Cookies

Cookies are small, usually randomly encoded, text files that help you navigate through a website. They are generated on the sites that you visit, as well as by third-parties that websites work with, to manage key elements of their business-user functionality. In most cases they do not involve or use personal information in any way.

Cookies are used extensively online and have become part of the fabric and make-up of what has made the internet work effectively for consumers and businesses. Without cookies, many areas of functionality (for example, user logins, shopping baskets and other customization features) would not work as expected.

Further information on cookies can be found at the EU Internet Handbook or AllAboutCookies.org.

Other tracking technologies

Other tracking technologies are used on Teamwork.com's company website and SaaS platform sites. These are primarily used to understand if customers or users are interacting with any marketing-type emails sent from our systems. Examples include:

  • Flash Locally Stored Objects (eg ‘Flash’ cookies) – these follow the same principle as normal standard cookies in that they allow information to be stored on a user’s machine.
  • Transparent GIF or web beacons- these mechanisms can be used to deliver a cookie to your browser. They can also be used in email marketing to identify to the sender if an email has been opened.
