What technologies are used?
ENTER A SUMMARY
We use two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie lasts beyond the current session and is used for many purposes, such as recognizing you as an existing user, so its easier to return to EdCommunity and interact with our Services without signing in again. Since a persistent cookie stays in your browser, it will be read by EdCommunity when you return to one of our sites or visit a third party site that uses our Services. Session cookies last only as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
A pixel is a tiny image that may be embedded within web pages and emails, requiring a call (which provides device and visit information) to our servers in order for the pixel to be rendered in those web pages and emails. We use pixels to learn more about your interactions with email content or web content, such as whether you interacted with ads or posts. Pixels can also enable us and third parties to place cookies on your browser.
Local storage enables a website or application to store information locally on your device(s). Local storage may be used to improve the EdCommunity experience, for example, by enabling features, remembering your preferences and speeding up site functionality.

We may also work with our customers and partners to show you an ad on or off EdCommunity, such as after youve visited a customers or partners site or application.
If you are a EdCommunity member but logged out of your account on a browser, EdCommunity may still continue to log your interaction with our Services on that browser for up to 30 days in order to generate usage analytics for our Services. We may share these analytics in aggregate form with our customers.
What third parties use these technologies in connection with our Services?
You have choices regarding the use of your personal data for targeted advertising. Some mobile device operating systems such as Android and iOS provide the ability to control the use of mobile advertising IDs for ads personalization. You can learn how to use these controls by visiting the manufacturers website for both Android and iOS.
What is Do Not Track (DNT)?
DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. As such, EdCommunity does not generally respond to do not track signals.

If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
