flow. Our third-party advertising service providers may also use web beacons to recognize you when you visit or access the Services and to help determine how you found the Services.
