Cookies Policy

This Cookies Policy (“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 EOSIO website located at eso.io and its subdomains (including eoshackathon.io, vc.eos.io, battles.eos.io, developers.eos.io, and testnet.eos.io), 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.

How Do We Use Cookies and other Data Collection Technology?

We and our authorized third-party service providers use Cookies, Web Beacons and other similar technology (collectively, “Data Collection Technology”) on the Websites and in Emails to help us improve your online experience.  We use data gathered about website activity (e.g., demographic data, browser type, IP address, pages visited, the day and time of visit) to recognize past users, better understand the interests of users and website visitors, and to improve the website to enhance the visitor experience. We also use Data Collection Technology to target users for certain types of content and provide a better user experience.
