Linden Research, Inc. and its affiliates (collectively “Linden Lab”, “we”, “us”, “our”) respect the privacy of its online visitors and users of its websites, apps, products and services, including communication services, (collectively, the “Services”).

When you visit or access our Services, we will use (and authorize third parties to use) cookies and other similar tracking technologies. This policy (“Cookies Policy”) explains more about how we do so and what choices are available to you. This Cookies Policy forms part of our Privacy Policy which describes, amongst other things, the types of information we may obtain from you when you use our Services, how we use the information, with whom we share it, and what rights and choices you have concerning that information.

Cookies and other tracking technologies allow us to automatically collect information about you and your online behaviour in order to enhance your use of our Services, improve our Services performance, and customise your experience on our Services. We also use this information to collect statistics about the usage of our Services, perform analytics, deliver content which is tailored to your interests, and administer services to our users, customers and partners. We also allow third parties to collect information about you through cookies and other tracking technologies.

  • Cookies: Cookies are small data files stored on your browser or device. They may be served by the entity that operates the website you are visiting (these are called “first-party cookies”) or by other companies (which are called “third-party cookies”).
  • Pixels: Pixels are small images on a web page or in an email. Pixels collect information about your browser or device and can set cookies.

How do we use these cookies and tracking technologies?

More specifically, the purposes for which we and our partners use cookies and similar technologies generally fall into the following categories:

  • Strictly necessary: These cookies and tracking technologies are essential to enable you to login, navigate around and use the features of our Services, or to provide a service requested by you (such as your username). We do not need to obtain your consent in order to use these cookies and tracking technologies. These cookies and tracking technologies can be used for security and integrity reasons - for example to detect violation of our policies and for support or security features.
  • Functionality: These cookies and tracking technologies allow our Services to remember choices you make (such as your language) and provide enhanced and personalized features. For example, these cookies and tracking technologies are used for authentication (to remember when you are logged-in) and support other features of our Services.
  • Performance: These cookies and tracking technologies collect information about your online activity (for example the duration of your visit on our Services), including behavioural data and content engagement metrics. These cookies and tracking technologies are used for analytics, research and to perform statistics (based on aggregated information).
  • Marketing or Advertising: These cookies and tracking technologies are used to deliver tailored offers and advertisements to you, based on your derived interests, as well as to perform email marketing campaigns. They can also be used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by our advertisers (for example advertising networks) and provide them insights about the people who see and interact with their ads, visit their websites or use their app.
  • Social media: Our website includes social media features, such as the Facebook "Like" or "Share" buttons, or third party log-in services. These features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Services. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy statement of the company providing these features.

What information do we collect through cookies and tracking technologies?

  • Information about how you access the Services: When you use the Services, we automatically collect or receive some information about how you access the Services, including the device type, operating system, and browser you use, and how fast or stable your internet connection is. The information we receive depends on the device you are using and which Services you access.
  • Information about your activity on the Services: Information about your interactions with content viewed, and information about your interactions with email messages we send you, such as which links you click on, and whether the messages were opened or forwarded.
  • Unique identifiers: IP addresses associated with the devices you use to access the Services, Advertising IDs, Cookie IDs, and other unique identifiers.

The information we access through cookies and tracking technologies is processed in accordance with our  Privacy Policy.

Note that this consent management platform is set to appear only for EEA/UK/Switzerland-based IP addresses as detected via a third-party service.
