Cookie policy

When you use Panini web sites with a web browser, our web server may place one or more “cookies” on your machine. Cookies are small files which contain text that can be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. That text often consists of a string of numbers and letters that uniquely identifies your computer, but may contain other information as well.

We may use cookies for:

  • Sign-in and Authentication. When you sign in to Panini PartnerPlus, we store your unique ID number, and the time you signed in, in an encrypted cookie on your hard disk. This cookie allows you to move from page to page without having to sign in again on each page. When you sign out, these cookies are deleted from your computer. We also use cookies to improve the sign-in experience. For example, your e-mail address may be stored in a cookie that will remain on your computer after you sign out. This cookie allows your e-mail address to be pre-populated, so that you will only need to type your password the next time you sign in.
  • Targeted Advertising. When we display online advertisements to you, we will place one or more persistent cookies on your device in order to recognize your device each time we display an ad to you. Because we serve advertisements on web sites of our advertising and publisher partners, we are able to compile information over time about the types of pages you visit on Panini and other sites, content and ads you, or others who are using your computer, visited or viewed. This information is used for many purposes, for example to help select and display targeted advertisements that we believe may be of interest to you.
  • Site Analytics. We may use cookies to count the number of unique visitors to a web page or service or to develop other aggregate statistics about the operations of our sites and services. These analytics help us operate and improve the performance of these sites and services.

Some of the cookies we commonly use are listed in the following chart. This list is not exhaustive, but it is intended to illustrate the reasons we typically set cookies. If you visit one of our web sites, the site may set some or all of the following cookies:

In addition to the cookies Panini may set when you visit our web sites, third parties may also set certain cookies on your device when you visit Panini sites. In some cases, that is because we have hired the third party to provide certain services on our behalf. Because your browser connects to third parties’ web servers to retrieve content, those third parties are able to set or read their own cookies on your device and may collect information about your online activities across websites or online services.
