Cookie Policy

Last Updated: August 9, 2018

Cookies at Pivot Point Security Inc.

Pivot Point Security (“us,” “we,” or “our”) uses cookies on the https://www.pivotpointsecurity.com website (the “Site”). By using the Site, you consent to the use of cookies.

Our Cookie Policy explains what cookies are, how we use cookies, how third-parties we may partner with may use cookies on the Site, your choices regarding cookies, information on the specific cookies we use, and further information about cookies.

What are cookies

Cookies are small pieces of text sent to your web browser by a website you visit. A cookie file is stored in your web browser and allows the Site or a third party to recognize you and make your next visit easier and the Site more useful to you.

Cookies can be “persistent” or “session” cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your personal computer or mobile device when you go offline, while session cookies are deleted as soon as you close your web browser.

How Pivot Point Security uses cookies

When you use and access the Site, we may place a number of cookies files in your web browser. We use cookies to enable certain functions of the Site and may use both session and persistent cookies.

  • Analytical purposes: Analytical cookies allow us to recognize, measure and track visitors to our Site. This helps us to improve and develop the way our Site works, for example, by determining whether site visitors can find information easily, or by identifying the aspects of the site that are of the most interest to them.
  • Usage preferences: Some of the cookies on our Site are activated when visitors to our sites make a choice about their usage of the site. Our Site then ‘remembers’ the settings preferences of the user concerned. This allows us to tailor aspects of the site to the individual user.
  • Terms and conditions: We use cookies on our Site to record when a site visitor has seen a policy, such as this one, or provided consent, such as consent to the terms and conditions on our Site. This helps to improve the user’s experience of our Site – for example, it avoids a user from repeatedly being asked to consent to the same terms.
  • Session management: The software that runs our Site uses cookies for technical purposes needed by the internal workings of our servers. For instance, we use cookies to distribute requests among multiple servers, authenticate users and determine what features of the site they can access, verify the origin of requests, keep track of information about a user’s session and determine which options or pages to display in order for the site to function.
  • Third party cookies. When you visit our Site, you may receive cookies that are set by third parties. These cookies are used for the purposes described in the bullet points above. We do not control the setting of these third-party cookies, so we suggest you might wish to check the third-party Sites for more information about their use of cookies and how to manage them.
  • Amending Internet browser settings to disable cookies. You can configure your browser to send accept all cookies, reject all cookies, notify you when a cookie is set, or delete cookies that have already been set. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in that case you may not be able to use certain features on our Site. In addition, a number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit Sites anonymously.
