Types of Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies at Shub
Session and Persistent: We use session and persistent cookies. Session cookies exist only during one session. They disappear when you close your browser, restart, or turn off your device. Persistent cookies remain on your device after you close your browser, restart, or turn off your device.
Transactional and Functionality:
Device Identifiers: When you access our Services through a mobile device, we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store such device identifiers as “universally unique identifiers (UUID)”. These are small data files stored on or associated with your device. This may be used to help you log in faster and enhance your navigation of the Shub Services. These device identifiers also collect your location data, to provide you with location-based services such as retail store locations near you, only when you consent to location services.
Transaction Identifiers: When you use our Services, we may access, collect, or store transaction identifiers, an internal identification number that we assign to our customers. This enables us to understand and review your transactions with Shub.
Google Analytics: We use Google Analytics to measure how you interact with our Services and to improve your user experience. To learn more about Google Analytics privacy practices and opt-out mechanisms please visit the Google Analytics Security and Privacy principles.
Clear Gifs (Web Beacons/Web Bugs)
Services Functionality: Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that are used to track the online movements of website users. Shub uses clear gifs in combination with cookies to help us better manage content of the Services by informing us what content is effective.
Affiliate Programs: We also use clear gifs to support affiliate programs administered by third-party companies. These programs allow other web services to offer special Shub deals to their customers. When a customer signs-up for the Services via an affiliate link on a non-Shub website, we display a clear gif which causes a cookie to be passed to the third-party administrator for accounting purposes. That means, for example, that if a personvisited “www.companyzzz.com” and from “www.companyzzz.com” clicked on a “Sign-up for Shub” link and completed the Shub sign-up process, we would display a clear gif causing a cookie to be transferred to the affiliate program administrator. This cookie contains an ID number that tells the third-party administrator that a new user was sent to Shub from “www.companyzzz.com”.
HTML Emails: We use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by the recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
