Peerspace Cookie Policy

Effective Date: September 24th, 2021

Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site.

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive.

We use the following cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.

  • Analytical or performance cookies. These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).

  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

Please note that the following third parties may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These named third parties may include, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services. These third-party cookies are likely to be analytical cookies or performance cookies or targeting cookies:

Opt-Out of Third-Party Personalized Advertising

You may opt out of cross-site third party personalized advertising using several industry-provided frameworks that many advertisers and advertising networks, exchanges, platforms, and technology providers participate in:

FrameworkList of ParticipantsDirect Link to Opt-Out
Network Advertising Initiative (NAI)https://www.networkadvertising.org/participating-networks/NAI Opt-Out Link
Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA)https://youradchoices.com/aboutDAA Opt-Out Link
Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada (DAAC)https://youradchoices.ca/en/participating-companiesDAAC Opt-Out Link
Digitrusthttps://www.digitru.st/participating-companies/Digitrust Opt-Out Link

Please note that even if you opt-out of interest-based advertising by a third party, these tracking technologies may still collect data for other purposes including analytics and you will still see ads from us, but the ads will not be targeted based on behavioural information about you and may therefore be less relevant to you and your interests.

Adjust Your Browser Setting to Block Third Party Cookies

You can also use your web browser to directly block all cookies, or just third-party cookies, through your browser settings. Using your browser settings to block all cookies, including strictly necessary ones, may interfere with proper site operation. Guidance on how to control cookies in popular browsers is contained here:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer
  • MacOS Safari
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Google Chrome

To successfully opt out, you must have cookies enabled in your web browser (see your browser's instructions for information on cookies and how to enable them). Your opt-out only applies to the web browser you use so you must opt-out of each web browser on each computer you use. Once you opt out, if you delete your browser's saved cookies, you will need to opt-out again.

Set Do Not Track

Your browser and other mechanisms may permit you to send do-not-track signals or other similar signals to express your preferences regarding online tracking. However, because there is not yet a defined response to do-not-track requests, our Site does not respond to your browser's do-not-track request. We cannot control third parties' responses to do-not-track signals or other such mechanisms. Third parties' use of data relating to you and responsiveness to do-not-track signals is governed by their respective privacy policies.

Adjust Other Settings You can adjust the information that other third parties collect about you:

  • Using Google's privacy controls to opt-out of ads and cookies set by Google. Please go here and here to opt-out of any personalized ads and cookies.
  • Using Facebook's privacy setting to restrict Facebook's use of cookies. Please go here to do so. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org which includes information on how to manage your settings for the major browser providers.
