A “Cookie” (also called web cookie, Internet cookie, or Browser Cookie) is a small text file sent from a website that remains stored on the user’s computer and web browser. A Cookie file that is stored in your web browser allows any website or a third-party to recognize you and make your next visit easier, faster, or more useful to you.
1) What Are Cookies?
There are, broadly, two types of Cookies: persistent cookies, which remain on your browser after you leave a website; and session cookies, which are removed from your browser when you leave a website. We use both types of Cookies.
Some of the Cookies used on One Mind are stored and managed by One Mind on the One Mind Website server logs. For additional information on the Cookies managed by Third Parties (a person, organization, or group outside of the One Mind Website that provides services in support of the One Mind Website), see the “Third-Party Cookies” section below.
When you visit the One Mind website, we may place cookie files in your web browser for the following reasons:
A) Analyzing Site Activity. We use session cookies to identify how long you spend on different pages of the One Mind Website.
C) Social Media Sharing. If you choose to ‘share’ any content from the One Mind website on a social media platform, that information will be saved as a session cookie to allow us to identify the number of times a page has been shared. We also use social sharing services provided by Third-Party services on the One Mind Website. See “Third-Party Cookies” for more information on the Cookies generated by those services.
3) Third Party Cookies
A) Google Analytics.The One Mind Website uses Google Analytics to analyze site activity including (but not limited to) page visits, duration of time spent on the One Mind site, and referral links (the location of the link that you clicked to get to the One Mind Website. Google Analytics collects IP Addresses, as well as browser and device information. The IP address can be used to pinpoint a user’s device location. This information will not be maintained in the One Mind site/database in any identifiable capacity, but will be used and accessed in aggregate form by One Mind staff to analyze trends in site activity.
B) AddThis: Social Sharing. AddThis will not collect any identifying information or Cookies unless you choose to share a One Mind page on social media, in which case you will be prompted to enter the login credentials for the target social media account. Login credentials collected in this way are not stored anywhere in the One Mind site or database. AddThis will store and manage this information according to the policies described in their Privacy Practices.
NOTE: Some social networking sites may use additional cookies that can be used to track your activity across multiple websites. One Mind does NOT track your activity across multiple websites. You can learn more about this capability offered by some websites in the “Learn More” section below.
C) One Mind Newsletter.The One Mind Website Newsletter Service is provided by iConntact. If you choose to subscribe to the One Mind Newsletter, you will receive regular updates by e-mail. Each e-mail will place a small GIF — also known as a web beacon — in every Newsletter e-mailed to our subscribers. These are small files that contain unique identifiers that allow us to identify how many subscribers have opened a newsletter, or clicked links embedded within it. These web beacons will record your email address, IP address, and the date/time that you opened the newsletter, and/or clicked a link inside the newsletter. We use this data to create reports about how engaged our subscribers are with our newsletter content. To the extent permitted by applicable law, by subscribing to the One Mind Website newsletter, you agree to the terms stated in this section.
