What is a cookie?
Are there different types of cookies?
Yes. Some cookies are only placed on your computer for the duration of your visit to our app and website, these are called “session based” cookies. These automatically expire when you close your browser. The other type of cookie is known as a “persistent” cookie. These cookies remain on your computer for a period of time until they expire or are removed. honcho uses both of these types of cookie.
These cookies are necessary to provide you with many of our site’s services and features. Without them, important parts of the site (such as the secure login section) wouldn’t work.
These cookies are used by analytical tools such as Google Analytics, Mixpanel and Adjust. They are used to collect information about how customers have got to, and use, our app and website(s). This data is aggregated, meaning none of it identifies the users it relates to. It helps us understand things like how many people are visiting the site, how they reached us and what their user experience was.
These cookies allow our app and website(s) to remember choices you make (like your user name, your region and any customisations you’ve made to elements such as text size or font). They may also be needed to enable functions such as videos or blog comments. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity across other websites.
Social Media Cookies
Social media features
Our app and website(s) use social media features (“Social Features”) provided by companies and services such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and others to enable you to share information with these channels. The Social Features are identified on our app by our display of the companies’ logos. These cookies are owned and controlled by third parties, and therefore the third parties – and not honcho – are responsible for their use. As such, we can’t guarantee that we have listed every cookie you might get from a third party since a third party could change these cookies at any time as their needs change.
We also use social media tracking pixels. If you do not want to receive tracking pixels (aka “Web Beacons” or “Clear GIFs”), you will need to disable HTML images in your email client, but doing so may affect your ability to view images in emails that you receive.
