Cookie Policy

To make our websites and services work properly, we sometimes use small data files called cookies as well as related tracking technologies. A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the website.

The Educative Cookie Policy sets out how we may use cookies and related tracking technologies (collectively, “cookie(s)”) to assist you in accessing and navigating the Educative websites and services (collectively the “Educative Sites”).

How we use cookies

We use the data we collect from cookies and related tracking technologies to assist you in accessing and navigating the Educative Sites. We also use cookies to analyze your use of the Educative Sites, and to assist in promotional and marketing efforts. We use both session cookies (which exist only until you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which exist for a longer, specified period of time) on the Educative Sites. Cookies may be set by us (first-party cookies) or by another company (third-party cookies). Cookies may also be set in connection with emails, newsletters or advertisements you receive from us.

Information about you that we may collect from cookies includes, without limitation: your preferred language and location, browser information, operating system information, IP address, user behavior (including user acquisition information, websites visited, time spent on each website page, content requested, content consumed, etc.) and ad conversion data. We use these cookies and other technologies on the basis that they are necessary for the performance of a contract with you, or because using them is in our legitimate interests (where we have considered that these are not overridden by your rights), and, in some cases, where required by law, where you have consented to their use.
