What are cookies and what do we use them for?
We collect Device Identifiable Information and other Non-Personal Information through technologies such as "cookies" and "pixel tags" (which are also called clear GIFs, web beacons, or pixels). A "cookie" is a piece of alphanumeric data stored on your hard drive when you visit our website that enables us to improve your access to our Website and Services and to identify repeat visitors to our Services. "Pixel tags" are small graphic images (usually invisible) that can be embedded in content and ads on a webpage that track usage of our Website and effectiveness of communication. These pixel tags can then be used to recognize our cookies and to monitor certain user interactions with a website. For the purposes of this policy, the term "Website" shall include www.peralabs.co, www.sperman.co, and their subdomains, and the online services that we operate, including but not limited to FIMS-hosted services, and any and all other Pera Labs-hosted websites (collectively, the "Services").
