What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files containing a string of characters that can be placed on your computer or mobile device that uniquely identify your browser or device. Cookies allow a site or service to know if your computer or device has visited that site or service before. They enable the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
Cookies can also help understand how the site or service is being used, help you navigate between pages efficiently and generally improve your browsing experience. Moreover, cookies also help ensure marketing you see online is more relevant to you and your interests.
What types of cookies does OneStream use?
There are generally four categories of cookies: “Strictly Necessary,” “Performance,” “Functionality,” and “Targeting.” OneStream routinely uses all four categories of cookies on the Services. You can find out more about each cookie category below.
We have a number of affiliates who promote OneStream on a success-only basis (i.e. instead of paying for advertising, we pay them commissions on sales). Cookies are required to track affiliate sales hence allow us to reward them. These cookies are usually provided by specialist companies. We ask you to support us by allowing these cookies which ultimately help us to offer you the service we do at the price we do.
How long will cookies stay on my device?
The length of time a cookie will stay on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies stay on your computer or mobile device until they expire or are deleted. You can see the details about our cookies’ expiration time in our cookie declaration.
First and third-party cookies
First-party cookies are cookies that are created by and belong to OneStream. Third-party cookies are cookies that are created by other companies (e.g. Facebook, Google etc.) and placed by us on our websites and mobile app. Third-party cookies may be placed on your device by someone providing a service for OneStream, for example to help us understand how our services are being used. Third-party cookies may also be placed on your device by our business partners so that they can use them to advertise products and services to you elsewhere on the Internet.
You can view detailed list of every cookie that we use, its provider, purpose and expiry time and other technical information in our cookie declaration.
