Cookies Policy

This Cookies Policy describes the cookies and other data collection technology that block.one and its affiliates (“we,” “us,” or “our“) use when you visit our websites.

 

Scope

This Policy applies to our websites, which includes https://block.one, https://eos.io, https://eoshackathon.io/ and their subdomains, regardless of the medium in which the websites are accessed by a user (e.g., via a web or mobile browser) (the “Websites’) and any emails sent to you by us or by our third party service providers (“Emails”).  

 

What is a Cookie?

A “Cookie” is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web server.  Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the Cookie to you.  

Cookies typically fall into the following categories:

  • A First-Party Cookie refers to a Cookie created by the domain of the website the user is visiting.
  • A Third-Party Cookie is a Cookie that is placed by a domain other than that of the website the user is visiting.
  • A Session Cookie is temporary, linking the actions of a user during the any given browser session. When the browser is closed, the cookie is deleted.
  • A Permanent Cookie, also known as a persistent Cookie, is stored for a specific period of time and activates each time the user visits the website that created the Cookie.

A “Web Beacon” (also called a “pixel tag” or “clear GIF”) is a piece of computer code that enables us to monitor user activity and website traffic or know when a user has opened or interacted with an email.
