What are cookies (nothing to do with chocolate chips)

Cookies are small data files that are issued to your device when you visit a website and that store information about your use of a service.

Why we use them

CrowdZap uses cookies and these other technologies to help recognize you as a repeat visitor, to improve the quality of our Services, and to make your browsing experience more meaningful and ultimately faster for you.

How they work

When you visit CrowdZap, our web server sends a cookie to your device, whatever it may be (e.g. Windows desktop or Android Mobile device)  which allows us to recognize your device (but not the specific person using it). By associating the identification numbers in the cookies with other account information when, for example, you log in to the Services, we know that the cookie information relates to your user account. Some of the tags and cookies  are served by us, and some are served by trusted partners delivering services on our behalf.

Some examples of the types of cookies and other technologies Kickstarter uses:

  • Authentication

    CrowdZap uses authentication cookies and similar technologies to tell us when you’re logged in. This lets us show you personalized views related to your interests and connect you with projects you may already have backed.

  • Security

    Cookies also help keep CrowdZap secure by enabling security features and allowing us to detect activity that might violate our rules and terms of service.

    These cookies help protect your account from being accessed by anyone other than you, alert you and us when your account is accessed, and provide capabilities that allow us to disable any active sessions you have (for example, when you log out or change your password).

  • Site features and services

    CrowdZap uses cookies that provide functionality and help us deliver our products and services — for instance, by pre-filling the username field when you log in.

  • Performance

    Performance cookies route traffic between servers and understand how CrowdZap is performing, to provide you with the best experience possible.

  • Analytics and research
