A cookie is a small piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user for a particular web site. OfferTix sometimes uses cookies to track information, to understand our users better, and for our users' convenience. For example, OfferTix can remember your login address using a cookie, so you don't have to re-type it every time you come to the site.
 
In addition to cookies stored on the user's hard drive, OfferTix also uses session cookies to manage user sessions. These are small bits of data that allow our web server to communicate with a user's browser, and when the user closes the browser the session cookie terminates.
 
Some of our business partners use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to these cookies.
