What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a Site. Cookies are widely used by Site owners in order to make their Sites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by us are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than us are called "third party cookies". Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the Site (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the Site in question and also when it visits certain other Sites.
We use first party and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for our Sites and Service Offerings to operate, and we refer to these as "Necessary" cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Sites. Third parties serve cookies through our Sites for advertising, analytics and other purposes.
Preferences for cookies (other than Necessary cookies, which may not be adjusted as the Site or Service Offering cannot function without them) may be adjusted at any time through Cookie Preferences (found on the banner at the bottom of the page), or by changing your browser settings to block or delete cookies. For more information on adjusting browser settings, please see “How can I control cookies?”
The specific types of first- and third-party cookies served through our Sites and Service Offerings, and the purposes they perform, are described in the table below:
|Necessary cookies are essential to providing you with services available through our Sites and to use some features, such as access to secure areas.|
|First parties serving Necessary cookies: |
• Ping Identity
Note: PingID, our MFA Service Offering, will also serve a “pid” cookie to our customer’s workforce, partners or their customers who are using the PingID Desktop App. This cookie influences the behaviour of the PingID Policy configured by customer administrators and controls the authentication process.
|Third parties serving Necessary cookies: |
|Performance cookies allow us to monitor website visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our Sites. They help us find out which pages visitors go to most often and understand how visitors navigate our Sites. All the information in these cookies collect is in aggregate form and therefore anonymous.|

|Functionality cookies are used to provide enhanced functionality and personalization on our Sites. They remember choices you make (such as your language preferences or the region you are in) and provide more personal features such as tailored content and fully functioning live chat. If you do not allow these cookies, then some or all of these services may not function properly.|

|Targeting cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you. They perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are properly displayed for advertisers, and in some cases selecting advertisements that are based on your interests. The intention is to display ads that are engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for publishers and third-party advertisers. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.|

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a Site. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels” or “clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited or revisited our Site. This allows us, for example, to:
