CoderPad Cookie Policy

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. They contain information about how your browser and the site should interact. The website may retrieve these cookies from your web browser (eg Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Mozilla Firefox) each time you visit, so they can recognise your device, remember your preferences and provide you with a secure online experience.

Cookies are commonly used by almost every website because they help improve your user experience. For security reasons, many websites will not fully function without the use of cookies. Cookies typically do not contain any information to identify a natural person, but are instead used to identify a browser on an individual machine.

If you prefer to not use cookies, you can restrict, block or delete cookies by changing your browser settings. That may mean that the websites you visit won’t work as designed.

Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential to the function of some CoderPad features and services, most importantly website login. Without these cookies, you will not be able to access your account, and some other features may not work as expected. These cookies do not collect identifying information about you, and they do not monitor or remember any of your internet browsing on sites other than CoderPad.

Third-party cookies

Analytics Cookies

Analytics cookies help us understand how customers use our site, so we can keep our products relevant and up to date. This data is anonymous and only used for statistical purposes, analytics cookies do not collect or share any personally identifiable information. These cookies qualify as “third-party” cookies as they are not sent directly by CoderPad.

We use Google Analytics, a popular web analytics service provided by Google. Google Analytics uses cookies to help us to analyze how users use the site. It counts the number of visitors and tells us things about their behavior in the aggregate – for example, we can see which user guides are most popular or see how many people visit our Sandbox. Google Analytics does not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

Managing cookies

Most internet browsers allow you to erase cookies from your computer, block all cookies (or just third-party cookies) or warn you before a cookie is stored on your device.

If you choose to block all cookies, CoderPad will not function as intended, and you will not be able to log in. If you have blocked all cookies and wish to make full use of the features and services we offer, we recommend enabling at least first-party cookies. Rather than blocking all cookies, you can choose to block only third-party cookies. This will allow CoderPad to function as intended.
