Cookie Notice

Last updated: September 22, 2021

When you visit Humu’s company website, www.humu.com, or use the Humu Services through a website (together, “Sites”), we and our service providers acting on our behalf collect certain data using cookies. This notice describes our use of cookies and what we use them for.

The Humu Services may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of associated providers. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy and cookie policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you use the websites and submit any personal information to these websites.

What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a text file which can be sent from a website and stored in a user’s web browser while a user is browsing that website. When the user browses the same website or another website that recognizes that cookie in the future, the data stored in the cookie can be retrieved by the website to notify the website of the user’s previous activity.

Cookies fulfill many different tasks, as for example letting you navigate between pages efficiently or remembering your preferences. They can also help to ensure that online-advertisements are more relevant to you with regard to your interests. If cookies collect any personal data that could on its own or together with other data be used to identify you, that personal information will be used in accordance with the Humu Privacy Statement.

Humu uses both first party cookies, which are set by the Sites being visited, and third party cookies, which are set by a server located outside the Humu company website or Humu Services. Humu also uses both session and persistent cookies. Session cookies are cookies that disappear from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies stay on your computer even after you’ve turned it off. 

You can turn off your web browser’s ability to accept cookies. But, if you do that, certain parts of the Humu company website or Humu Services may not work for you.

What Cookies Does Humu Use?

Below we list the different types of cookies that may be used on the Humu company website or Humu Services. The Sites use both first party cookies (which are set by the Sites being visited) and third party cookies (which are set by a server located outside the domain of our Sites).

  1. Required Cookies

Certain cookies are necessary in order for the Humu company website or Humu Services to operate correctly and remain secure, to ensure essential functionality, and to measure and analyze site traffic at the aggregate level. Often these cookies are set in response to a request for service or functionality made by you. We have to load required cookies for legitimate interests pursued by us in delivering essential functionality of the Humu company website and Humu Services.

  1. Functional Cookies

These cookies collect information about your choices and preferences, and collect information about your use of the Sites which enable us to improve functionality. For example, these cookies may show us which are the most frequently visited pages, allow us to present the Humu Services according to the settings you selected, help us record any difficulties you have with the Humu Services, and show us whether our advertising is effective or not. In some cases these cookies allow us to see the overall patterns of usage on the Humu company website or Humu Services, rather than the usage of a single person (except where that is part of the necessary function of the cookie).

  1. Analytics and Performance Cookies

These cookies collect data about how visitors use the Humu company website or Humu Services. This includes data like which pages visitors go to the most. These cookies don’t collect information that individually identifies visitors or users. The data these cookies collect is aggregated and intended to be anonymous and used to improve how the site functions and performs. We may also have third party service providers help us track and analyze usage and volume statistical information from individuals who visit our Site.

  1. Advertising Cookies

The Humu Services do not place cookies on a user’s computer for advertising purposes.

We may use cookies on the Humu company website to market Humu services to you on third party websites or to measure and track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts so that we can tailor our advertising more effectively. We also contract with third party advertising networks that may collect IP addresses and other information from web beacons on our websites, emails, and on third party websites. They use this information to provide advertisements about products and services that may be of interest to you. You may see these advertisements on other websites.
