Statement on Cookies and Similar Technologies
Cookies. are a small piece of data sent from a website and stored on the user's computer by the user's web browser while the user is browsing. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember stateful information (such as items added in the shopping cart in an online store) or to record the user's browsing activity (including clicking particular buttons, logging in, or recording which pages were visited in the past). They can also be used to remember pieces of information that the user previously entered form fields, such as names, addresses, passwords, and credit-card numbers.
Cookies perform essential functions in the modern web. Perhaps most importantly, authentication cookies are the most common method used by web servers to know whether the user is logged in or not, and which account they are logged in with. Without such a mechanism, the site would not know whether to send a page containing sensitive information, or require the user to authenticate themselves by logging in. The security of an authentication cookie generally depends on the security of the issuing website and the user's web browser, and on whether the cookie data is encrypted. Security vulnerabilities may allow a cookie's data to be read by a hacker, used to gain access to user data, or used to gain access (with the user's credentials) to the website to which the cookie belongs.
Cookies are typically assigned to one of the following categories, depending on their function and intended purpose:
• Essential cookies: enables you to navigate our Website and to use the Service. Without these cookies, our Website will not perform as smoothly for you as we would like, and we may not be able to provide certain core functions and features.
• Analytics cookies: collect information about the use of our Website and application and enable us to improve the way our Service works. For example, analytics cookies show us the most frequently visited pages and analyze site traffic. We use them to analyze broad trends and patterns of usage on our Website, rather than to monitor the usage of any individual and/or business.
Simplex Financials, Inc. uses third-party service providers, including Google Analytics, to analyze the use of our Website. You can opt-out of the use of web analysis at any time either by downloading and installing a Browser Plugin offered by Google or by configuring your browser to delete and reject cookies.
