What is a cookie and where does it come from?

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer for the purpose of identifying your web browser to a website or network. Cookies are placed on your computer when you visit or register with certain websites. A cookie file is extremely small, usually less than 1kb in size. Cookies are not software and thus cannot install adware or spyware onto your computer or make it more susceptible to viruses.


Why does SaleSpider Media Inc use cookies?

Cookies help to enable certain functions on websites, such as shopping carts, login-based sessions, and advertising. SaleSpider Media Inc uses cookies to improve your web browsing experience and to provide advertisements on our sites, other websites and other forms of media about goods and services that may be of interest to you. For visitors to SaleSpider Media Inc's owned or affiliated publisher's properties, SaleSpider Media Inc may assign a unique random number to your computer browser - commonly known as a cookie. We do this to understand the way a user responds to the ads we deliver. For example, this number lets us keep track of how many times you view an ad we distribute. Likewise, the cookie can help make sure you do not see the same ad over and over - thus enhancing your online web viewing experience. SaleSpider Media Inc may also assign a third parties cookie to your browser. Advertisers that utilize these cookies include, but are not limited to, clients of SaleSpider Media Inc and clients of Sales Spider's partners, which include demand side platforms, data management platforms, and trading desks.

Alter your internet experience, other than to show you targeted display ads or improve your web browsing experience with respect to SaleSpider Media Inc or affiliated publisher properties.

Collect personally identifiable information such as your name and address, phone number, email address, social security number, credit card number, and so forth

To Opt-out of SaleSpider Media Inc advertising cookies, you can do any of the following:

Use the cookie management tools in your web browser. Also, use cookie management tools to be selective in what long-term cookies you accept. In the newest versions of most web browsers, you can set your browser to accept only session cookies, or to turn all cookies into session cookies. Session cookies are generally harmless. For Macintosh Safari users, you can tell the browser to only accept cookies from "the site you are navigating to." This means that you will not accept third party cookies. To explore what cookie settings are available to you, look in the "preferences" or "options" section of your browser's menu.

View current cookies and delete what you don't need. Most web browsers allow you to see what cookies you already have stored. You may have thousands of cookies if you are like many web surfers. Some cookies, such as registration cookies for web sites you visit frequently, are useful to keep around. Delete the cookies you don't need, and do a periodic check every couple of months to weed out your cookie folder.

For more information: the World Privacy Forum published a report about various kinds of online tracking cookies as part of its testimony about behavioral advertising to the Federal Trade Commission. That report discusses opt out cookies (see below), and it also discusses rarer kinds of cookies such as Flash Cookies, Silverlight Cookies, and others. The report is located here: http://www.worldprivacyforum.org/pdf/WPF_NAI_report_Nov2_2007fs.pdf.


To Opt-out of Online Behavioral Advertising

We are committed to transparency and choice. A person can opt-out of all behavioral advertising by using the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out tools. The NAI opt-out tool reports which member companies have placed a cookie that can be used for Interest-Based Advertising on your browser by checking for the presence of such cookies and reporting back whether it found any "active" cookies. The NAI opt-out tool also allows you to set cookies that will tell NAI members you do not want to participate in Interest-Based Advertising. The tool does not delete individual cookies nor does it necessarily replace other cookies delivered by NAI companies, such as those that are used for ad reporting or ad serving purposes that, for example, allow advertisers to change the sequence of ads, as well as to track the number of ads delivered. For more information, or to access the tool, please go to http://networkadvertising.org/consumer/opt_out.asp
