PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS WEB SITE
In this Cookies Policy, we use the term Sapiens (and “we”, “us” and “our”) to refer to Sapiens International Corporation and the Sapiens affiliates (as detailed in the Company’s 20F filing). This Cookies Policy forms part of our Web Site Terms and Conditions, available at http://www.sapiens.com/legal-notice/. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this Cookies Policy have the same meaning given in our Web Site Terms and Conditions.
What is a cookie?
Cookies are computer files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies can then be sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are widely used in order to make websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.
Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. Cookies may tell us, for example, whether you have visited our Web Site before or whether you are a new visitor.
There are two broad categories of cookies:
- First party cookies, served directly by us to your computer or mobile device.
- Third party cookies, which are served by a third party on our behalf. We use third party cookies for functionality, performance / analytics, and social media purposes.
Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. Some cookies are ‘session cookies’, meaning that they exist only while your browser is open. These are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are ‘permanent cookies’, meaning that they survive after your browser is closed. They can be used by websites to recognise your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.
We may also use web beacon or other similar cookie technologies. When a visitor accesses our Web Site, a non-identifiable notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by us or by third parties. These web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies. If you don’t want your cookie information to be associated with your visits to these pages, you can set your browser to turn off cookies as described further below. If you turn off cookies, web beacon and other technologies will still detect your visits to our Web Site; however, they will not be associated with information otherwise stored in cookies.
- track traffic flow and patterns of travel in connection with our Web Site;
- understand the total number of visitors to our sites on an ongoing basis and the types of internet browsers (e.g. Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer) and operating systems (e.g. Windows or Mac) used by our visitors;
- monitor the performance of our Web Site and to continually improve it;
- customize and enhance your online experience; and
- enable social media plugins.
We also use third parties called Google Analytics and Marketo to gather general information about how people use our website for the purposes of website optimisation and analytics. To find out more about Google Analytics privacy policies, please visit https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage.
We may also include web beacons in marketing e-mail messages in order to determine whether messages have been opened and links contained within them have been clicked. In addition third-party social media buttons may log certain information such as your IP address, browser type and language, access time, and referring Web Site addresses, and, if you are logged in to those social media sites, they may also link such collected information with your profile information on that site. We do not control these third-party tracking technologies.
What types of cookies do we use?
The types of cookies used by us and our partners in connection with the Web Site can be classified into the following categories, namely ‘essential website cookies’, ‘functionality cookies’, ‘analytics and performance cookies’, ‘social media cookies’, and ‘geotargetting’ cookies’. We’ve set out some further information about each category, and the purposes of the cookies we and third parties set in the following table.
- Cookies necessary for essential website purposes
These cookies are essential to provide you with services available through this Web Site and to use some of its features. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, like secure login accounts, would not be possible.
- Functionality Cookies
Functionality cookies record information about choices you’ve made and allow us to tailor the website to you. These cookies mean that when you continue to use or come back to the Web Site, we can provide you with our services as you have asked for them to be provided. For example, these cookies allow us to:
- Save your location preference if you have set your location on the homepage in order to receive a localized information;
- Remember settings you have applied, such as layout, text size, preferences, and colors;
- Show you when you are logged in; and
- Store accessibility options.
- Performance / Analytics Cookies
We use performance/analytics cookies to analyze how the website is accessed, used, or is performing in order to provide you with a better user experience and to maintain, operate and continually improve the website. For example, these cookies allow us to:
- Better understand our website visitors so that we can improve how we present our content;
- Test different design ideas for particular pages, such as our homepage;
- Collect information about site visitors such as where they are located and what browsers they are using;
- Determine the number of unique users of the website;
- Improve the website by measuring any errors that occur; and
- Conduct research and diagnostics to improve product offerings.
- Social Media Cookies
On some pages of our website, third parties that provide applications through our website may set their own anonymous cookies in order to track the success of their applications or customize applications for you. For example, when you share an article using a social media sharing button on our website (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, LinkedIn, or YouTube), the social network that has created the button will record that you have done this. Because of how cookies work, we cannot access these cookies, nor can the third parties access the data in cookies used by Sapiens. Some pages of our website may also contain embedded content, such as video content from YouTube, and these sites may set their own cookies.
- Geotargetting Cookies
These cookies are used by software which tries to work out what country you are in from the information supplied by your browser when you click on our Web Site. This cookie is completely anonymous, and we only use it to help target our content – such as whether you see our US or Europe home page.
- Flash Cookies
These cookies are similar to the browser cookies described above, but are loaded together with contents that are played back using Adobe’s Flash Player.
How to control or delete cookies
Most browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. These settings will typically be found in the “options” or “preferences” menu of your browser. In order to understand these settings and learn how to use them, please consult the “Help” function of your browser, or the documentation published online for your particular browser type and version.
