The Service may contain information, data, text, photographs, videos, audio clips, written posts and comments, software, scripts, graphics, and interactive features generated, provided, or otherwise made accessible on or through the Service (collectively, “Content”). Subject to these Terms of Service, Cognisess grants to You and each user of the Service a worldwide, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable and non-transferable license to use (i.e., to download and display locally) Content solely for purposes of using the Service. Use, reproduction, modification, distribution or storage of any Content for other than purposes of using the Service is expressly prohibited without prior written permission from us. You shall not sell, license, rent, or otherwise use or exploit any Content for commercial use or in any way that violates any third party right. For the purposes of these Terms of Service, “Content” also includes all User Content (as defined below).

 

A “Cognisess Account” or “Account” referred to herein means a service, web site, or mobile application, provided by Cognisess, where You may use Cognisess to create, update, share, and publish information, data, text, messages or other materials (“User Content”).

 

Without limiting the foregoing, the Service is not designed or licensed for use in hazardous environments requiring fail-safe controls, including without limitation operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation/communication systems, air traffic control, and life support or weapons systems.

Cookies Policy

OUR POLICY

 

To comply with the EU cookie law, we have recently revised our cookies policy. Please review it to learn which cookies we use, how and why we use them, and how you can disable cookies by changing your browser settings. Please be aware that portions of this site will not function properly if you disable cookies. Unless you elect to disable cookies through your browser, by your continued use of this site you agree to our use of cookies as described in our cookies policy.

 

We respect and protect the privacy of visitors to our website, www.cognisess.com (the “Site”), and our customers who use our on-demand support platform, tools and services offered on the Site (the “Service”). This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) explains how We collect and use visitors’ and customers’ information as part of our Site and our Service.

 

Information You Provide

 

In this Policy, “personal information” means information or an information set that identifies or could be used by or on behalf of Cognisess to identify an individual, but not including encoded, anonymized, or publically-available data that has not been combined with non-public personal information.

 

The information Cognisess collects and uses is limited to the purpose for which customers engage Cognisess. When You register for the Service, We ask for information such as your name, company name and address, site name, phone number, e-mail address and credit card information. If You sign-up for a free trial account, You are not required to enter your credit card information until You decide to continue with a paid plan. Cognisess uses a third-party intermediary to manage credit card processing. This intermediary is not permitted to store, retain, or use your billing information, except for the sole purpose of credit card processing on Cognisess’s behalf.

 

Cognisess may use the personal information and other information We collect about your use of the Service to operate the Service and tailor it to your needs, for billing, identification and authentication, to contact You about your use of the Service, send you marketing materials (subject to your opt-out option), for research purposes, and to generally improve the content and functionality of the Service and the Site.

 

Cognisess may also share your personal information with its third-party vendors (such as its credit card processor) and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and other services We use to operate the Service and maintain quality user experience. Although Cognisess owns all rights to the software, code, databases, and other Service applications, You retain all rights to your data. Our service providers may not use your personal information for marketing purposes.

 

Cookies and Clear Gifs (a.k.a. web beacons)

 

A “cookie” is a small software file stored temporarily (session cookie) or placed on your computer’s hard drive (persistent cookie). The main purpose of a cookie is to allow a web server to identify a user’s computer and web browser, and tailor web pages and/or login information to the user’s preferences. Cookies help us promptly display the information You need and other information which We consider to be of interest to You. By gathering and remembering information about your website preferences through cookies We can provide a better web and marketing experience. Cookies don’t give us access to users’ computers, and the information we collect through cookies doesn’t include personal information.

 

When You visit the Site or use the Service We use “session cookies” to allow us to uniquely identify your browser while You are logged in, and to process your online transactions. We also use “persistent cookies” that only We can read and use, to identify You as a Cognisess customer and make it easier for You to log into the Service.

 

Essential cookies:
Some of the cookies We use are critical to the functionality of our Site. They are used to keep a user logged into the Site and remember relevant information when the user returns to the Site and uses the Service.

Functional cookies:
We also use certain cookies to track users’ activities on the Site, understand their preferences within the Site and improve their user experience.

Marketing cookies:
A third set of cookies is provided by third parties and allows us to deliver customized marketing information to our customers based on their Site usage profile and avoid delivering irrelevant marketing to customers.

Clear gifs:
Our third-party tracking utility company employs a software technology called clear gifs that helps us better manage content on our Site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personal information, and use them in our HTML-based emails to learn which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and our marketing campaigns. Customers can opt-out of these emails by following the unsubscribe instructions within such marketing emails.

Below We list the main cookies We use and explain what each cookie does:

Session cookies: 
our main application uses session cookies to serve users using the Service:

(i) Cognisess_session: used to track users and session state on our primary application.

(ii) Cognisess_shared_session: uses to seamlessly integrate the user session with other Service components.

(iii) Cognisess_auth_token: retains session if customer clicks on “remember me.”

Preferences cookies:
we also use a cookie called oid_user when a user prefers to login via OpenID.

Marketing cookies:
we also serve cookies via our third party providers to users who visit our Site:

(i) Marketo: allows us to offer the Service to active and repeating Site visitors.

(ii) Google Analytics: allows us to understand how people interact with the Site, and help us to optimize Site performance, usability and users’ experience.

(iii) Google Adwords: allow us to deliver targeted information to users who look for our Service.
