What are cookies?

We use the term ‘Cookies’ to refer to all technologies which store and access information on the device that you use to access the Online Services, such as your computer, tablet or mobile phone. For example, we use http cookies, which are small data files (typically made up of numbers and letters) that are downloaded when you access our Online Services and allow us to recognize your device. We also use technology like pixel tags and software kits embedded in our Online Services.

We use Cookies to enhance the online experience of our visitors and to better understand how the Online Services are used. Cookies may tell us whether you have visited the Online Services before or whether you are a new visitor.

There are different types of Cookies, for example:

  • Cookies served directly by Ursa Space Systems Inc. (‘first party cookies’) and cookies served on our behalf, for example by advertisers and data analytics companies (‘third party cookies’)
  • Cookies which endure for different periods of time, including those that only last as long as your browser is open (referred to as ‘session Cookies’). These are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other Cookies are ‘permanent cookies’, meaning that they survive after your browser is closed. For example, they recognize your device when you open your browser and browse the internet again.

Examples of the information we collect and analyze using Cookies include: the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; login; e-mail address; password; computer and connection information such as browser type, version, and time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system, and platform; the full Uniform Resource Locator (URL) clickstream to, through, and from our Web site, including date and time; cookie number; and data you viewed or searched for. During some visits we may use software tools such as JavaScript to measure and collect session information, including page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), and methods used to browse away from the page. We may also collect technical information to help us identify your device for diagnostic purposes.
