Categories: Necessary cookies or analytics cookies?
The platform uses a number of necessary cookies as a part of the product. These required cookies are used, for example, when a video editor logs in to the product; to remember when a video collector has been filled; or to secure access to webinars for registrants. The platform also uses necessary cookies to load balance traffic and optimize performance. Below and in the product these cookies are labeled as “necessary cookies”.
Additionally, the platform can be set up to make use of analytics cookies to track visitor usage patterns to use for example in contact profiles and for detailed video analytics. This includes visitor across across sessions along with referrer tracking and compilation of embed sources. If you choose only to use necessary cookies, some analytics information may become inaccurate. Below and in the product these cookies are labeled as “analytics cookies”.
These additional cookies serve not only to provide more accurate analytics, but can also greatly improve the user experience on the platform. For example, a user will be able to join a webinar directly even if registered days earlier.
In some cases the expiration time of a cookie determines whether it is functions as a necessary cookie for a single session – or as a long-lasting analytics cookie used to track usage across browsing sessions.
Types: Visitor cookies or login cookies
Cookies are used for three types of contexts:
- Visitor cookies: Cookies are also used to service web site, webinar and video visitors. A subset of cookies are necessary for the service while others are used for tracking and analytics.
- Load balancing cookies: The platform also uses necessary cookies to load balance traffic and optimize performance. Load balancing cookies are always necessary and never serve as analytics cookies.

- Both necessary cookies and marketing cookies: In this mode, additional cookies are set for analytics and visitor tracking purposes, for example to remember the user identity and preference across browsing sessions.
When these settings are changed, the selected option start will having effect for future visits to platform.
